Enrolling at '545' from another school

If you are have a child transferring to '545' from another school you need to:

  • Inform the school that your child is currently attending that you are planning to transfer your child to the Sale Primary School No 545. (This will enable the school to put together the child's student file and possible works samples, as well as transfer details. Doing this eliminates the need to provide proof of birth and immunisation details, that were required when the child first commenced school in Australia.)

  • Contact '545' for an enrolment pack & complete enrolment form and return it back to the school.


Kindergarten to Prep Year Transition

Towards the end of the kindergarten year your child will be invited to attend orientation sessions with other kindergarten children who will be starting the following year.

Year 6 - 7 Transition

During term two each year the secondary schools in the Sale area usually arrange for the Year 7 coordinators, accompanied by two year seven students, ( who are ex- students from 545) to visit our school to talk to the year 5 & 6 students about the programs offered at their schools.

The local secondary schools conduct information Nights, Open Days during the early part of term 2 each year.

In early May the families of Year 6 students are provided with a Gippsland Region - Student Placement Form. This form is to be returned to the primary school by the end of term two indicating the parents' choice of secondary school for their child for the following school year.

The various secondary schools also provide opportunities for students to sit exams for a range of programs throughout the year:

During November each year Sale College, Catholic College Sale and Gippsland Grammar all conduct orientation programs for their prospective Year 7 students. These range from one to three days duration, depending on the secondary school.

Sale Primary School has a close association with the RAAF Base East Sale and as such has a number of students from Defence Force families
