Enrolment applications are accepted at any time. However, the usual timeframe is from February to May of the year before your child starts in Foundation.

Towards the end of April, families and their children will be invited to interview with the Principal or Deputy Principal.

First-round offers are sent to families at the beginning of May, and subsequent rounds are offered when and if applicable.

During Term Three, the St Mary’s staff, including Foundation teachers, visit enrolled children at their Kindergartens to commence the transition process.

Early in Term Four, the children are invited to participate in four transition sessions onsite, focusing on various games and activities based on English, Mathematics, STEM and Physical Education.

In late November, a Parent Information Night is held, which often includes a guest speaker and focuses on making the transition to school a successful, positive experience for both students and parents.
