When considering ENPS for your child’s primary education, we encourage you and your child to have a tour of our school and classrooms. Our Principal and Assistant Principals are available to conduct a tour with you. To book a tour, please contact the school’s office.
During lockdown in 2020, we created a Virtual Open Day video, which you can still watch below.
We have a link to our Frequently Asked Questions, for any questions you might have. If you still have further questions after that, you can either call us on (03) 9379 3979, or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you in person one day soon!
