Tours & Enrolments


Tours

Livingstone Primary School tours commence in March 2021. Please complete the contact form on this page to register your interest and we will contact you confirming your school tour.
We understand that school choice is such an important decision for families and encourage you to browse through our website to learn about our school. This will provide an excellent overview of the programs our school offers, the wonderful qualities of our community members, our school results and the facilities we have available to us.
Should you know of people who are already part of our school community; friends, family members, neighbours, please ask them for feedback as to their thoughts and impressions of our school. Asking a ‘third party’ is always a great way of gaining a fair and accurate description of our values, communication practices and performance.
Enrolment forms can be made available to you by making an inquiry through our school office. Please just call or send us an email. Out of area enrolments (outside of Vermont South) will still be accepted, and will be considered according to enrolment numbers in the relevant year level/s.

Enrolments

If your child is starting school next year then it is now time to start the enrolment process. Children born before April 30 may start school in the year in which they turn five, children born after May 1 start school in the year that they turn six.

Further information regarding our Foundation program, will be found in our soon-to-be-released LPS Kinder-Foundation Transition Hub. This hub will provide up-to-date information, videos (for both students and parents), handy resources and an informative FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page.

Students currently studying at another school and families who are planning to move into the area, please contact us at any time to discuss possible enrolment. Students who are moving from another school are requested to provide Livingstone PS with any past reports to assist our teaching and planning for your child.


Placement and Zoning

The Department of Education provides enrolment information through the School Placement Policy. This policy provides students and families with an understanding of their designated neighbourhood school via Find My School and how they have the freedom to choose schools. Families residing in our neighbourhood and siblings of current students will have a place at our school. A number of other students are accepted, subject to capacity, in order of closeness of their home to the school.
