Woodside Primary School takes enrolments for students in Foundation (Prep) to Grade 6 throughout the year as we understand that you may be looking for a school for your child at times other than the start of the school year.

We encourage you to enrol your child in July for the following year.  Please note that in order to be eligible to begin school, your child must turn 5 by April 30 in the year that they start school.  Please go to the Starting Primary School Guide website for further information about enrolling in state government schools.
