If you are not double vaccinated, please arrange for someone else to bring your child to our Orientation.

Our friendly executive and support staff will be there to greet you and escort your child to their allocated learning space.

Uniform orders will be available for collection near the sign in tables, once your child has been signed in. There will also be sample sizes on display to assist with any future online ordering. 

In addition, the P&C will be holding a Uniform Sale on site this Sunday November 28 from 10.00am to 1.00pm. Entry will be via the Bellevue Street gate, with sign-in using the QR code and proof of double vaccination also required. Physical distancing and mask wearing must be observed.

Enrolment Documents

We are in the process of reviewing our 2022 enrolments to ensure all paperwork complies with Departmental requirements. Maria de Caires, our School Administration Officer who looks after enrolments, will be in touch should any further documents be needed to support your child’s enrolment. Please assist by responding promptly. It is necessary for this to be completed before your child can attend the upcoming orientation sessions.

Uniform Orders

Uniform orders can be placed online through the Flexischools app. If you do not yet have an account with Flexischools, you will need to download the app and set one up. See how to do this here: https://www.flexischools.com.au/parents. Full details of the Cammeray Public School uniform, including a price list are listed within the Flexischools app. Whilst there are many options to choose from within the uniform range, the attached list may also provide some guidance on the key pieces to purchase initially.

Pre-ordered uniforms will be available for collection during our Kindergarten Orientation sessions in late November. Alternatively, sample uniforms will be on display during Kindergarten Orientation sessions to check sizing and can then be purchased online. If ordering after the Kindergarten Orientation sessions, uniforms will be made available for collection during Best Start sessions at the beginning of next year, Week 1, Term 1 2022. More information about the Best Start sessions, including specific session dates and times will be provided later in the year.

We look forward to reconnecting with you toward the end of November.

Kindergarten 2022 – Orientation Sessions

Whilst we await Department advice on the format for our orientation sessions, we can confirm that orientation will no longer take place at the school from October 26 - 28. Although many families have already booked a session on one of these dates, current restrictions prevent this going ahead, as originally scheduled. We will, however, be in touch shortly with new dates and plans for our updated orientation program. In the meantime, we would like to share our ‘Ready for School’ videos created by the current Kindergarten teaching team. In addition to the two videos we are sharing with you today, two further videos will be emailed to you each Tuesday (our school's ​communications day) to support your child with school readiness. These videos can also be found on our school website.
