Enrolment Information

As parents and carers, choosing the right learning environment for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. At St Philomena's, we’re committed to quality education and offer a wide range of learning opportunities designed to help each individual student flourish to their fullest potential, during and beyond their formative school years. 

We're delighted by your interest in becoming a part of our vibrant and supportive community.

Enrolment Criteria

We welcome all families and children, Catholic or non-Catholic, at our school. However, parents/carers must support the philosophy of our Catholic faith, and children must participate in Religious Education classes and attend Religious activities such as class/school prayer and school Masses.

When spaces are limited, enrolment at Catholic schools within the Diocese adheres to the enrolment priority order, as outlined in our Enrolment Policy.

School Tours and Kindergarten Orientation Program

Individual school tours for prospective families are available year-round. These tours offer an opportunity to discuss how our teaching and learning ethos and environment will benefit your child. It’s also an opportunity to meet our teachers and experience our classrooms and facilities first-hand. Contact our office to book a tour today.

Our comprehensive Kindergarten Orientation Program takes place during Term 4 of the school year. This program is designed to provide children with a smooth transition into Kindergarten life. It’s an opportunity for your child to familiarise themselves with the environment, meet their future teachers, and engage with potential classmates. By fostering early interactions, we aim to encourage the development of skills and pre-emptive friendships, setting the stage for a positive start to their school journey. Information and dates for the program are provided to parents/carers upon a successful Kindergarten application.
