Submission of Applications

The closing date for applications for Year 7 2020 is Friday 3rd May 2019. However, we do encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible as this does provide a good indication of expected numbers and assists with planning.

Applications should include all supporting documentation as outlined on page 10 of the Application Form (incl. copy of Birth Certificate, copy of Year 5 Report and NAPLAN results, copies of holy sacrament certificates (where these have been made), and a copy of your child's immunisation record). An application fee of $80.00 is due on submission.

Enrolment Interviews - Year 7 2020

Parents and students will be invited to attend an enrolment interview with one of the leaders of the college in the week commencing Monday 13th May.  A limited number of evening appointments will be available. These will be 20 minute interviews which will provide the opportunity for you to ask any questions you or your daughter may have concerning the college, curriculum, pastoral care etc. Parents should ensure that they bring the original of their daughter's birth certificate to these interviews for sighting and confirmation.

First Round Offers

First round offers are due to be mailed out in the first week of June 2019.

Once an offer of enrolment has been made we ask that you complete the Acceptance Form and submit this with a $250.00 (non-refundable) deposit by the date given to secure your daughter's place at the College for 2020.

If unsuccessful in the first round, applications are waitlisted and offers made as places become available or where first round offers have not been accepted.

Withdrawal of Application

You are requested to advise us at any time through the enrolment process if you are withdrawing your application. We thank you for this courtesy which assists with our administration of applicants and planning, and does impact any who may be waitlisted.

Parent Meeting

A parent meeting will be held on the Thursday 21st November 2019 for all parents of incoming Year 7 girls, including those who have older daughters already at the school. We ask that you keep this date free as the event has become a valuable information forum where you have the opportunity to meet your daughter's Pastoral Teacher and other key members of the teaching and pastoral staff. A lot of information is presented and packs provided, hence one or both parents are encouraged to attend.

More to Come

Toward the end of the year as more information regarding uniform fittings, texts and other requirements becomes available we will continue to notify and advise those who have accepted a place in Year 7 2020.
