How to enrol

Enrolment Procedure after contacting the School Office

  1. You will be provided with an enrolment prospectus, enrolment form and other information for parents and caregivers
  2. If you wish to proceed with an enrolment for your child, return the completed application for enrolment form along with the non-refundable enrolment processing fee of $50 ($25 for siblings)
  3. Upon receipt of the completed enrolment form and application fee the applicant’s name will be added to the list of applicants seeking enrolment to St Martin de Porres in a specific year and appropriate designated year level
  4. The school will then contact parent/caregivers to arrange an interview which is conducted by the Principal or delegate. The interview will include discussion about the student’s and family needs, the ethos of the school, as well as financial and support expectations
  5. Places at St Martin de Porres are offered by the Principal according to the school’s enrolment criteria:
    1. Catholic children whose parents live in the Sheidow Park community within the Parish of Hallett Cove and whose parents have a commitment to their Parish and the practice of their faith or children who have siblings currently enrolled at the school
    2. Children who are transferring from another Catholic school
    3. Catholic children whose parents do not have a commitment to the practice of their faith, but indicate a willingness to renew their interest and educate their child in the faith
    4. Non-Catholic children whose parents have a commitment to their own faith, and are open to their child’s Christian faith development in a Catholic School environment
  6. Normally, offers of enrolment will occur two weeks after the interview. Acceptance of such offers will involve a contractual agreement and payment of an enrolment acceptance fee by a certain date. Once the enrolment is confirmed in writing, this fee will be credited to the student’s first term school fee
  7. A letter confirming the student’s enrolment will be sent to the parents / caregivers along with a letter advising them of the starting date and year level for their child, transition meeting and other information related to the student’s commencement at the school
  8. If a place is not available and the application meets the enrolment criteria, the student will be placed on a waiting list if this is the wish of the parents/ caregivers. Parents/caregivers will then be notified if a place becomes available
  9. It is the responsibility of the parents/caregivers to advise the school of changes to address or contact details. Failure to do so may preclude an applicant from offers of enrolment
  10. The following documents must accompany an application for enrolment form:
  • a copy of the birth certificate or extract – REQUIRED DOCUMENT
