Enrolment Information

Parents/carers of children who are seeking school placement are encouraged to contact Sunshine SDS to book a school tour. This visit gives you the opportunity to view our school, tour the school grounds, discuss how our school operates and answer any questions you may have in regard to enrolment.


If your child is beginning the journey of school entry, staff are available to discuss this process and support the application of enrolment, assessment and funding applications.


All new prep enrolments are guided through an assessment process.  This process involves our school organising a Psychologist to assess if your child has a cognitive score up to 50 on an adaptive assessment scale using a Vineland assessment.


This document is then used to assist a team to apply for resourcing to support your child through their educational years at our school. This process can take several months to complete so parents are encouraged to visit local schools and express interest in enrolment for this process to begin.

Enrolment requirements include:

  • A completed copy of our enrolment form obtained from the enrolment coordinator
  • A copy of the student’s birth certificate or passport
  • A Visa or letter of confirmation of residency in Australia
  • A copy of the student’s immunisation records
  • A copy of any medical plan such as epilepsy, asthma, medication or specific medical intervention
  • A copy of any previous reports or medical documentation

At this stage school bus transport is provided to any student residing within our transport zone.


Sunshine SDS encourages Support Services and Children’s Services to visit our school throughout the year to provide information and support to their parent communities.
