Enrolment Process

  • Please lodge an enrolment form.
  • A $50.00 per family application fee is payable upon lodgement of an enrolment form.
  • Receipt of this form will be acknowledged, however this is not a guarantee of acceptance.
  • An interview with the Principal will be arranged in the year prior to your child starting and acceptance will be discussed at this time.
  • Enrolment is completed with a formal letter of offer and your reply of acceptance.
  • As a waiting list sometimes exists, priority is given to enrolments in order of application.


Children are admitted following an enrolment interview between the Principal, child and parents.

St Raphael's School is pleased to be offering a mid-year Reception intake again!

Children who turn five on or before 30 April will begin school in Term 1 of that year. Children who turn five on or after 1 May will be eligible to start in Term 3 of the same year.

Children who begin school in Term 1 will, under normal circumstances, move into Year One at the start of the following year while those who have commenced in Term 3 will have an additional full year in Reception.

Children transferring into the school will be admitted on a mutually agreed day.
