Enrolment Procedures

Thank you for your interest in enrolling your child at St Joachim’s.

St Joachim’s is an inclusive school where enrolment is open to Catholic, and where possible, children from other faith traditions. Our enrolment capacity is determined by our physical resources and our ability to cater for the holistic education of each child.

At all times, the principal has the right to approve or refuse an enrolment if the criteria as set by the Catholic Education Council cannot be satisfied.

Should it be necessary to limit the intake of Prep pupils to St. Joachim’s, then preference will be accorded in order of the following criteria, subject to the provision of a baptismal certificate:

  • Catholic children living within the Holland Park Mt Gravatt Catholic Parish
  • Catholic children living beyond the Holland Park Mt Gravatt Catholic Parish
  • Children of non-Catholics of the Parish who are practising their faith
  • Children of parents who support the philosophy of Catholic Education.

If necessary, an Enrolment Application Support Process (EASP) for students with disabilities will be conducted according the Brisbane Catholic Education policy and guidelines.

If application is accepted it is understood that parents comply with the spirit of the school Mission Statement, our Community Values and Relationships Guidelines and agree to pay such fees and mandatory levies as set by the local authority.
