Enrolment enquiries and applications are welcome at any time throughout the year. Applications for Prep enrolments are accepted up to two years prior to starting and close at the beginning of the year prior to the intended enrolment. Prep interviews are then conducted in Term 1 of the year preceding and confirmation of enrolment is provided by the end of Term 2. Applications for Years 1-6 are welcome throughout the year.

|Step 1:||Submit a Confidential Online Application for Enrolment
Provide other documents as listed on the Parent Checklist ie Birth Certificate and Baptismal Certificate if applicable for each child. For Year 1 – 6 Enrolments include a copy of the most recent school report. All new families to St Gerard Majella School are required to pay a non-refundable Application Fee of $30 at the time of lodgement.
|Step 2:||The School responds
The School will acknowledge receipt of your application and advise you of anything else that is required to assist in considering the application.
|Step 3:||An interview is arranged
All enrolment applicants to St Gerard Majella School must have an enrolment interview with the Principal or Assistant Principal. Students and parents are required to attend the interview. An Application for Enrolment Form must be completed by the parents or the legal guardians and all other forms as required are to be submitted prior to the interview.
|Step 4:||Being Offered and Accepting a place
If your application is successful, the Principal will make you an offer of enrolment. Parents accept the offer by completing a ‘Confirmation of Enrolment Form’ and all required documentation.
A $100 non-refundable acceptance fee deposit is required to hold your child’s position. This amount will then be deducted from your first term fees.
Enrolment refers to the formal agreement by the Principal on behalf of the school community to place a student’s name on the school’s enrolment register, thereby conferring on that student and his/her family all the rights and responsibilities that normally pertain to any enrolment.
An application for enrolment is simply that. Acceptance by the school of an application does not mean that an offer of enrolment will automatically follow.
Once a student has been enrolled, any consideration of enrolment cancellation is subject to the considerations and regulations applying to suspension and exclusion as outlined by Catholic Education Services.
