Enrolment Information

Our school has a systemic approach to enrolment based on pre-set criteria defined by the Catholic Schools Office and used by all schools in the Diocese of Broken Bay.

School Enrolment Policy

This is based on the Diocesan Enrolment Policy.

Orientation of New Students

Enrolment of Kindergarten students begins in May. Individual parents and students attend an Enrolment meeting with the Principal and Special Needs staff for screening and assessment of specific needs. Where appropriate, pre-schools are contacted. In the case of children with specific needs outside agencies are contacted. An orientation morning is held in Term 4 for all new students.

Children Enrolling during the School Year

Children are enrolled throughout the year for all classes K-6. Appointments are made with the Principal. The Principal, child and parents meet and an on-site tour is conducted.

Teaching/ Learning Groups

Children are grouped in parallel classes. Each year class compositions are changed to meet the needs of individual children and to assist in developing socialisation skills of children. Attention is given to a balance of gender, academic ability and social needs.

Specialist teachers are employed in the areas of Music, Physical Education and Library. Children are given the opportunity to develop specific talents and skills through membership of the school orchestra, the school choir, and representative sporting teams. All students participate in a Public Speaking program in Term 2. Year 6 compete in a public speaking competition with other schools at the Cluster level.
