Flagstaff Hill Primary School maintains a strong sense of community through partnerships with our two neighbouring kindergartens. We also welcome students from many other kindergartens in our area. We believe that these partnerships play a large part in the effectiveness of our transition program. A positive transition from kindergarten to school is integral in establishing the path for a successful first year at school.
In South Australia:
A child who turns 5 years of age before 1 May can start primary school at the beginning of the year. A child who turns 5 years of age on or after 1 May can start primary school the next school year.
A child must be enrolled at a school by their sixth birthday. It's recommended a child who will turn 6 years of age during the school year start school on the first day of term 1 of that school year.
