In line with our Benedictine values and Good Samaritan educational philosophies, the College is committed to providing a safe, caring and supportive environment that is responsible for the needs of our students academically, physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually and pastorally.
The College enrols girls whose parents (or guardians) seek a Catholic education, with enrolment preference applied in the following order:
Siblings of current students or students with past pupil history
Catholic students from Catholic schools
Catholic students from non-Catholic schools
Non-Catholic students from Catholic schools
Non-Catholic students from non-Catholic schools
In keeping with the philosophy of the Sisters of the Good Samaritan, poor academic performance, financial capacity and social background are not barriers to entry.
Applications for Enrolment will be accepted for assessment four years prior to the commencement (i.e. from the commencement of Year 3 for enrolment in Year 7).
Before you start your application, please ensure that you have the following ready:
A copy of your daughter's Australian birth certificate, Passport or Citizenship Certificate OR a copy of your daughter's International Birth Certificate, Passport and current Visa documents.

The application form should take you approximately 30 minutes to complete providing you have all the supporting documents at hand.
If your daughter's Year 3 NAPLAN report is not available at time of application please forward a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org when received.
Once received, your application will be held on file until the advertised close of enrolments date.
