When enrolling at the school a Birth Certificate, Immunisation Record Card and 2 x Proof of Residency need to be sighted before an ‘Application for Enrolment’ can be accepted, as required by the Department of Education. Eligibility for enrolment is checked and parents will be asked to attend an interview with their child before official enrolment can take place.
It is important that the school is aware of any medical, physical or learning problems your child may have. These issues must be noted on the enrolment form and, if a serious condition, discussed with the Administration and documentation provided. Parents are also asked to notify the office of any changes to address/phone numbers etc. In the case of separated or divorced parents, custody arrangements or access rights to the child within school hours must be documented in writing, to be held by the school. All information is strictly confidential.

A major focus of our school is in the area of pastoral care to promote self esteem in students, parents and staff. This is vital in order to achieve the fundamental aims. Pastoral care includes effective management of student behaviour through a positive, supportive, whole school approach and the development of a caring attitude towards students with parents becoming involved in student behaviour and education.
