How do I enrol my child at St Joseph's Payneham?

Playgroup / Piccolini/ Preschool/ School (R-6)

Parents / guardians need to submit an Enrolment Application Form and pay the fee.

Parents and children are invited to attend a family interview with the Principal the year before their child starts in Preschool or Reception.

Parents wishing to enrol their child in Years 1 – 6 may also apply.

Enrolment interviews take place for Preschool and School at the same time and they include a Principal's Tour.

You will receive an offer of enrolment with an 'Acceptance Contract' to confirm a place for your child. and you have about a month to accept the offer.

By filling in and returning the Acceptance Contract together with the Enrolment Deposit, your child's place  is confirmed.
