Enrolment information

At St. Margaret’s, we are all responsible for being a welcoming, inclusive Foundation to Year 6 Catholic community. We strive for excellence and take action in a contemporary world through respectful partnerships.

Enquires about St Margaret’s School community are most welcome. The choice of school for your child’s education is of great importance.

St Margaret’s is a Parish Primary School committed to the teachings of the Catholic faith and to the provisions of quality programs, which foster each child’s full and balanced development. We view education as a partnership – a joint responsibility between the school and home, bound by common beliefs and values, in a spirit of mutual support and encouragement.

Here at St Margaret’s, our focus on community, our Catholic heritage and tradition, pastoral care, and quality education make us who we are. The energies of the school community – children, parents and staff are integrated into the understanding of what it means to be a human person created in God’s image, aware of the interconnectedness of all life.

This occurs best when the family and school work together in partnership. If you choose to have your child/children attend St Margaret’s, you can be assured that we will work with you to enable your child to reach their potential.


Students starting school in Prep must turn 5 years old prior to 30th April during their Foundation year at school.​


Enrolment applications are accepted at any time. However, the usual timeframe is from February to May of the year before your child starts in Foundation.

Towards the end of April, families and their children will be invited to a personalised guided tour of the school with the Principal.

First-round offers are sent to families at the beginning of May, and subsequent rounds are offered when and if applicable.
