Meeting with the Principal
Once we have received your enrolment forms and documentation we shall arrange an interview for you and your child to meet with the school principal. 

Pre-school visits
We encourage two pre-school visits before a child begins school.   Please contact the school to confirm a suitable time.

Attendance dues
School attendance dues are required to be paid to the parish office. They are not payable to the school.The parish secretary  will send out invoices at the beginning of each year.  You are welcome to set up automatic payments to cover these. This money is used by the diocese to fund building and capital works in schools.
The school is open to all students from new entrant to year 8, with a connection to a Catholic parish community.  A preference form, signed by the parish priest, must be received by the school for each child wishing to enrol.  Appointments with the parish priest can be made by contacting the parish secretary on 338-8395.

We encourage parents to pre-enrol their child as early as possible, preferably by the age of 4.  This includes younger siblings of students already at the school.
