How to Enrol​

We encourage parents to enrol their children two years prior to their entry year.

 

Please be advised that a non-refundable $40 application fee is payable when you submit an application form.

 

Please also be aware that lodging an application form does not guarantee an offer, it registers your interest in a possible position and places the student on a progressive waitlist.

**PLEASE NOTE:

If you are not an Australian citizen or permanent resident of Australia you will need to provide details of your Temporary Visa Class.

 

For further information please visit the International Student page.

How to Enrol​

The enrolment process begins with submitting an application form.

 

Once an application is received along with all relevant documentation, your family will be invited to a School Tour to see and learn about John Septimus Roe Anglican Community School. Attendance at a School Tour is recommended prior to submitting your application for enrolment. However, if you have not had a tour prior to submitting your forms, please mention this when you hand in your forms.

 

Should a place be available to offer your child, you will be offered an interview with an Associate Principal.
