Parents seeking enrolment for their child at Vineyard Lutheran School should request a copy of the school Prospectus and Information Package.
After reading the Prospectus the Application for Enrolment should be completed and returned.
The school will acknowledge the application for enrolment and arrangements for an interview or tour with the principal will be made. No cost is incurred by parents during the application.
A position may be made depending on the availability of places according to our Enrolment Policy. Should the case arise that applications exceed available places then the following priorities will be observed:
* Siblings of children already attending the school
* Children of staff members
* Students attending the ‘Little Vines’ Early Learning Centre
* The date of initial enrolment
Other placement will then be decided by taking into account such factors as length of time on the waiting list, or other special circumstances and may be decided at the discretion of the Principal and School Council.
