Pretty sure you are right - half was paid to those getting FTB A last year and this is the other half. To get this one the child must be starting school, must have had the 4yo check and you need to tell them. That's my understanding but I'm no expert - I just looked far enough to find out that we miss out.
The 4yo check has nothing to do with the schoolkids bonus, It's only required to be reported by those receiving an income support payment (parenting payment, newstart, DSP etc), if it's not done or reported, the FTB A supplement at the end of that financial year is withheld until the check has been done.
