Enrol for 2020 entry

We are accepting enrolment for entry in 2020 for all year levels (Prep to Year 6). Please note that Prep 2020 enrolment was due by Friday 31st May 2019. Families who have submitted their child's enrolment documentation will be advised in writing by Friday 26th July if a place can be offered. If EHPS is your designated neighbourhood school and Prep enrolment is required, please contact our Office as soon as possible. For entry to Years 1 to 6 in 2020, contact our Office to enquire if placement is available. Enrolment documentation must be submitted within one month of receiving an offer of enrolment, and no later than Friday 29th November 2019.

Use Department of Education & Training (DET) Find My School, the official and most up to date school zones site, to determine your designated neighbourhood school, or check a school zone - CLICK HERE. Also refer to DET Enrolment FAQs - CLICK HERE.

Contact our Office between 9.30am and 2.30pm regarding enrolment at EHPS, and/or book a school tour (weekly on Thursday and Friday at 9.30am). Our school tours are recommended, but not compulsory, for families considering enrolment at EHPS in the upcoming school year (entry in 2020).

In Victoria, all children are entitled to be enrolled at their designated neighbourhood school as a right under the legislation, the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic). Designated neighbourhood schools are generally the public school within closest proximity to the student’s permanent residential address, unless the Minister for Education or Regional Director has restricted the zone of the school. EHPS also has an official enrolment ceiling applied by DET due to site capacity.

If EHPS is not your neighbourhood school, enrolment is offered at the discretion of our Principal if there is sufficient capacity onsite and in the required year level, in accordance with our enrolment policy and DET Placement Policy.

A child must be five years of age by 30th April of the year they start primary school to be eligible for enrolment in a Victorian Government School. Your child must be at school in the year that they turn six years of age (this is the compulsory school starting age). EHPS currently offers four Prep classes each year (approximately 80 children).

All required documentation is detailed in the Enrolment section of this website - click here. Please note that original copies of the supporting documentation must be provided and a copy will be taken.

If enrolment for entry in 2021 and beyond is required, enrolment will be accepted in the year prior to entry.
