Enrolment - A Welcome Note

On behalf of our community, school council and myself, I thank you for your consideration to enrol your child into Alvie Primary School.  By enrolling in our school, you become part of our learning community, where we work together support all aspects of your child’s wellbeing and future as a learner. 

Since October 2017, I have led the strategic development of the school and have been delighted in the progress made and the exciting plans for our future.  I am very lucky to work with a team of professionals, who are passionate about their roles within the school.  We have developed a culture of relational trust, which enables us to collaboratively work together to ensure our practice is relevant, high quality and evidence based.


Enrolments have grown in our school from 36 students in 2017 to 51 students in 2019.  Our enrolment forecasts for the next two years will see student numbers rise to 70-75 students by 2021, and for these numbers to remain steady for years to come.  Based enrolment growth, we plan to form four separate classes.  In the Early Years Centre, there will be a Grade Prep and a Grades 1-2 class, and in the Senior Years Centre, there will be Grades 3-4 and Grades 5-6 classes.  


Be assured that by enrolling your child in our school, they will experience an education that addresses the needs of the whole child.  By the time your child completes their seven years attending Alvie Consolidated School, they will have all the values, skills and dispositions to actively, manage their social and emotional behaviours and to be happy, self-regulated and productive life- long learners.   Most importantly your child will love learning, no how to learn, be inquisitive, curious and creative.

This enrolment book contains essential information that may assist you to decide whether to enrol your child in our school.  It also contains all of the information that you will need to transition your child and family into the school community.

If you have any queries about enrolling your child at Alvie Consolidated School, please do not hesitate to contact me. 



Best Regards
