2025 Prep Enrolment Applications



This year our school will use an online system for new enrolments in some Victorian Government Schools called VicStudents. All primary schools in Inner East and Outer East areas of the North East Victoria Region are using this online system. Schools that are not part of the online enrolment program in 2024 will continue to use paper-based application forms.

VicStudents will be available for parents who are applying to enrol their child in Prep. An application form can be completed on laptops, PC’s and mobile phones. The online system will also allow you to upload documented proof of residential address and medical documents.

VicStudents has been assessed by the Department of Education to a high degree of security in line with the Victorian Protective Data Security Standards and is compliant with ISO 27001, the leading international standard for information security. 

It is important to note that the placement policy is followed by all government schools. You can view the placement policy https://www2.education.vic.gov.au/pal/enrolment/guidance/placement-policy

Your chances of being offered a place in the schools you apply for are not advantaged or disadvantaged by using this system.

The link to apply for a place online at this school will be available on this site from the beginning of Term 2 (April 15).

A new statewide Prep enrolment timeline has been implemented by The Department of Education.

The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Prep at a Victorian government primary school, including Oakleigh South Primary School.

The new timeline will apply for children starting Prep in 2025. All government primary schools will follow the new timeline in 2024 to support Prep enrolments for the 2025 school year.

You can find information and resources about the new timeline, including factsheets, at: Enrolling in Prep. You can also download the ‘Foundation (Prep) Enrolment Information Pack for Parents/Carers for the 2025 school year’ from the Starting School webpage (available from 15 April 2024).

You will be able to apply to enrol your child in Foundation (Prep) 2024 at Oakleigh South Primary School from Monday, 15 April 2024.

Student Enrolment Guidelines

At the February, 2015 School Council Meeting, the issue of placing a restriction on Student Enrolments was discussed in great detail. The school had earlier received permission from the Department of Education to grant the Enrolment Restriction, due to the rapid increase in enrolments.


Proof of residence is required.

** The lease must be through a Registered Real Estate Agent. Private lease arrangements will not be accepted

School Council have implemented Student Enrolment Guidelines effective immediately.

In the first instance, Prep Enrolments will be capped at 125 (or 6 Classes).

Other Year level enrolments will also be granted according to criteria below.

  • All students who reside in the Designated Neighbourhood Boundary

Unfortunately, we are not currently able to offer placement to out of zone students unless part of our Prep intake.

The School will finalise enrolments at the end of July each calendar year. Parents will receive written confirmation shortly after. If places are still available, they will be offered based on residential proximity to the school.

Enrolments will only be accepted for the next Calendar Year.
