We are enrolling students for 2022 now

School tours

If you are interested in enrolling your child at BEPS, it is best to come for a tour and a chat with the Principal. However, we are not able to run any tours at the moment because of the current COVID restrictions. So please come along to a Q&A session to at least get some answers to the questions you have.

We could try to put together a presentation, or virtual tour, but to be honest, that will only show you how good my presentation skills are, and it will not have any children in it.

Not really a true representation of what we have to offer your child and your family.

Hence, we are running a series of Q&A sessions online. We know that they are not as good but they do offer you the opportunity to ask any question that you have and I do my best to answer them.

If you have specific questions that you would like me to answer, then please email me at janet.dipilla@education.vic.gov.au and I will do my best to answer them for you during the session.  Or, if you have questions that you think are specific to you and your child – send me an email and I will arrange a time to talk with you.

These sessions are not my preferred style, as  I prefer to meet you in person, but they will give us a chance to meet and start that conversation about enrolment at BEPS

If none of these times suit you, please ring the office on 9387 3361, or email brunswick.east.ps@education.vic.gov.au for assistance.

Sessions dates and times

I will put up some more times for the coming weeks, when, hopefully, I have some idea of what might be possible for this term. if you have a time that you would really like a tour, please send me an email and I will do my best to make that time work.
