Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. 

If you are interested in choosing Coowonga State School for your child, please call the office for an enrolment appointment with the Principal. We like to offer a full tour of our school and explain our approach to teaching and learning so you are able to see a whole picture of the way our wonderful learning community works.

We are supportive of all students and the small number of children allows us to individualise our approaches to best suit your child. During the enrolment process we like to meet your child and speak with you about your child's strengths, learning styles, social capabilities and your goals for them. This allows us to ensure we are able to provide the best support to your child from their very first day of school.

Coowonga State School welcomes all students. You do not have to live in the local area to attend our great school. 

Please bring the following with you to your enrolment appointment:

  • information about your child’s medical conditions, medications (if applicable) and doctor
  • details of your child's previous education and care providers.


We offer a full-time Prep program. Children must be 5 by 30th June in the year they enrol to participate. Check the table below to see when your child can start prep.
