View our enrolment policy and procedures, and learn more about the application process and criteria for enrolment here.
Our Catholic schools welcome enrolment enquiries and applications all year round, however parents and carers seeking to enrol their child in Kindergarten or Year 7 should note that enrolments are taken during Term 1 in the year (or two years, in some of our secondary schools) before their child's starting year.
Your enrolment application should be submitted to your school or schools of choice by the end of Term 1.
Most schools interview families during Term 2 and offers of enrolment are made at the end of Term 2. Where there are insufficient places available, parents may elect to remain on a prioritised waiting list.
For more information on the enrolment procedures relevant to you, please contact your local Catholic school or schools of choice.
