Foundation at Livingstone



Enrolments




Due to current COVID restrictions, we are unable to host our normal on-site tours for prospective enrolments. If your child is due to begin school next year and you have not yet enrolled them, it is now a crucial time to do so.

Please note that children born before April 30 may start school in the year in which they turn five. Children born after May 1 begin school in the year that they turn six.

Should you wish to learn more about our 2021 Foundation program, please use the following link to our LPS Kinder-Foundation Transition Hub  which will provide up-to-date information, videos (for both students and parents), handy resources and an informative FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page. 
 
Should you require further information, please don’t hesitate to contact our school office on 9803 7672 or drop us a line via our email address livingstone.ps@education.vic.gov.au.


STEAM

Our 1:1 iPad program is for students across all year levels to support our STEAM learning focus. This begins during Semester 2 of Foundation.

All students from Foundation to Year 6 participate in dedicated science sessions, including working in our school science lab. The curriculum integration of science and other STEAM areas are supported by our STEAM Coaches – a team of teachers across the school with specialised training in these areas who work alongside teachers and students in classrooms.


Placement and zoning

The Department of Education provides enrolment information through the School Placement Policy. This policy provides students and families an understanding of their designated neighbourhood school via findmyschool.vic.gov.au and how they have the freedom to choose schools. Families residing in our zone 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.
