Enrolments Process for 2024 Foundation (Prep)
Thank you for your interest in enrolling at our school. To ensure that every family has the appropriate opportunity to enrol their child, all Ballarat Catholic Primary Schools collaborate throughout the process of Foundation (Prep) Enrolment. Information collected through the enrolment process is collated on a common database, which is shared by the Catholic Primary Schools in Ballarat.
The application process for 2024 Foundation (Prep) Enrolments:
After 8 February 2023, register your interest in enrolling your child at a Catholic school in the City of Ballarat by completing an online “City of Ballarat Expression of Interest for Enrolment” form- the link will be provided on the hompage of our website on 8 February 2023. During this process you will be able to nominate Siena Catholic Primary School as your first preference. Expressions of Interest close on 25 May.
While completing the Expression of Interest form you will be required to indicate your first, second and third preference schools and upload your child’s birth certificate (mandatory) and baptism certificate (if applicable).
