Aspects to Note

  • The learning capacity of a Catholic child is generally not a criterion for entry, however, the enrolment of children with impairment, disability, or handicap, would depend on the ability of the school to cater for the specific needs of the child
  • Children will generally not be denied enrolment because their parents are unable to pay school fees. This is at the discretion of the Parish Priest and Principal
  • While the degree of faith commitment of a child’s parents is a relevant consideration, it is not normally a criterion for enrolling children.
  • All places offered at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Primary School are made by the Parish Priest and Principal.
  • Acceptance into St. Francis de Sales Catholic Primary School does not imply automatic acceptance at another Catholic Primary School or Catholic Secondary School.
