We welcome new enrolments. Please enquire by phone or drop in and see us.
Children who are to be admitted to school must have their fifth birthday on or before April 30th of the year of admission.
On first enrolment of a child, a Full Birth Certificate must be produced as proof of date of birth. An immunisation certificate, received from the Immunisation Register, is also required to be presented on enrolment. These certificates are available from Municipal Health Officers attached to Local Councils.

In the year prior to starting school, Morwell Central will host information sessions and tours of our school for both parents and children. After enrolments have opened, children will have opportunities to participate in sessions at school run by teachers. These sessions are a great way for the teachers to meet and get to know the children as well as beginning to prepare children for school.
In December, the State-wide Transition day is held, and students are invited to attend a session with their new teacher and classmates. Information packs will be sent home to all enrolled students, containing important details about our school and things you can do at home to support your child to be ready to start school.
When the school year begins, Prep students attend school for the whole day, but have Wednesdays off for our Prep-Entry Assessments. Each child has timetabled interview with their teacher, where they complete tasks that provide teachers with valuable information about their current maths and literacy knowledge, which informs our teaching.
The year 6 to year 7 transition process at Morwell Central for our year 6 students begins when they are in grade 5. Our students are given a 'taste' of secondary school through the Awareness Day Program which is held every year in term 2, for our grade 5 & 6 students, with our local secondary school Kurnai College.
A Parent Information night is also held in term 2 outlining the transition process, application forms and the student support services that are offered through the school. Student welfare is a major focus at Morwell Central, ensuring all students have a successful transition from the primary school setting to secondary school. Our school welfare team organize and run two in-school student transition sessions that focus on the practicalities such as reading timetables, how to open and close a lock, to unpacking concerns and fears. Past students are invited to the sessions to answer questions from the students.
Extra transition (Kurnai College – Morwell Campus only) is arranged for any student requiring extra support beyond the set transition days arranged by the various secondary schools. The hub leader ensures all communication between the various secondary schools is forwarded on to parents via phone calls, the school newsletter, hub bulletin and leaflets. Home group teachers also liaise with each child's school of choice through the completion of student academic forms.
Uniforms are to be worn every day unless a uniform free day is specified. School policy also states that children must be in school uniform to participate in excursions outside of the school. School clothing and other items should be clearly labelled with your child's name.
Children are expected to wear the school uniform which consists of a mix and match combination of navy pants and paneled yellow and navy polos and jackets (pictured below). Uniforms may be ordered from the school's uniform shop.
It is school policy that during Term 1 and Term 4 children must wear a wide brim hat outside. In Term 2 and Term 3, if UV levels are high students will be asked to wear their hats. Preps and newly enrolled students are given a hat when they commence school. All other students can purchase a hat from the office.
