Enrolment Policy

Rationale:
The process of enrolment of students should assist both the parents and the school in determining whether enrolment at St. Peter Julian Eymard Parish Community School is appropriate.

Aims:
To provide an efficient and clear process of enrolment that satisfies the needs of both students and the school

Guidelines:
Enrolments are decided by the following set of guidelines established by the Parish Priest, Principal and School Advisory Council in keeping with the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria guidelines. Total enrolment at the school, along with the decision to accept any child, remains a joint decision between Principal and Parish Priest.

Enrolment Priorities:

  1. Catholic children who are residents of the parish
  2. Catholic children who do not reside in the parish but belong to the parish community
  3. Catholic children from other parishes (for pastoral reasons)
  4. Children from Non Catholic Eastern Churches who reside in the parish
  5. Children from Non Catholic Eastern Churches who reside outside the parish
  6. Other Christian children who reside in the parish
  7. Other Christian children who reside outside the parish
  8. Non-Christian children who reside in the parish
  9. Non-Christian children who reside outside the parish
