Enrolment Policy

Enrolment into Year 7
For Year 7 applications, priority is given first to siblings and then Catholic applicants. The order of entry is then determined in light of the need to ensure a reasonable balance between male and female enrolments, as relevant.
As part of the above determination, priority will be given to applicants from the Catholic primary schools of the above parishes.
For enrolment at Emmanuel College, a child’s consideration as a Catholic is usually established by a certificate of Catholic baptism. For students resident in the catchment areas for MacKillop and Thomas Carr Colleges, the written permission of the relevant parish priest should be submitted with the application.
Enrolment offers to male applicants are on a College basis and may involve an offer for St Paul’s Campus to applicants who applied to enrol at the College at Notre Dame Campus. An offer of enrolment is at the discretion of the Principal who will consider each case on its merits in light of the above enrolment priorities and taking into account any special circumstance.
