St Mary’s Primary School caters for all students from Prep to Year 6. St Mary’s Learning Community welcomes all who wish to join and acknowledge our Christian values and traditions. Our enrolment procedure is outlined below.
Enrolment will be offered in the following order of priority:
Enrolment will be reliant on a vacancy existing in the relevant year level. When a vacancy exists, order of acceptance regarding the above priorities is according to date of enrolment application.
Children will not be excluded from St Mary’s Parish School for economic reasons related to the inability of the family to pay fees. It would be an expectation, however, that all families would be able to make a contribution towards such fees.
While the above priorities still apply, students with special needs will only be enrolled in accordance with Brisbane Catholic Education's Policy on Enrolment and Support Procedures for Students with Special Needs.
At the discretion of the Parish Priest and the Principal, variation may be made to this policy for the pastoral needs of those concerned.
Please contact the school should you have queries relating to enrolment information.
