Interviews will take place from Term 3 for Years 1-13 and six months prior to an applicant turning 5 years of age, subject to space availability and enrolment criteria. You will be contacted by phone to arrange a date and time. You may contact the Enrolments Administrator for an update on your child’s application.

Once the Application Form has been processed and checked against our Enrolment Criteria, you will be contacted in due course for an interview subject to space availability. At the interview your child will complete a few simple activities and you will have the opportunity to ask any further questions. After the interview, you will be notified by mail as to whether your child has been accepted. At any stage of the process we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

It is not necessary to re-apply every year. Once an application has been lodged, the child’s name remains on our waiting list and the list rolls over from year to year until such time as a vacancy arises or you request their name be withdrawn from the waiting list. It is helpful to supply us with copies of subsequent school reports as you receive them and to keep us informed of any changes to your contact details.
