What to do if you have just arrived in Australia or moved to North Melbourne? 

Students who have been in Australia for less than 18 months (six months for Years 1 to 6), and who are not Australian citizens, have the opportunity to attend an English Language School.  We can arrange for an English Language Assessment to determine if they require additional support for their language development.  If following an assessment it is determined that a child will significantly benefit from supportive English language schooling, when a placement becomes available, families will be directed to an English Language School for one or two terms before returning to North Melbourne Primary School.  These are local primary schools following the Victorian curriculum with a focus on students where English is an additional language. 

Further information can be found at Western English Language School  https://www.esl-wels.vic.edu.au/  or Collingwood English Language School http://www.collingwoodels.vic.edu.au.  These assessments can be arranged by North Melbourne Primary School.

What happens next?

Once you have completed the Enrolment Application form and have attached copies of all supporting documents, please post or deliver hard copies to North Melbourne Primary School for checking and processing by Student Administration.

Receipt acknowledgement of the enrolment form and accompanying documents will be confirmed by e-mail.
