Starting School


Starting School

To enrol your child, please visit the ACT Education website and fill out the enrolment form.

Welcome booklets

We have developed a booklet which contains information to help parents and students prepare for the start of school.

Uniforms

The uniform was developed with consideration regarding gender neutrality, comfort, ease of manufacture, ease of matching colour and distinctiveness from nearby schools.

We have worked with ethical uniform suppliers to select material and styles and Summer and winter uniform options are available including dresses, jackets, jumpers, hoodies, and long-sleeved shirts. These will also be accompanied by a selection of hats, head dresses and wraps.  Visit the uniform section for more details, price lists and how to order.

Stationery packs

COS have supplied our initial 2021 stationery packs.  If you are enrolling your child later in the 2021 school year, we’ve selected the list of items your child needs to start the year. These items can be sourced from most stationery supply stores. The list is a guide only, please check with your child's teacher regarding classroom resources if you have any questions. Resource lists by grade level can be found under the Notes tab on this website.
