Foundation (Prep) Enrolments
Victorian children are allowed to start school in Foundation (Prep) on the first day of first term as long as they turn 5 by April 30 that year. Application for enrolment are submitted in the year prior.
Application packs can be collected from the school office, and are available from the beginning of March.
Parents have an opportunity to come along to an Open Day (9.30 - 11.00 a.m.) or Open Evening (7.00 - 8.00 p.m.) session. These sessions provides an opportunity to hear from school leadership and learn more about our approach. Each session also includes a group tour around the school. Private, individual tours can also be arranged upon request.
Interviews with each family are held in April / May. Once all interviews are completed, the principal and Parish priest consider all applications and notify families of the outcome of their application (usually by around the middle of June).
Enrolments at other Year Levels
Expressions of interest are welcome for students in other year levels at any time. The process is similar to the Foundation enrolment - prospective applicants are welcome to collect an Application for Enrolment pack from the school office, and a tour with the principal can be arranged upon request.
Following the lodgement of an application, the principal will consider the information provided and be in touch with the family to indicate if the application will be proceeding or not. Acceptance of an application form does not indicate that a family will automatically move to the next step in the process. Some applications will proceed no further (e.g. families that are deemed to be located too distant from the school). If a year level is already at the maximum number the school has decided on, families may be offered the opportunity to go on a waiting list.
If the principal decides to proceed, an interview with the parents and the child will be arranged.
The principal and Parish priest will consider all interviewed applicants and notify families of the outcome of their application within a couple of weeks of the interview.
