Enrolments are accepted all year round, but the best time to enrol your child is at the beginning of the year (Term 1) – the year before your child is due to commence school.
Kindergarten Enrolment interviews are held in Term 2 the year before your child is to start school. You will be given an interview date and time when you submit your completed application to the school office. Written offers of placement will follow towards the end of Term 2.
For other grades enrolment interviews take place throughout the year when applications are received, providing there is an available position.
Years 1 – 6 enrolment interviews for the following year take place in Term 3 and Term 4. Written offers of placement will follow. If a position is offered to your child, they will also be invited to an orientation afternoon in Term 4.

The dignity of the human person is the foundation of all Catholic Social Teaching and inherent to the mission of our school. Essential to this is the creation and maintenance of a respectful, safe and supportive learning environment that promotes student wellbeing and enables school communities to engage an inclusive and diverse range of learners.
At St Paul's, we believe that all members of the community have the right to a learning and working environment free from intimidation, humiliation and harm. We all share a responsibility to create a culture of caring that will not tolerate bullying. We believe that bullying must be taken seriously and is not acceptable in any form. In witnessing Christian values we reject ideas, beliefs and behaviours, which marginalise or victimise people.
You can also find further anti-bullying, wellbeing and online safety resources at our Resources page.
