St. John Vianney's Primary School Parkdale
Thank you for considering St. John Vianney’s Primary School for your child's education. When you enrol your child at SJV, you are enrolling your family into the life, learning and faith of the school community.
St. John Vianney’s Primary school provides a comprehensive curriculum in a supportive, caring environment where Every child - Every opportunity is fundamental to all that we do.
Enrolments for Prep commence in the year prior to your child starting primary school.
We invite you to contact our office for any enrolment queries on
Prep enrolments are open to all children who turn 5 years by 30th April of the year they commence school.
To enrol your child at SJV you will complete an enrolment application form, which is available online or a paper version which can be collected from the school office.
When submitting the enrolment application form please include the following documentation:
Baptism certificate (if applicable)
Australian Government/Medicare Australia Immunisation certificate
Visa information (if applicable)
Once the enrolment forms have been submitted, we contact you to organise time to meet us for an informal chat about your child.
Places are offered in May for the following year.
At St. John Vianney’s we aim to create an atmosphere in which children feel secure and confident to explore and develop their learning.
We begin by contacting the kindergartens for a visit to meet your child and discuss with the educators any needs and recommendations for your child.
We then invite the children to attend two orientation days in November/December.
We also have a WELCOME TO PREP information night towards the end of the year, where we discuss all the things you will need to know before school starts.
In January, we open the school for a Prep Playdate to meet other families and begin the connection process.
The Prep children attend school 4 days a week for the first month, having Wednesdays off to rest and recover from the busy life that is school! During one of those Wednesdays, we will ask you to book a 30 minute session for your child for a one on one interview with the teacher.
This is an exciting time and we look forward to sharing your child’s learning journey with you.
The uniform at SJV consists of both Summer and Winter versions. The children are expected to wear the correct school uniform at all times.
All uniform items are purchased onsite at our school through the uniform shop, run by parent volunteers.
Order forms are available on this page and can either be emailed or handed to our school office.
