Doreen PS is a small country school with an enrolment cap of 150 students, therefore we can only offer a limited number of places in our Foundation/Prep year. Our 2023 class has been filled, and we are now accepting applications up to the 2024 school year.
Please note that we do not have a before and after school care program .
Our criteria for Foundation Year enrolment is as follows:
Preference is given to those families living within our catchment area then to siblings of existing families. After those requirements have been met we work by date of receipt of enrolment form, starting with the Doreen area and working our way out to other suburbs until we have reached our limit. As we have a high number of applications it is advantageous to get an enrolment form in as soon as possible so as to get that early date of receipt. A link to our enrolment form is provided below.
We run four transition days in the year prior to commencement. These days are organised so the children can experience all of our specialist programs which include Art, Music, PhysEd and Auslan. They also spend time in the classroom getting acquainted with their teachers and their classmates.
Our Teacher Janette Colistra. along with Teacher Assistant Linda Thomas, have over twenty years experience and do an amazing job. They work extremely well together, and students thrive on the enthusiastic, caring environment they create.
