​Welcome to Prep at Cannonvale State School. What an important date, our first day at school! Here we are ready to guide your child through this amazing year full of fantastic experiences, new friends, new teachers, all those things to learn….

Prep provides the foundation for your child's success at school by developing:

  • the knowledge, understanding and skills detailed in the Australian Curriculum for English, Mathematics, Science and History (Foundation Year)
  • a positive approach to learning
  • independence and confidence
  • creativity and problem-solving skills
  • physical abilities, including gross and fine motor skills.

Please have a look at our Prep Transition Handbook (PDF, 9.1 MB). Prep Open Day will be 22 July 2019.

To start Prep you child needs to be 5 years old by 30 June in the year they start. To determine when your child can commence their prep year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator.

The Education (General Provisions) Regulation 2006 enables principals to consider early entry to Prep for children who turn five years by 31 July.

Please refer to the Local Catchment area map for Cannonvale State School to check if your address is inside the boundaries.
