Enrolment at South Yarra Primary School

South Yarra Primary School is a Victorian State Government Primary School located at 585-601 Punt Road, South Yarra.

South Yarra Primary, due to space limitations, has a designated and approved Department of Education and Training Neighbourhood Boundary zone which is extremely close to the school. No enrolments accepted outside zone.

Placement at the school cannot be guaranteed until DET have confirmed the 2019 school zone. We are expecting a change due to the opening of the new South Melbourne Park Primary School in 2019, located at Albert Park Lake, next door to MSAC.

By law, primary schools are required to request and record information on the immunisation status of students prior to enrolment. Parents or guardians must provide an immunisation status certificate to the school regardless of whether the child is or is not immunised.

From 28 February 2018 only an Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register can be accepted as proof of immunisation status on school entry.

Documents produced by GPs or other immunisation providers are no longer acceptable as school entry immunisation status certificates.
