Enrolments will be considered in the following order of priority:

  • Siblings of children already enrolled at the school
  • Catholic families from our parish
  • Catholic families from neighbouring parishes
  • Other families who are supportive of our Catholic Ethos

When submitting an enrolment application, parents acknowledge their acceptance of the policies of the school and their commitment to work in co-operation with school personnel for the benefit of their child.

Acceptance of an enrolment at St Kevin’s School indicates that parents understand their children will participate in the formal religious education program and liturgical life of the school.

All enrolments will be at the discretion of the Principal, in consultation with the Parish Priest.

An enrolment at St Kevin’s School does not guarantee future enrolments at other Catholic primary or secondary schools.

Children with special needs:

Procedures established by Brisbane Catholic Education will be used to assess the enrolments of children with special needs. A pamphlet outlining the process for the special needs enrolment is available on application.

Enrolment Procedure:

  • Families must first submit an Application for Enrolment Form (see above), along with a copy of the child’s birth certificate or extract, baptismal certificate (if applicable), immunisation record and any medical or specialist reports that may assist in understanding the child’s needs or circumstances regarding their development and readiness for school.
  • An enrolment interview will follow to provide an opportunity for parents to meet with the principal and exchange information regarding the enrolment of their child in the school.
  • Families will be notified as to the outcome of the enrolment process.
  • Students transferring from another school should provide a notice of transfer and a copy of relevant progress reports
  • Orientation for Prep and Year One entry will be organised for children and their families.

Acceptance of Enrolment

  • A signed Confirmation of Enrolment form notifies the school that parents have accepted the offer of a place in the school.
  • On acceptance of a place, a one off non-refundable fee of $100 per family, will be charged. This fee reserves the enrolment for the start of the year and also covers the costs associated with processing the application.
