Enrolment

By law, children must turn five by the 30th April of their first year of school.

An Application for Enrolment form obtained from the school, should  be completed and include birth certificate, immunisation certifcate and if applicable baptismal certificate. It may be necessary to show evidence of visa status. For children entering at a grade level other than prep, details of previous schooling must be provided.

Interviews with the Principal will follow receipt of the application.

First preference will be given to children of Catholic parents who are parishioners of  Our Lady’s and St John’s parish.

If numbers permit:

  • Children with brothers and sisters already enrolled
  • Children of Catholic parents resident outside the parish boundaries
  • Children of Christian families living within the parish boundary
  • Children of Christian families living outside the parish boundary
  • Children of non-Christian families living within the parish boundary
  • Children of non-Christian families living outside the parish boundary

Students of other Faiths will be considered for enrolment provided it does not result in the exclusion of Catholic students.

Following an interview, a letter of offer will be sent to the family.  On its return, the family will be provided with information regarding foundation orientation days, foundation parent information night, uniform ordering and beginning of the year information.

St John’s does not accept full fee paying overseas students.
