Who needs to enrol?

All school-aged children must be enrolled in school and attend every day – this is the law.

In Western Australia, children can start their education in Kindergarten. Compulsory schooling starts the following year in Pre-primary.

All children must attend school up until they are 16 years old. Sixteen and 17 year olds must be enrolled in school or a training organisation, be employed or be in a combination of school/training/employment.
