Enrolment Forms

There is a difference between an application form and an enrolment form. The application form informs the school that you are wanting to enrol your child in 2024 or 2025. An enrolment form will be provided if your details meet the Department of Education’s requirements. Mt Eliza Primary School requires that an application form to enrol should be lodged with the school, within the time frame.

An application form can be obtained from our school or you can download it here.
Prospective parents/carers can fill out the form online and then email the school at, hand deliver it or send via post.
