The following documentation is required at time of application:
The BCE Public Website provides information which may be useful in assisting parents with questions about supplying court orders and/or specific instructions regarding contact arrangements - FAQs Family Law and Student Caring Arrangements.
Enrolment at the school is subject to an interview with a member of the School Leadership Team and the availability of vacancies at the school.
Decisions regarding enrolment take into account the number of vacancies, the needs of students, enrolment applications at other local Catholic schools and any exceptional circumstances.
Early or delayed entry to Prep are options which may be considered in specific circumstances and where it is in a child's best educational interests.
Parents may defer the start date until the following year after accepting an enrolment if there are circumstances affecting their child's start date. This deferral must be discussed and approved with the school Principal. Parents are asked to commit to the enrolment by paying the Confirmation of Enrolment fee and not pursuing further enrolment options at other schools.
Children who are younger than the prescribed age for Prep may be enrolled in Prep if they turn 5 years by 31 July in the year of proposed attendance and the Principal is satisfied the child is ready for education in Prep.
Consideration of enrolment will go to applicants in the following order of priority:
A non-refundable Confirmation of Enrolment fee is payable on receipt of a placement ($200 for new families only). This payment will be credited towards Term 1 school fees. This payment secures the enrolment position and confirms a parent's intention for their child to attend St Catherine's.
Please note that the fee is non-refundable if parents decide to withdraw their application for any reason after they have accepted a placement at St Catherine's. Fees are set annually.
The enrolment of students who may require special provisions for their educational placement will be considered in accordance with Brisbane Catholic Education's Enrolment Application and Support Procedures for students Requiring Significant Educational Adjustments (EASP). The enrolment application support process aims to reveal and clarify the needs of the student and to identify the educational adjustments and transition required for accessing learning and the school's capacity to provide this support.
The final decision regarding offers of enrolment is at the discretion of the Principal.
