How to enrol your child at Immanuel

Immanuel Gawler welcomes new enquiries about our school whether you have young children about to commence schooling or you are looking for a position in a particular year level.

Each term we offer several “Open Days”, where you can visit the school and have an informal tour of the classrooms with our Principal.  Open Day dates will be displayed on our website and advertised within the local community.  

We also offer a Prospectus which provides further details about our school. The Prospectus can be obtained on Open Days, from our school office or click on the link to view.

Another good way of finding out about us, is to look at our schools Facebook page.

Process for Student Enrolments:

There is 1 formal intake of new foundation students in Term 1 of each year, unless places are not filled. These students will need to be 5 years of age before 30 April of their first year of school.

The following process is a guide.

  1. Attend a school open day tour on one of the set dates.   There will be multiple opportunities throughout the year. 
  2. Lodge the Enrolment Application Form/s with a non-refundable administration fee of $40.
  3. Attend an interview with the Principal (or delegate) when invited. Bring your child to meet our Principal and provide adequate information regarding the child.  Consider your ability to support the ethos and policies of the school and seek clarification on any matters in order to be ready should a position be offered.
  4. These interviews will be generally conducted early in the school year and involve a tour of our school. They usually take about an hour.  
  5. Applications will be considered by the school and Offers of Enrolment letters will be sent to families accordingly.  Families can consider and will have a clearly defined deadline. 
  6. To secure the position the Enrolment Acceptance Agreement Form will need to be signed and returned along with an enrolment guarantee fee of $400.  This amount is only refundable when the child graduates from Immanuel at the end of their primary education, transfers to another Lutheran School or proof can be shown that the family has moved away from the area such that travel is unreasonable. 
  7. A separate Enrolment Application Form is required for each child.
  8. Discretionary enrolment interviews will be made as needed (if places become available and / or a family moves in the area).

Priority Enrolment

We guarantee siblings but ask that an enrolment form is still lodged. After this we give priority to students coming from Zion Preschool.

Mid-Year Intake for Foundation

There have been some changes to Government policy recently around starting dates for children.
While we cannot guarantee it, we will consider starting students at the beginning of the second semester so long as:

  • They turn five sometime during Term 2 or Term 3
  • Parents/caregivers understand and accept that midyear starters will do 6 terms of Foundation. 

Process for Enrolment of Students in year levels other than Foundation: 

Same as above process – along with  

  1. Enrolments are subject to adequate space and resources being available.
  2. It is important to share any information that may be relevant to your child’s learning.  
  3. The ‘Application for Enrolment’ form must be filled in and signed and forwarded with a non-refundable administration fee of $40 before a child may be considered for admission to the school.
  4. Placement will be given to siblings of enrolled students, although all appropriate paperwork must be completed. The next priority will be families transferring from other Lutheran Educational facilities, either school or pre-school. 

The Enrolment Application Form can be downloaded from this website.
