Processing the Enrolment Form | Enrolment Interview
Once the application is received, you will be contacted regarding an enrolment interview. The interview is an important step in your son’s application. The interview is with Principal (or Deputy Principal in his absence) and is an important time to ask any necessary questions. Parent partnership is an important aspect of our school and we expect the presence of both parents at this interview. Parents and students are expected to demonstrate a willingness and ability to support the Catholic Character of the College.

PREFERENCE OF ENROLMENT
The College, in its Integration Agreement with the Government, has two categories of enrolment:
Preference enrolment is given to those students whose parents have established a particular or general religious connection with the Special Character of the College. The Preference Certificate is enclosed in this pack or available from any Catholic Priest of the parishes that the College serves.
A non-preference enrolment may be granted to those who cannot produce a Preference Certificate. The College has a limited number places for non-preference students. Non-preference places are allocated at the discretion of the Principal.
