2025 Foundation Enrolments

Please complete the ‘2025 Foundation Pre-Enrolment Enquiry Form’ above if you would like to express interest in enrolling your child in Foundation for 2025.

Foundation enrolments are moving to a new online system for 2025. Parents who have completed this form will be directed to the VicStudents Portal to create an account and submit a Placement Request with supporting evidence (i.e. birth certificate, immunisation record & proof of address). Following completion of the Placement Request form in the VicStudents Portal, placement offers will be sent out from Monday 29th July. Please use VicStudents Portal Link below to complete a placement request.

Based on your responses, we may contact you for a pre-enrolment meeting to support our planning for 2025. If you are enrolling multiple students in Foundation/Prep for 2025, please fill out a separate form for each child.

The Department of Education has released an updated statewide Foundation (Prep) enrolment timeline for the 2025 school year.

The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Pakenham Hills Primary School.

All government primary schools will follow the timeline in 2024 to support Foundation (Prep) enrolments for the 2025 school year.
