Dear Brabham Primary School families,

We have compiled some Frequently Asked Questions and answers in an effort to assist you in forward planning for 2021.

If you have any further enquiries please feel free to CONTACT US or call in and see us at our office at Ellenbrook PS.

We will endeavour to keep all families updated as information comes to hand, and encourage you to follow us on Facebook for regular Brabham PS updates.

Warm regards

Enrolments

Thank you to those families who have returned all enrolment information and evidence. We really appreciate your cooperation.

We have received a number of queries in regards to the enrolment process and we hope that the following information will assist you. Your child’s enrolment is a two part process:

Part A - Application for Enrolment

Submitting an application for enrolment does not guarantee you will receive a place at the school.

Part B - Enrolment Form

If your application is accepted by the school you will be provided with an Enrolment Form.

Please note: A student enrolment is finalised when the school accepts Part B and receives all of the evidence that supports an enrolment process.

* Please either return Part B to our temporary office (Monday to Friday 8am to 3:30pm) or return mail C/o Ellenbrook Primary School, 65 Fortescue Place Ellenbrook WA 6069 by Friday 25th September 2020.

Uniforms

Our uniforms are currently on order and due to arrive in December of 2020.

Tudor Uniforms will have an online ordering system, a shop at our school once a week, as well as the opportunity to visit their showroom in Wangara, in December and January, to have fittings and purchase uniforms before school starts next year. https://tudorschooluniforms.com.au/
