Alternatively, you can collect an enrolment package from the School’s Main Administration.


There is a demand for places, particularly in Kindergarten, Year 7, 9 and 10, therefore parents are advised to register their interest well ahead of the year of anticipated entry.

You may lodge your application via email to [email protected] or at the School’s Main Administration.

  • A non-refundable application fee is payable when you submit an application form.
  • 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.

Prior to entry, the JSRACS Enrolment’s Officer will contact families to confirm their intent to proceed with the application.


Up to date reports will be requested at this time.


Families may then be invited to attend an enrolment interview with the Principal or the Principal’s nominee.

After a satisfactory interview, a formal offer of a place may be made. Places are offered at the Principal’s discretion.


The offer letter will be sent to you via mail and will include a letter from the Principal inviting you to join JSRACS. Within this package you will also receive, a Conditions of Offer notice that will need to be signed and returned to Administration (a second copy for your records is also included), A MCEETYA Data Collection form that will also need to be signed and returned and payment details for the acceptance fee.
