Choosing a primary school that will nurture your child's social, emotional and academic growth is an important and exciting decision. At Greenhills, we work hard to ensure every child makes a successful transition into our school community.
Prep at Greenhills
At Greenhills, we aim to create a happy and safe environment where your child will be encouraged and supported to become an active learner and curious about the world around them.
We welcome the opportunity to tell you more about our school, show you around and provide you with all the information you need to help you make the right choice for your child and your family.
We welcome the opportunity to show you what Greenhills has to offer you and your child, and we extend an invitation to all parents considering a quality educational environment for their children to contact the school to arrange a personalised school tour.
During these tours, you will have the opportunity to visit our classrooms to get a feel
for our school and see our school in action. You will also meet our school principal,
James Penson, and will be able to ask any questions you may have about our school.
School tours are usually held each Tuesday at 9:30am (In Terms 1,2 & 3) or by appointment. We also have evening sessions on Tuesday 19th March and Tuesday 23rd April 2024 (6:15pm - 7:15pm). Please e-mail or ring the school to book a tour or to make a private appointment with the school principal.
Eligibility and Enrolment
Greenhills has an enrolment cut-off of approximately 500 students. While enrolment numbers vary from year to year, demand for enrolments at Greenhills has consistently exceeded capacity.
Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones for 2020 onwards.
Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address. If you are not in our zone we'll do our best to accommodate your family.
The Department provides guidance through the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.
