How to enrol

St Joseph's is now accepting enrolments for children eligible to commence Kindergarten next year. 

Children may be eligible to start Kindergarten if they turn five years of age prior to the 31st July of the year they are commencing school. However, enrolment would be determined by the readiness of the individual child.

We also have limited spaces in selected primary school grades. We welcome new enrolment enquiries for primary school aged children seeking enrolment during the school year.

Why not arrange a school tour today? Come and see for yourself why families choose our school to educate their children.

Enrolment enquiries can be made at any time by contacting the office on 8869 8100 weekdays or by visiting us between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm, or by sending us an email.

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision.

We encourage parents to organise a time to tour our school, meet our staff and see our learning in action. There are also a number of organised events, such as Open Days, which will also help future parents to get a 'feel' for our school.

Important Notice


Parents of students with additional needs are encouraged to begin the enrolment process in advance of the normal enrolment period to allow for assessment of the support and adjustments required. Initial contact should be made with the Principal.

Parents are asked to provide copies of assessments or reports concerning learning needs.

It may be suggested that further assessments be undertaken by the school leadership team, or by staff from the Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta.

The enrolment process involves consultation and clarification of student needs. Available support and resources are investigated with parents, school personnel and Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta.
