KPSS has an annual intake of students, enrolment takes place each Summer before the end of term. Children need to be 5 years of age and in Year 1 at mainstream school, to start at KPSS.
Currently there are 3 feeder classes into the school (note this changes on a yearly basis depending on the number of staff):
P1: 5 year old students
P+: 7 to 8 year old students
S1: 9 year old students and above
All three classes a start from the basics/beginning of Punjabi. If your child has been attending another Punjabi school and has previous skills in speaking/writing/reading Punjabi, please notify KPSS when registering your child via the process outlined below. Where possible, children can sit short entrance tests to assess their ability and if they reach the required level, they can be entered into an existing class (ie. they do not need to enter the school via the three feeder classes).
At KPSS we also run an adult class to help our community learn Punjabi from it’s foundation or to refresh Punjabi skills that have not been used for some time. The class runs at the same time as the children’s: 9.45am to 1.30pm.
