Dear Prospective Parents,
Thank you for taking the time to explore what our College has to offer your child! We are excited to have you and your family consider joining our YCP-12 College community, who continuously strive to provide quality learning experiences and individualised supports in a caring and nurturing environment.
Growing up in Yarrawonga myself, and attending both Yarrawonga Primary School and Secondary College, I feel incredibly privileged and proud to have re-joined the Yarrawonga College P-12 community again after having working in Principal Class Positions in both Wodonga and Cobram over the past 10 years.
Our College offers an exceptional range of opportunities, strong growth and academic results, and individualised levels of support for our students. We are committed to building positive relationships and working in partnership with our families to support each and every child and to give them every opportunity to flourish and to experience success both academically and socially.
We acknowledge how important choosing the right school for your little one can be, and we hope the information on our Website & Facebook pages provides many of the answers you need and a level of confidence about what Yarrawonga College can offer throughout your child’s schooling journey.
Please feel free to contact the school directly to arrange a meeting or a guided tour through our P-4 Campus. We also have extensive Prep Enrolment packs available to be collected from the front office and a great deal of information available via the links to the left.

P – 4 Campus Principal
Upon enrolling your child at Yarrawonga College P -12 you will be required to fill out the enrolment form and provide the school with important information about your child, including:
- evidence of your child’s date of birth (birth certificate, or, if they were not born in Australia, a passport or travel document such as a visa)
- Immunisation History Statement Note: In accordance with amendments to ‘No Jab No Play’ legislation, as of 28 February 2018 only the Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register is acceptable for the purposes of enrolling in a primary school in Victoria. Sighting of the stamped immunisation booklet or documents produced by GPs or other immunisation providers are not sufficient evidence to meet this requirement.
We would appreciate completed enrolments forms to be submitted to the school in early August and the supporting documents can be supplied at a later date.
This program run by a professionally trained education specialist is our eight week transition program, commencing in Term 4. To be eligible for this program you must return your School Readiness Enrolment Form no later than Friday 19 August. (along with your College Enrolment Form).
Following the implementation of the new Parents Payments Policy for the beginning of 2022, schools are unable to create charges for what was previously labelled ‘Curriculum Support Levy’.
Yarrawonga College P12 has historically only requested payment for what would be ‘Extra Curricular Activities’ within the new policy, and as a result the following documents have been developed for each year level at our school. These documents outline all requested contributions from parents, and in addition there is a one page overview of the new Department of Education Victoria’s Parent Payment Policy.
Students at YCP-12 enjoy all of the activities which include Cultural Activities (incursions), many and varied Excursions, along with a variety of Sporting Activities, and with families contributing to the costs of these activities, which are designed to enhance your child’s learning experience, we will be able to continue to provide these programs.
