ENROLMENT

  • A tour of the College will be done at the time of student enrolment interview. We also run General Tours of the College throughout the year. If you would like to book a place on the General tour please click HERE.
  • When should I lodge my Expression of Interest?
  • Expressions of Interest can be lodged any time up until the end of Year 4 when applications will close.
  • When will I know if my child has a place for Year 7?
  • The full enrolment process takes place in the year that students are in Year 5. The enrolment process will start in February of that year and places will be offered by the end of June the same year.

GENERAL

  • What are the College hours?
  • The College Reception is open from 8.00am - 4.00pm. Classroom hours are from 8.45am - 3.30pm (3.00pm on Thursdays). There are six periods a day. 
  • How much homework should my child have?
  • The general recommendation is:
    • Years 7/8 - one hour per night
    • Years 9/ 10 - one and a half hours per night
    • Years 11/12 - three hours per night.
  • If my child is sick, who do I contact at the College?
  • Ring the Absentee line on 9246 8288 before 9:00am each day.
  • Can I find out when exams and school holidays are scheduled?
  • The College Calendar is available on the website. Exam timetables will be available on the year group's page under Current Families and advertised in the Newsletter.
  • What do I do if our child needs to be absent from school for an extended period of time?
  • Write a letter to the Principal outlining the dates, the reason for absence and a proposal for how the student will make up for schooling that is missed.
  • What happens if my child is sick during the day?
  • Any child who is ill or injured will report to our Health Centre and be assessed by our Occupational First Aid Officer before parents are notified. Students are not allowed to use their mobile phone to call parents. 
  • How can my child contact me during the day?
  • Students can report to the PCC to make important phone calls. They should not use their mobile phones during the school day.
  • What do I do if my child has an appointment during the day?
  • Students should bring a signed note and show the current teacher when it is time to leave. Students then report to the PCC, where a parent can collect them. Students will not be allowed to meet parents in locations other than the main Administration or the PCC.
  • What happens if my child is late for school?
  • Students should report directly to the PCC to sign in if they arrive after PCG time. Parents are asked to ring the Absentee Line (9246 8288) to indicate the whereabouts of their child.
  • What is the procedure if I want to get a message to my child during the day?
  • We ask that you ring the PCC early in the day (9246 8202 or 9246 8263). While every effort will be made to get important messages to students, we cannot guarantee that messages will be passed on in time.
  • What if my child has forgotten their lunch/recess?
  • The PCC has a system that covers students for the day. Any loans must be repaid the next day.
