Starting school is a major milestone in a child’s life. It is an exciting and emotional time for both you, as parent, and your child. The transition can be made smoother through your positive encouragement and partnership with your child’s school. Together, we can support your child on their learning journey to achieve their potential.

School Tours

We invite prospective parents to tour the school and see our programs in action.  School tours are held every Monday at 2pm, Wednesday at 9.30am and Friday at 9.30am during the school term.  Please contact the school office to make a booking or to discuss a mutually convenient time.  +61 3 9598 1704

Completing the Enrolment - All Students

A parent or guardian enrolling a child in a Victorian state school will be required to complete an enrolment form (under the downloads tab), provide evidence of the date of birth of the child and evidence of the child's immunisation.  Children immunised within Australia can obtain a copy of their immuisation history from the Department of Human Services.

For children living with more than one family, please complete an additional information form (under the downloads tab).

  • The enrolment form must be completed and signed
  • SEPS do not have waiting lists nor a zone limiting enrolment areas as we can accomodate students who wish to enrol.
  • Children who are not Australian citizens are required to provide a copy of their current visa
  • Children enrolling in the Foundation year (first year of school) must be at least 5 years of age by the 30th of April in the year in which they enrol
  • Enrolments for Foundation 2018 are requested to be submitted by the end of Term 2, Friday June 23rd but can be accepted later in the year.

International Students are Welcome

Our school is able to receive international fee paying students. More information is available on the Department of Education's website.

If your child is an Australian citizen, no fees are payable and enrolment may commence immediately you arrive. For certain categories of permanent and long term residency, the same applies.

However, if your child is travelling on a visitor visa, a student visa or short term residency visa, you may need to pay fees to the Victorian Government, prior to starting school. In this case, please contact the Principal on walton.laureen.e@edumail.vic.gov.au and we will reserve a place for your child and organise forms and information to be sent to you. The process then is that you will make arrangements with the Department of Education and Training to pay fees. Your child may then commence at Sandringham East as soon as they arrive.

School tours with our Principal, Laureen Walton can be arranged.  Phone +61 3 9598 1704
