Prep 2016

With the reputation of Blackburn Lake Primary continuing to grow, our school enrolments over the last five years have annually increased. With 50% of our families coming from outside of our “neighbourhood boundary,” School Council last year ratified a new Enrolment Policy to ensure our great school can remain so.


Last year enrolments for our Prep classes filled quickly, with some families missing out on securing an enrolment at the end of the year as they were out of our “neighbourhood zone”.


This year has once again started with a flurry of enquiries regarding Prep enrolments for 2016. School tours take place each Wednesday (at 9.30am by appointment),  and existing families with siblings commencing school in 2016 are advised to lodge their application forms at the school office as soon as possible – and by August 1st to ensure enrolment. If you know of any family or friends who may be interested in coming for a school tour, please encourage them to contact the school office.

Education Week

Education Week is an annual opportunity for state (primary and secondary) schools to showcase their programs. Whilst it is largely “business as usual” next week, we are holding daily activities to share our success with our school’s families and potential prep parents.


The feature of Education Week for Blackburn Lake Primary will again be our open night “treasure hunt” on Wednesday and we again invite you to visit our classrooms. Following this year’s state theme of ‘Crack The Code’ we invite mathematicians to come and test their skills.  


We are proud of our educational efforts and encourage you and your family to visit the school and celebrate our school’s successes:


Monday: Curriculum Day – student free day 

It is not only   the students in our school who learn. Teachers are “learning together @ Blackburn Lake Primary School” and involved   in assessment and reporting activities.


Tuesday: Arts Showcase (‘ArtWorks’ & Music) @   6:30pm – 8pm

Our ‘ArtWorks’   Show again opens before the Musical Showcase commences at 7:00pm. This night   features performances from our Level 1/2s and 3/4s, our ensembles   (StringStars and Marimbas), as well as instrumental items and a choir   performance.

Wednesday: Open night Treasure Hunt @ 6:30pm –   8pm

In addition to the   possibility of “dinner” from the Parents Association sausage sizzle (from 6pm   onwards), there are some prizes for the BLPS families who can crack the code   - completing their passport as they travel through our classrooms - including   the opportunity to purchase an ‘ArtWorks’ piece from the display in the DJC   foyer.


Thursday: Prep 2014 Information Night @ 7:00pm –   8pm

The session is   for new parents to the school in 2016 and will be hosted in the Library.   We will be discussing primary schooling,   our transition into prep, and the programs we run at Blackburn Lake Primary  School.

Friday: Whole School Assembly @ 2:45pm – 3:30pm

A highlight of   our week is acknowledging our Students of   the Week at our student-led assembly. We invite all visitors to our   week’s conclusion.
