We believe in giving your child the best start in Education, and so it is appreciated if you ring and make an appointment with the Principle to complete the enrolment form.

If you live out of the school’s enrolment area, we have application forms for out of zone enrolments and we’d be pleased to give or send you one.  If you’re just looking around, we’re always happy to tell you about Waterlea.

Reporting to Parents

We have two formal reporting types and times.  In May/June we send home your child’s portfolio of work and we have parent interviews to discuss known progress and to set ongoing targets.

In November/December we send home a completed Portfolio and a full written report.

Of course, we are very happy to discuss your child’s progress or any concerns you have over the school year.
