POLICIES AND DOCUMENTS
It is generally desirable for schools to adopt a cut-off enrolment date whereby children commencing in Kindergarten should be five (5) years of age. In accordance with guidelines set by the Catholic Education Office Canberra, a child must turn 5 years of age by 30 April of the year of enrolment.
Early Age Enrolments
The Principal has the discretion to process an early age enrolment (Primary or accelerated Secondary school entry) if special circumstances exist.
Parents must be informed that the school will assess the child's readiness and learning after consultation with the Learning Support Religious Education and Curriculum Services Senior Officer. For individual cases (primary and secondary school entry) where it is believed that the readiness of a child would warrant his or her enrolment at an early age, the Principal must consult with the Coordinator of Learning Support Religious Education and Curriculum Services for an individual assessment of the child's readiness and learning needs. Before agreeing to the early enrolment of the child the Principal must seek written approval from the Director.
Enrolment Policy for Students with Disability and Additional Needs
Students with disabilities are enrolled at the school according to the guidelines and procedures outlined in the CEO Learning Support Manual. All known information about your child regarding physical, medical or learning needs must be disclosed at the time of application. Please contact the school on 02 6944 1085 or email the school for more information.
