Reception Students

St Columba College is excited to announce mid-year Reception enrolment intake commencing in 2024. Children turning five years old between 1 May and 31 October will be eligible to start school in Term 3.

Why a Mid-Year Intake?

There is a large body of research that shows the benefit of high-quality early learning and care experiences for children in their first 1,000 days of life, and in the years prior to school.

Students who start in Term 3 spend 18 months in Reception before progressing to Year 1.

If you are interested in learning more, please fill out an enquiry form below or call our Enrolment Officer on 8254 0605. Limited positions are available. We encourage families to complete an Application for Enrolment Form at the earliest opportunity.

Enrolment Meeting

Approximately 18 months before your child is due to commence, we will contact you to arrange an enrolment meeting with a member of our Leadership Team. Your child must be present at this meeting. The meeting will help us to get to know your child and family, and provides you with an opportunity to get to know us better and ask any questions.

Letter of Offer

Following a successful meeting (and an available vacant place), we will then issue a Letter of Offer and other paperwork to be returned to us along with a $100 acceptance fee (non-refundable).

Waiting List

If there are no vacancies available, your child will be placed on our waiting list and will be issued with a Letter of Offer once a place becomes available.
