We are continuing Prep tours for 2023 in term 3, 2022.

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, Janet. 

If you have specific questions that you would like me to answer, then please just ask on the day or email me at janet.dipilla@education.vic.gov.au and I will do my best to answer them for you.  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 individually.


Tour dates and times

At the moment we are running small tour groups on Tuesday morning at 9:30am, each Tuesday . If you would like to be part of one of these tours, please email brunswick.east.ps@education.vic.gov.au to book a session that suits you or call 9387 3361.


Some general points about enrolment.

Our school zone is available on  findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria.

Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.

BEPS manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enroll at another school if there are available places.

If your child is a sibling of one of our current students, or you are in our enrolment zone follow the instructions below and send in your enrolment form.

If you are outside the zone, and you want to enroll your child at BEPS, please follow the instructions below. When you send in the enrolment form, attach a short note and tell us why you wish to enroll at BEPS. Please note, that we may not be able to offer students outside our zone a place at the school.

To enroll in Victorian government schools, you need to:

  • Provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate or passport.
  • Provide a copy of your child’s immunisation status certificate.

If your child has parents residing in different households, you may also wish to complete an Alternative Family Details form.

Our school’s child safety policies can be viewed here.


Starting Prep next year

Parents who wish for their children to start primary school next year should read this enrolment page carefully.  It is important to register your interest so that you are taken into account when planning for the new year. You can do that by filling in an enrolment form and sending it (hard copy) to Brunswick East Primary School, 195A Stewart Street Brunswick East, 3057. Alternatively, email  brunswick.east.ps@education.vic.gov.au

BEPS provides a comprehensive transition program for students and their families to help ease into the school experience. Transition this year will include:

  • parent information sessions,
  • onsite parent tours (whenever allowed), and
  • onsite activities and Classroom experiences for the new students

If you have not yet enrolled your child for 2023, please do so as soon as possible and we will start sending out individual acceptance letters, starting on Monday 29 August.
