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.
Step 1: Attend a School Tour. We recommend having a school tour to decide which school is your first preference. Click here to Book a Tour.
Step 2: Register your interest in enrolling your child by the online "City of Ballarat Expression of Interest for Enrolment" form by visiting https://dobcel.catholic.edu.au/our-schools/enrolments-application-form/by Thursday 23 May, 2024. This applies to both New and Existing Siena Families. When 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 and baptism certificate (if applicable). If you wish to do so, please nominate Siena Catholic Primary School as your first preference for your child’s education. Please note that completing this form does not guarantee that an offer will be made.
A link to our 2025 Online Enrolment Form will be sent with offers of a placement (31 May & 14 June). If you haven't received a first round offer, please wait until second round offers on 14 June before contacting us. Each Catholic Primary School will make offers of enrolment in line with the Diocese of Ballarat Enrolment Policy which takes into consideration a variety of factors.
Current Siena Families: We ask our Siena families who have children in Kindergarten this year who wish to enrol their child in Foundation 2025 at Siena to please complete their application for Expression of Interest by 11th March.
