Enrolment

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.

You need to apply to enrol your children in school for 2016 if they are:

  • starting Kindergarten – 4 years old by 30 June 2016
  • starting Pre-primary, the first year of compulsory school – 5 years old by 30 June 2016
  • starting Year 7, the first year of secondary school in 2015
  • starting Year 8
  • changing schools.

Every child from Pre-Primary to Year 6 living in Dampier is guaranteed a place at Dampier Primary School.
