Nambrok-Denison Primary School is a community school with a strong sense of ownership and pride. It has a stong partnership between parents, students and staff.
Children who will reach the age of five years on or before 30th April may commence school in January of that year. An enrolment form may be obtained from the school office or downloaded here.
On first enrolment of a child, a Full Birth Certificate must be produced as proof of date of birth. An immunisation certificate, received from the Immunisation Register, is also required to be presented on enrolment. These certificates are available from Municipal Health Officers attached to local Councils.
For further information about immunisation go to:
Please make all enrolment enquiries through the School Office by phone on (03) 5149 2410.
Newly enrolled Prep students are invited to the school during fourth term in the year prior to their commencing school, as part of a transition-to-school program. Parents of new Prep children are invited by the school community to an information meeting over a morning tea. This is a wonderful opportunity for new parents to meet other parents at our school, and to learn about school life.
The cluster school events form an important part of our Transition program. Over the years children from the rural schools develop close friendships with each other, which in turn builds the network of children that they know well when they transition to secondary school. Formal transition sessions occur with the individual Secondary Schools.
Our school uniform items are available for purchase at school. Selected second hand items are also available for purchase at a discounted price. Please note that students must wear correct school jumpers as part of their uniform.
We request that all personal requisites andschool uniform items be clearly marked with your child's name. This makes the process of returning lost property quick and easy and saves parents the cost of replacements.
School Lunch Orders are only available on certain days. You can download a list of items available and prices from the link below. Please write your lunch order, name & class on a PAPER BAG and include correct change where possible. Lunch Orders are to be placed in tubs in classrooms BEFORE 9:15am
A home order is where a student brings lunch from home that they would like heated up at school. Their food needs to be wrapped in aluminium foil and labelled with their name and class. Orders are collected and placed in the pie warmer and delivered back to them at lunch time. Home orders are available every day.
A government provided school bus currently services students at our school. More information about bus route and times can be obtained at the office.
Starting school is a big step and can be both challenging and exciting for both parents and children. You can make a difference by supporting what your child learns at school, by helping them to learn at home.
The Victorian DET (Department of Education and Training) have produced a booklet called The 201 Literacy and Maths Tips which provides handy hints and ways you can help your child develop literacy and maths skills. It provides practical activities for you do with your child at home and questions you can ask your child to help them learn.
The Department of Education and Training Victoria has produced a free App called SchoolMate that provides a wealth of information for parents about what the curriculum covers at each year level from Foundationto Year 10 and suggests activities and reading that you can do at home to support your child's learning.
