As with all ACT schools, children are generally enrolled in Kindergarten 2022 if they turn 5 before 30 April 2022. Some parents choose to keep their children at home for an extra year if the child was born close to the cut-off date and is perhaps not quite ready for full-time schooling.
When forming Kindergarten classes, the school works in liaison with teachers at the Holy Family Early Learning Centre so that the children will be placed with some friends and other children whom they know. At Semester 2 enrolment interviews, parents discuss any information they may have in placing their child into a class. Classes are not based on ability groups, but rather a balance of gender and age. We do not have a strict policy of placement for twins and are guided by parents' requests in this area.
Tuition Fees are set by the Archdiocesan Catholic Education Commission each year.
