Enrolment

St Joseph the Worker Catholic Primary School is part of the system of Catholic schools administered by the Catholic Education Office of the Archdiocese of Sydney. We are supported by the Parish of St Peter Chanel/St Joseph the Worker. Enrolments at the school are governed by the Archdiocesan Enrolment Policy (see 'CEO Policies' tab for more details).

Children entering Kindergarten must turn five years old by 31 July of the year they start school. All students are interviewed and assessed to determine their readiness for school.

Enrolments take place from March each year. Enrolment forms are available from the school office during school hours. Parents or carers need to complete the enrolment application and return it to the School Office. They will then be given an interview time to attend with their child.

Other enrolments occur throughout the year, as needed. Children who have previously attended a school should bring a copy of their last school report.

Enrolment at St Joseph the Worker is made on the understanding that parents and students appreciate that education in the Catholic faith is foundational to the educational process, and that active support of the values of the Catholic education system is expected of all families. This includes placing Jesus and the values of the Gospel at the heart of all we do, and focusing on a holistic education which highlights the relevance of faith to contemporary life and culture.

Expectations of enrolment at St Joseph the Worker Catholic Primary School:

  • demonstration of a willingness to support the ethos of the Catholic school
  • support for the school policies and practices mentioned in the Parent Handbook
  • active participation by the student in all educational programs
  • acceptance of responsibility in payment of school fees, the building levy and other fees and charges.
