Enrolment review

We have two reviews of our enrolment numbers for the following year’s intake, typically these are mid-year and towards the end of  Term 3. The review dates are as follows:

  • 1st review of numbers will be done in week 1 of Term 3 (Monday 26th - Friday 31st July)
  • 2nd review of numbers will be done around 13th September

All letters of offer will have a two week acceptance period, with the first review acceptances due by the 10th August, and the second review acceptances due by the 27th September.

An offer of place will be sent to families after the review process mentioned above has been completed – usually within a week of the review date.  If your child is not offered a place in a class you will get the option of being placed on our waitlist.
