ENROLMENTS ARE NOW OPEN FOR 2024.
If your child is turning 5 before 30th April 2024, they are eligible for enrolment, and we encourage you to do so now.
We continue to aim to keep our Foundation classes below twenty in order to give our students the best possible start to their education. Therefore, it is important for us to know how many students will be enrolling at Tootgarook Primary School ASAP.
Early enrolment also ensures your child will be included in our 2024 transition program, Leap into Learning (times and dates to be announced in September).
Our current enrolment is 173 students from Foundation (Prep) to Year 6.
Tootgarook Primary School promotes the consistent use of Explicit Instruction in every classroom. Explicit instruction involves directly teaching students the content or skill to be learned, using clear and unambiguous language. Teacher modelling and guidance is followed by opportunities for practice. Student/teacher interaction is very high and student engagement is essential.
