Admission Policy

Foundation Intake


Waikerie Lutheran Primary School encourages parents to take advantage of our two Foundation intakes annually, one at the beginning of each semester.  By taking enrolments of children twice annually, the children will have access to a play based focus of learning in a formal school setting.

Children who turn 5 before the 30th April will begin school at the start of the school year.  Children who turn 5 before the 31st October will begin at the start of Semester Two.  Discretion with these dates will rest with the principal, dependent on the maturity level of the child. 

Having two intakes a year will enable greater stability within the classroom.This process allows the class to progress with their learning without the interruption of repeating the same induction process mid-semester.  Greater progress can therefore be made by children throughout the year.



Waikerie Lutheran Primary School is currently accepting enrolments for this and subsequent years.

Waikerie Lutheran Primary School is a mission school of the Lutheran Church of Australia. The school endeavours to provide an opportunity for a Christian education to those families in the Waikerie area who desire such for their children regardless of ethnic origin, gender, religion, ability or disability provided that families follow the enrolment process which includes agreeing to support the policies of the school.
