Principles

The Parish Primary Schools Enrolment Policy is consistent with the Catholic Education Office Melbourne (CEOM) Policy 2.4 Enrolment for Schools in the Archdiocese of Melbourne.

Rationale

Our Parish Catholic school is open and welcoming to all students.

As the first educators of their children parents are encouraged to enter into partnership with our Parish schools to promote and support their child’s education.  This partnership requires a shared responsibility between family and teachers. We strive for excellence in student learning, their wellbeing and spiritual growth.

As a Catholic primary school we offer a broad comprehensive curriculum with an authentic Catholic understanding of Christ and his teaching, as well as a lived appreciation of membership of the Catholic Church.

Our Catholic schools are an integral part of the mission of the church.  We ensure an authentic Catholic identity and the Policy is reflective of the guidelines approved by the Archbishop of Melbourne.
