Enrolment and Information

New Enrolments

For Enrolment enquiries please contact the school office.   We have a Preference of Enrolment Scheme whereby 95% of children must have a connection to the Catholic community.   The Preference Certificate will need to be signed by one of our Priests in the Parish.   All Enrolment papers must be completed and returned to the School Office, together with your child's Birth Certificate and Immunisation Certificate, before your child can be enrolled to start school.

Each week we run a "Little Learners: programme.  This is a weekly Literacy Programme to help prepare pre-school children and parents for school.   See the attached notice for more detail.   You will receive a letter advising when your child can start this programme, and an enrolment form.

It is an opportunity for your child to get to know their Classroom Teacher and the students of the New Entrant classroom.  Please contact the School Office so that we are prepared and expecting you.
