Enrolments are accepted from Year 1 to Year 8 (5 – 13 years of age).
Students whose families have an established religious connection with the Catholic Character of the school, in other words, Catholic themselves, will be given a preferential place on the list of applicants for enrolment.
All students being considered for enrolment at St Joseph’s School must see our Parish Priest who solely determines the eligibility for preference / non-preference of enrolment using nationally set criteria.
If you would like your child to be placed on the Non-Preference ( Non Catholic) waiting list, please ring our School office.
The Ministry of Education allows us to enrol up to 5% non preference students (non Catholic) at any one time. Unfortunately this equates to only 13 students.
At the present time our non-preference role is closed but this can change!
Arrange to see the Principal to discuss your child's needs and to hear what the school has to offer.
Arrange to see the Parish Priest of Holy Name Parish who will discuss Preference and Non Preference of enrolment with you. if Catholic, please bring a copy of your child's Baptism Certificate to this meeting. Preference Forms known as 'Parent and Proprietos Consent Forms' are held by the Priest and must be signed by the Parish Priest.
No placement can be held or enrolment confirmed until the school receives the parent and Proprietor Consent Form commonly known as the 'Preference' Form.
Bring the Parent and Proprietor Consent Form (and for 5 year old New Entrant children his/her Birth and Immunisation certificate) to the school office where enrolment procedures can be completed. Also any immigration papers that may be necessary.
