Children are entitled to start school the day of their fifth birthday.

Enrolment Procedures

  1. Arrange to see the Principal to discuss your child's needs and to hear what the school has to offer.
  2. If Catholic, please bring a copy of your child's Baptism Certificate to this meeting. Preference Forms known as Parent and Proprietor Consent Forms must be signed by the Parish Priest of the parish to which the family belongs. The Parish Priest of St Mary's will counter sign the form if you are moving from another parish.
  3. Bring the Parent and Proprietor Consent Form (and for 5 year old New Entrant children his/her Birth And Immunisation Certificates) to the school office where enrolment procedures can be completed. No placement can be held or enrolment confirmed until the school receives the Parent and Proprietor Consent Form commonly known as a "Preference" form.

Waiting List

There is a waiting list for Non Preference pupils which is updated regularly. For further assistance please contact the school Principal.


It is advised that you allow for pre-visits to our school so that your child may become familiar with the class and routines before starting. These visits are usually arranged with the Room 1 teacher. Please phone to make some times for these visits about 2-3 weeks prior to your child's start date.
