On-time Year 7 Enrolments

Step 1 – Application

Closing date for applications is the last Friday of January in the year your daughter is in Year 4.  The application should also be accompanied by copies of the following documents as outlined in the application form:

  • Birth Certificate
  • A copy of the most recent school report
  • NAPLAN results
  • Baptismal, Confirmation & Eucharist certificates (if Catholic) or a letter from pastor or religious leader (if non-Catholic)
  • Specialist reports, education plans, and school learning support assessments
  • Visa documentation (if your daughter was not born in Australia)
  • Any relevant court orders

Enrolments will not be processed unless this documentation is complete.

Complete the online enrolment form.

Application fee

A non-refundable application fee of $250 is payable, on lodgment, to cover administration costs.

Closing date for Applications

A receipt of your application for enrolment will be provided in writing.

Step 2 – Interview

All offers of places in the College will be made subject to consideration of the information contained in the Enrolment Application Form and an  interview with a member of the College Leadership Team.  Interviews will take place in Term 1 of your daughter’s Year 4.  Parents will be contacted in writing to arrange a suitable interview time.

Step 3 – Offers of Placement

Offers of placement will be made in writing early in Term 1 of your daughter’s Year 4, with the acceptance date being late March.  On confirmation of enrolment, a holding deposit of $750 is payable to the College.  This deposit will not be refunded if you subsequently cancel the enrolment of your daughter prior to her commencement at the College.  The holding deposit will be retained by the College and will be refunded when all fees and charges have been paid upon the completion of Year 12 or earlier if the student leaves the College.

A further commitment deposit of $1000 will be payable by July in the year prior to your daughter commencing at the College.  The commitment fee will be credited to the Annual Fee for the first year of your daughter’s enrolment, but is otherwise non-refundable.

Step 4 – Parent Information Evening

A specific parent information evening is held in Term 4 of your daughter’s Year 6 prior to her commencement year.  On the evening, parents will receive a package with all the information required to start school, including uniforms and the procedures for student orientation day and the new school year.

Step 5 – Student Orientation Day

We hold Orientation Day in late November each year to allow incoming students the opportunity to meet other students, and share some activities to foster a sense of belonging and excitement for the year ahead.

Step 6 – Waiting List

Applications for enrolment lodged after the application close date will be placed on the waiting list in order of date of receipt, regardless of enrolment category.  Applicants on the waiting list are interviewed as places become available.  In the event that this occurs, parents will be contacted in writing to arrange a suitable interview time.

Applications for Other Entry Points

Applications for enrolment can be lodged at any time for entry to other than Year 7.  Enrolment is subject to an interview with the Principal and places being available.  A non-refundable application fee of $250 is payable, on lodgment of an application, to cover administration costs.  The application should also be accompanied by copies of the documents as outlined in the Enrolment Application.
