Immunisation Program

When enrolling a child in primary school, parents must provide the child’s Immunisation Status Certificate. This shows whether a child has been immunised against diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, whooping cough and haemophilus influenza type B.

It is compulsory to present a School Entry Immunisation Certificate when enrolling your child in primary school in Victoria. The following are two options available to obtaining this before enrolling your child at school;

*      Parents will automatically receive a history statement from the  Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) after your child has completed the 4 year old vaccine schedule and has completed all childhood immunisations required.  On the bottom of the page it should state: “This child has received all vaccines required by 5 years of age”.  Provided this statement appears it will be accepted as a school entry immunisation certificate in Victoria.

*      Parents whose child’s immunisation records are incomplete, missing or your child has never been vaccinated can contact their local council immunisation service (i.e. Corio Community Centre) who will be able to assist you in obtaining a school entry immunisation certificate.

Children who are not immunised can still attend school. If an outbreak of an infectious disease occurs at the school they will be sent home until the danger has passed.

We welcome all enquiries and appointments may be made at any time to tour the school with the Principal.

 

Starting School

When do I need to enrol my child?
In order to ensure a place for your child at Rollins Primary School, the enrolment form needs to be completed and given to the school office as early as possible during the preceding year. To guarantee our entitlement of teachers and allow the school to plan for the following year, all enrolments should be received by 1st August.

What do I need to bring to the school to enrol my child?

  • A completed enrolment form and, if applicable, medication form.
  • Your child’s birth certificate
  • An immunisation certificate from the Australian Immunisation Registry.

How do I know if my child is eligible to commence school?
To be eligible for admission to a primary school, a child must be a least five years of age by 30th April of the year in which admission is sought. Only Australian citizens or students with the designated visas are eligible for admission. An overseas student cannot be enrolled until he/she resides in Australia.
