Our Lady of Mount Carmel Primary School, Waterloo is a Catholic school. Enrolments at the school are governed by the Archdiocesan Enrolment Policy.

Children who are enrolled into Kindergarten must turn 5 by 31 July of the year they commence school. Enrolments take place during the month of May for the following year. Every year, OLMC, in association with local pre-schools, runs a Transition to Kinder Program to assist children with the transition from pre-school to 'big' school.

An enrolment form may be collected by parents from the school office for completion. Parents are required to attend an interview with their child. Interview times will be negotiated between the school and the family.

You need to bring with you:

  • Birth certificate
  • Baptismal certificate
  • Immunisation certificate
  • Passports may also be required

Enrolments in grades other than Kindergarten occur throughout the year as needed. Initially, the school office should be contacted to arrange an appointment.

You will need to bring with you:

  • Birth certificate;
  • Baptismal certificate
  • Immunisation certificate
  • Copy of the last school report

Families are expected to support Catholic ideals and principles to be eligible for enrolment.

It is important that if your child has any special educational needs, you bring along copies of any assessments done. These assessments will then be sent to our Regional Office for advice.
