Enrolling at our school

Enrolment interview

At the enrolment interview, parents and students have the opportunity to discuss progress at their previous school, specific learning needs, extra-curricular involvement along with any individual assistance required for the student to reach their potential.

The administration team member will outline conditions of enrolment and requirements for students including:

  • subject selection

  • dress code

  • code of conduct for students

  • application to study

A signed enrolment form at the conclusion of the interview indicates student and parent agreement with the conditions of enrolment.

A number of forms should be completed prior to the interview, including:  enrolment form, student resource scheme participation agreement form and the media release agreement.  These forms can be downloaded from this webpage, or collected from the administration office, prior to the interview.

Parents or guardians wanting to enrol new students are requested to contact the school office on (07) 47267 666 during office hours (8.00 am - 4.00 pm) to arrange a suitable time for an enrolment interview with a member of the school administration team.
