Welcome to the Mentone Primary School community where we pride ourselves in the strength of our relationships and our ability to develop your child’s curiosity, learning ability and social and emotional wellbeing.


If you are interested in enrolment for your child into Foundation (Prep) 2024, please click HERE.


We are fortunate at Mentone Primary School to have a dedicated team of professional and high-quality teachers who work together to make your child’s learning experience positive and enjoyable.


Under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 (Vic):

  • Schooling is compulsory for students aged between 6 and 17 years unless an exemption from attendance has been granted. This applies to all schools including mainstream, specialist, and government English language schools or centres.
  • Every Victorian student has a legislated right to enrol at their designated neighbourhood school (section 2.2.13) and may be enrolled at another school subject to sufficient accommodation (section 2.2.14).

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.


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