How to Enrol

Selecting St Thomas Aquinas Primary School, will give your child the best opportunity to develop academically, spiritually and socially, and in partnership with Catholic education.


St Thomas Aquinas is accepting enrolments now, for children eligible to commence Kindergarten next year. Enrolment enquiries are also welcome for primary school aged children seeking enrolment during the school year.

St Thomas Aquinas Primary School has been established to cater especially for the communities immediately in the vicinity of St Thomas Aquinas Primary School. Enrolment procedures will be followed to ensure that priority is given to families who share and support the special character of our Catholic schools. A priority order will be followed that supports:

  • a strong parish faith community
  • the Gospel priority to support those in need
  • priority to religious education
  • parent/school partnership and a caring community
  • a strong Parent Group actively promoting the goals of the school

 

 

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.
