Enrolment Process


Our schools provide a distinctly Catholic education community where your child will be known, respected and cared for and one which will provide them with an education that will lead them to experience life in all its fullness.

Each primary and secondary Catholic school manages their own enrolment. You can find Catholic schools, their locations and contact details on our School Directory. Once you have selected a Catholic school for your child, contact the school directly.

While you can apply to enrol your child in a Catholic school at any time of the year (pending places being available), there is a formal enrolment period which runs from around mid-March to the end of May each year. There is strong demand for places in many Catholic schools so it is important to make your application before the advertised closing dates. Catholic Schools Week, which is a state-wide celebration of Catholic education, also takes place during the formal enrolment period.

You and your child attend an enrolment interview before the enrolment is finalised. The documents you will need to provide at the interview include your child’s Birth Certificate, Baptismal Certificate and immunisation records. A passport, with documents validating your child’s current Visa status, will also be needed if you do not hold Australian citizenship. Secondary schools may also require primary school reports. The school will advise of any other relevant requirements.

School Fees

Each primary and secondary Catholic school manages their own fees process. 

School Fees are set at a Parish Level and parents are advised costs such as excursions, camps, extra curricular activities, technology levy, subject levies etc are additional to the set school fee amount. For any questions relating to school fees, please contact your school directly.
