Last updated 6:50 AM on 9 November 2011

Our 2012 Kindergarten Orientation program started last week with an informal picnic in the playground, giving parents and children the opportunity to familiarise themselves with Mermbula Public School.


This week, we invite you to attend an information session on Thursday, November 10, at 9.20 am in the school hall, whilst your new Kindergarten child is having fun in the Kindergarten classrooms with the teachers. To assist with a punctual 9.20 am start, could you please arrive at 9.10 am so that your child can be settled into the Kindergarten classrooms. As the presence of younger children can be distracting, we would appreciate your assistance by having them minded privately for this session.


Mrs Michelle Hulme (Principal) and Ms Fiona Hosken (Early Stage 1 Leader) will be presenting the first part of this information session about Merimbula Public School and preparing your child for school.  During the second part, our School Counsellor Marion Fraser, Home School Liaison Officer Phil Kellaway together with representatives from the Canteen, P & C and Deanes Bus Lines will outline their services. 


New enrolment procedures require parents to supply the following documentation prior to children starting school. It would be much appreciated if you could supply the following documents to the school office as soon as possible.


Please note your child's enrolment will not be completed until ALL of these documents are supplied.


  • Completed "Application to Enrol in a NSW Government School" (Available from the office)
  • Your child's birth certificate.  We MUST have a copy of your child's birth certificate before they can start school
  • Proof of address (e.g. rates notice or electricity account)
  • Court orders if applicable.
  • An Immunisation History Statement – available from Medicare


Further Kindergarten Orientation sessions will be held on Thursday, November 17 from 9.15 am to 10.45 am. On Thursday, November 24, your child may come from 9.15 am to 11.45 am and enjoy having recess with new friends in the playground.


Please feel free to contact the school on 64951266 if you have any questions.
