Confirmation of Place

Once a place has been confirmed, families will be sent an Offer/Acceptance Contract. Offers are valid for one month only, and the payment of the non-refundable endowment fee secures your child’s place. The endowment fee is to be paid only for the first two children enrolled at the School.

Once your child has received their confirmation of place, families will be invited for a welcome interview to meet the Head of School and Head of Primary or Secondary. Primary and Secondary confirmed students are invited to attend an Orientation Day the year prior to commencement. Orientation Day is usually held in November and attendance is strongly encouraged. Children enrolled to commence Kindergarten participate in a transition program held in Term 4, the year prior to commencement.

The Public Health Act 2016 (WA) and the School Education Act 1999 (WA) stipulates that enrolment of a child in a pre-kindergarten or kindergarten program requires the provision of an up to date AIR Statement History.  Your child’s Immunisation History statement can be downloaded from MyGov by logging into your Medicare Online Account. If your child requires an exemption you are advised to consult your GP in the first instance who will complete an AIR Immunisation Medical Exemption Form. The enrolment office will contact you prior to commencement to collect an up to date AIR no more than two months old or An AIR Immunisation History Form, if your child is on a catch-up schedule.

Notice for withdrawal information

Should your family be required to withdraw from the School, notice in writing to the Head of School must be provided prior to the withdrawal of any student, otherwise fees in lieu of notice will apply. This includes at the end of the school year when a student will not be returning following year. Day students are required to provide one term’s notice, and Boarders are required to provide a full semester’s notice, including if they become a day student.
