Gilston State School’s enrols students from Preparatory Year to Year Six according to the Enrolment Management Plan. Priority is given to students living within the catchment and those with siblings at school.

A child may be enrolled if he/she reaches the age of four years on or before 30 June in the year prior to admission.
To determine when you child can commence their preparatory year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator. Full details about enrolment in Queensland State Schools can be located on the Queensland Government website
Parents are encouraged to complete an application for enrolment in the year prior to intended start date. Applications for those out-of-catchment will be considered in order of receipt. Expression of interest for enrolment two years prior to intended start date are invited to assist us with planning. Details captured during this process will be used to communicate directly with parents about lead-in processes prior to school start, including invitations to lodge enrolment applications.  
Proof of date of birth is required for all enrolments. 
Classes are created to meet the recommended ratios of 25:1 in Prep to Year 3 and 28:1 in Years 4-6. The physical structure of buildings supports cooperative and/or individual teaching approaches. Our preference is for single year level roll classes however multi-age groups are created in response to enrolment needs.
To enrol your child, please contact the office staff on 5501 2333 or come to administration building.
Gilston proudly conducts the “Enrolling Families” project for families whose children will be starting Prep. This project has been locally designed and involves a series of information sessions, an orientation and some pre-prep experiences for children to ensure the transition to school is successful.
