|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.
At St Gerard Majella you are not required to pay an enrolment deposit to hold your child’s position.
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.
