Enrolment policy

Enrolment Process

Applications for enrolment are taken at any time. Parents are required to complete and lodge an Enrolment Application Form and pay the Enrolment Application Fee. A fee of $60.00 (includes GST) is payable on lodgement and is not refundable. When a possible place becomes available, you will be contacted for an interview with the Principal. This allows us to better understand your child’s needs, ensure that your expectations align with the ethos, values and opportunities offered at Bethany and answer any questions you may have. We will also take you on a tour of our wonderful facilities and show you our school in action.

During the year, Open Days are held where parents are given a school tour. The school’s philosophy and practices are explained. Parents who have made application for enrolment or who are interested in finding out more about the school are invited to attend.

Acceptance of enrolment offers

After receiving an offer of enrolment, you will need to confirm this and reserve the place, by signing the Enrolment Contract and by paying a family deposit of $350. This is required to be paid within 2 weeks. The family deposit is refundable on request after the last child of the family has completed Year 6. Alternatively, it may be donated to the school building Fund. Donations to this fund are tax deductible.

Entry through the year levels

Enrolment applications for families seeking to enrol children throughout the school are processed as they are received. If a place is not immediately available, student names are added to our waiting list. As with all schools, families are mobile and parents do relocate for work and other reasons. Each year throughout the classes a number of transfers occur and so it is worthwhile to make enquiries.

School Tours

We understand that finding the right school for your child is an important decision. Some parents prefer to view the school before beginning the Enrolment Process. You are welcome to contact our Enrolments Officer to make a time for a personalised tour with either the Principal or Deputy Principal.
