How to Enrol

Thank you for your interest in St Monica’s Catholic Primary. We look forward to welcoming you.


St Monica’s is a K-6 primary school providing quality faith-based education for all learners in an innovative, welcoming environment.

Please note that as a Catholic school we have a strong religious dimension and people of other faiths who wish to enrol must be able to support and fully participate in the religious activities of the school.

While enrolments are taken at any time during the year, the main enrolment period each year is from the beginning of the school year until the end of May.

Please follow the guidelines below and you are welcome to contact our Enrolment Officer at any time to help you obtain further information or guide you through the enrolment process.

 

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision.

We encourage parents to organise a time to tour our school, meet our staff and see our learning in action. There are also a number of organised events, such as Open Days, which will also help future parents to get a 'feel' for our school.
