The procedure for enrolling a child at St Mary’s Catholic School is as follows:
- Contact the school to receive an enrolment package and tour of the school.
- Complete and return the application form for enrolment to the school office, with all required documents.
- Arrange a time for a meeting to confirm your enrolment.
Kindergarten enrolments are generally called for during term 3. Any child enrolling in Kindergarten is to be 5 years old by 30 March of their Kindergarten year.
Applications for enrolment in other years should be accompanied by the latest school report from the current school and any other relevant personal and academic information.
Enrolment forms and the school prospectus are available upon request at the school office.
The Diocese of Bathurst sets the school fee structure. There is a School Fee and the Diocesan Capital Works Levy. School fees assist the school with daily running costs, including texts and resources, photocopying, ancillary staff salaries, grounds and maintenance and cleaning. A discount is available when more than one child is enrolled in the school. Fee support is available through a fee payment plan or school bursary for families experiencing financial hardship.
All parents and carers enrolling children at St Mary’s Catholic School undertake to pay the specified school fees and to contribute where possible in some way to school activities.
