Please note that completion of this form does not guarantee the enrolment of your child. Enrolment will depend upon the availability of an appropriate placement for your child and the satisfactory completion of an interview between yourself/yourselves and the principal in accordance with our Enrolment Policy.

Enrolment Policy

St Anthony’s Kedron was established by the Franciscan Sisters and Friars and the people of the Kedron Parish to provide for the educational needs of the children of Parish families. The primary purpose of the school is to nurture and educate the whole child through and by the principles, traditions and teachings of the church and within a Franciscan community of faith.  Enrolment at St Anthony’s is Prep to Year 4 for boys and Prep to Year 6 for girls.

Applications for enrolment (at all levels) are welcomed during any time of the school year. In assisting the school to plan for each year, the following procedures exist for prep enrolments and all other year level enrolments.

Prepatory year (Prep):

An invitation to enrol siblings for Prep is provided through the school newsletter and on the website at the beginning of the school year prior to them starting prep. All parents who want their enrolment to be considered under the enrolment priority criteria 1 will be required to complete appropriate enrolment procedures by 28th February of the year prior to the commencement of Prep.

After this date, sibling enrolments will be processed with the other applications through priority criteria 2-6.

All other year levels:

Applications for enrolment may be submitted to the school at any time. An interview with the Principal will be held to determine the availability of places in the year level of enrolment. Once a vacancy has been confirmed, and an interview has occurred, a letter of offer will be posted to the family.

Enrolment at St Anthony’s Kedron does not guarantee acceptance of enrolment at Padua or Mt Alvernia.

In recognition of the importance of the relationship between the Catholic School and the Parish Community, and with due reference to Archdiocesan policies and practices, the following criteria are adopted to establish priorities for accepting enrolments.

Enrolment Priority Criteria

  1. Siblings of students already enrolled at and attending St Anthony’s
  2. Child is a Baptised Catholic whose family can demonstrate ongoing involvement in the life, worship and service of the Parish of Kedron and reside within the parish boundaries.
  3. Child is a Baptised Catholic whose family can demonstrate ongoing involvement in the life, worship and service of the Parish of Kedron and reside outside the parish boundaries.
  4. Child is a Baptised Catholic whose family can demonstrate ongoing involvement in the life, worship and service of another Parish outside of Kedron.
  5. Child, though not Baptised Catholic, belongs to a family with a demonstrated affiliation with Christian values and traditions residing within Parish boundaries.
  6. Child, though not Baptised Catholic, belongs to a family with a demonstrated affiliation with Christian values and traditions residing outside Parish boundaries.
