Enrolment Procedure

St Teresa's School views education as a partnership between parents, staff and students with the aim to promote responsible learners supported by home and school.

Parents who wish to enrol their children at St Teresa's School will be expected to foster a Christian attitude through practice and example and support the Catholic ethos and traditions of the school.

Parents and students will also be expected to support the policies and practices in matters such as behaviour, consequences, uniform, sporting activities and events which are considered compulsory.

Currently St Teresa's School does not have a Term Three intake. There is only one intake at the beginning of Term One each year.
 

Children who turn five before May 1st will be admitted into Reception on the first day of Term One in that year. Those children who turn five on or after May 1st will start school on the first day of Term One of the following year.

STUDENT ENROLMENT PROCEDURE

Contact the school on (08) 8397 6400, by email at info@stteresa.catholic.edu.au or visit the school in person to make an enquiry about enrolment. Alternatively you may lodge a Registration of Interest here.

Following the enquiry, parents/caregivers are sent:

Upon receipt of Application for Enrolment form and Application Fee, the school forwards:

The Enrolment Registrar will contact parents or caregivers inviting them and their child for an enrolment interview.

Two years prior to starting, siblings of students already attending St Teresa's School and Catholic children who live in the parish will be interviewed in Term Two of that year as well as other enrolments, if places permit. Otherwise interviews for all other enrolments will follow.

During the interview parents are given information about the school, have their questions answered and have a tour of the school. This also enables the Principal to meet the child.

If a position is available the following is sent to the parents:

• Offer of Enrolment letter
• Copy of the signed Application for Enrolment form which details the terms and conditions of enrolment.
• Acceptance of Offer form

If parents wish to accept this enrolment offer, then they must sign the Acceptance of Offer form and return it to the school with a payment of $100 to secure the position. The $100 is deducted from the school fees when the child starts school.

Upon receipt of Acceptance of Offer form the school forwards:

• Acknowledgement of Acceptance letter

If a position at the time is not available, the school will send a Non-acceptance of Enrolment letter and if requested the enrolment will be placed on a waiting list.
