If she was starting school there tomorrow (birthday in February and is 11) thanks!

Oh in NSW. Would it be year 6?

Yes, year 6 which is the final year of primary school.

I think five but some states are a little different. the dept of education has websites for every state and it will give a definite answer.

Year 6 in NSW.

Being February born, she would be slightly younger than most of her classmates though.

Definitely year 6 in NSW, although some people are keeping their kids back a year so they’re not the youngest in their class, so she could be a very old year 5.

She would usually be in Y6 but equally could be Y5. One of the good things about the Australian system, unlike the UK, is the fact that you can choose. For various reasons I don’t want to go into here my February born daughter started Kindy (NSW) a couple of weeks before she turned 6 which is statutory school age here. I loved the fact that we were offered a 2 or 3 day a week pre-school or Kindy place for her aged 5 so I had a choice.
