Principles

The Parish Primary Schools Enrolment Policy is consistent with the Catholic Education Office Melbourne (CEOM) Policy 2.4 Enrolment for Schools in the Archdiocese of Melbourne.

Rationale

Our Parish Catholic schools have been established primarily for Catholic children.  We are open and welcoming to all Catholic students.

As the first educators of their children parents are encouraged to enter into partnership with our Parish schools to promote and support their child’s education.  We strive for excellence in student learning, their wellbeing and spiritual growth.

As a Catholic primary school we offer a broad comprehensive curriculum with an authentic Catholic understanding of Christ and his teaching, as well as a lived appreciation of membership of the Catholic Church.

Our Catholic schools are an integral part of the mission of the church.  We ensure an authentic Catholic identity and the Policy is reflective of the guidelines approved by the Archbishop of Melbourne.

Enrolment Policy

Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School, in the Sunbury Parish exists to enable the Catholic Church to carry out its responsibility to provide for the baptised Catholic child, a formation in faith, hence priority in enrolment is given to Catholic children.

The enrolment of non-catholic children who reside in the school catchment area may take place only when their enrolment would not exclude Catholic children from the school.

Enrolments into Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School is taken in the following priority:

  • Catholic children who reside within the Parish catchment areas.
  • Catholic children from other parishes (for pastoral reasons).
  • Children from non-Catholic Eastern churches who reside within the Parish catchment areas.
  • Other Christian children who reside within the Parish catchment areas.
  • Non-Christian children who reside within the Parish catchment areas.

The Parish Priest will consider enrolments from outside the above priority list. (Based on Pastoral reasons).

NOTE: Siblings of children already in the school and Catholic children/families have high priority with regards to enrolment.

Waiting List

In the event of a school in the Parish being unable to offer a place to a Catholic child resident in Sunbury Parish catchment areas, the Parish will make every effort to support enrolment in another school.

Fees

As Catholic Schools are not fully funded by governments we have to charge fees.  It is Parish policy that the three schools, St Anne’s, Our Lady of Mt Carmel and Holy Trinity, have the same school fees and the same school policy. It is always our aim to keep these as affordable as possible.

We have a:

  • Family Fee – per family charge no matter how many children.
  • Individual Fee – per child and covers everything the children need including incursions, excursions, sports and sacramental expenses.

Fees can be paid in many ways:

  1. Up front by beginning of March.
  2. By instalments (March, May and July).
  3. Direct Deposit.
  4. Direct Debit set up for weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments.

Enrolment for all other Year Levels

Enrolments into other classes will be accepted at any time during the year conditional on our enrolment policy and the availability of places.
