Enrolling for prep at Currumbin State School is an important and exciting process.  Here are three simple steps to follow:

Step 1

Check the prep ready reckoner calculator

You can use the prep ready reckoner calculator to determine when your child can commence their prep year.

Step 2

Check the catchment area

Currumbin SS has an enrolment management plan that guarantees enrolment to students within our designated catchment area. Families applying to enrol can check their residential address at Queensland Schools catchment maps.

Where there is spare capacity, students from outside of the catchment area can be considered. Please contact the office to be added to our out of catchment waiting list. Enrolment is guaranteed to siblings of our current students.

Step 3

Attend the Enrolment Information Sessions

Please take note of the dates and sessions below.  It is strongly advisable that you attend all sessions listed below.
