Bardon State School is an ‘enrolment managed’ school. This means that students that reside within our catchment may enrol in our school. At times there may be opportunity for limited enrolments to be taken from outside the catchment.

Parents wishing to enrol their child at Bardon State School may do so from the 2nd week of Term 2 each year. Enrolments are processed in the order they are received for consideration to “out of catchment’ enrolments

Prep is a full time (five days per week) non-compulsory program. When enrolling, parents must provide verification of their child’s date of birth (Birth Certificate, Passport) and proof of residence.

The Prep year is a combination of formal and informal learning. The program is based on the Australian Curriculum and the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines for Social and Personal Learning, Active Learning Processes and Health and Physical Understanding.

The students learn using a combination of hands on concrete materials, ICT’s and structured learning activities.
