The following hierarchy of priorities has been established by the Catholic Education Commission for the consideration of enrolment applications at St Monica’s Primary School when enrolment applications exceed available spaces.


  1. Baptised Catholic children who are members of the designated local parish communities.
  2. Siblings of children already attending the primary school.
  3. Baptised Catholic children from other parishes who cannot obtain places in their local parish primary school.
  4. Baptised Catholic children from non-Catholic primary schools whose residential address is in the designated priority local parish communities.
  5. Baptised Catholic children whose parents/guardians seek to enrol them in a parish primary school outside their own parish but who can obtain places in their own parish primary school.
  6. Other children whose parents/guardians desire and are committed to a Catholic education.


Please note: Acceptance of a children into a Catholic System primary school does not confer an automatic entitlement to enrolment in a Catholic System secondary school. The enrolment of a student in a Catholic System secondary school is a new process and requires the completion and submission of a secondary school enrolment application. Refer to the Secondary Enrolment criteria.
