ENROLMENT POLICY

 

Guardian Angels Catholic Primary School is a Parish School. Consequently, first preference is given to the baptised Catholics who live within the parish and whose parents have a commitment to the faith. 

The following processes will normally occur:

Parents can access and complete the Online Enrolment Form (see link in 'Application for Enrolments' page). On receipt of the completed Enrolment Form, together with an enrolment fee of $70, the school will contact parents via email. Interviews are conducted along the same lines as the Criteria of Acceptance.

Criteria order of interviews:

  1. Siblings
  2. Catholics in the Parish
  3. Catholics Outside the Parish
  4. Non Catholic

    Although the pupils in the school will be predominantly Catholic, there is some provision for pupils of other faiths to attend Guardian Angels. The current enrolment of the school is in excess of 801 pupils from Prep to Year 6.

    Prep Enrolments
    Prep is now a compulsory year of schooling for children. For a child to be eligible they must turn five by 30 June of the year they commence Prep. Parents know their children and their readiness for Prep better than anyone. If there is any doubt about a child's readiness for Prep, parents are urged to speak to their child's pre-prep teacher/s and with each other to make a considered decision about enrolment.
