FCJ College has a comprehensive enrolment process including a meeting with parents and students as well as a school tour so that you feel familiar and comfortable with what we can offer to your child.

a. names and addresses of the child and parents/guardians; telephone numbers (home, work, mobile) of parents/guardians;

b. names of emergency contacts and their details;

After lodgement of the enrolment form, school staff may need to request further information, for example in relation to any parenting orders, medical conditions or additional learning needs that you have noted on the enrolment form. In addition, it is often useful for parents / guardians to attend a meeting with school staff prior to enrolment to discuss any additional needs your child may have.


2. Fees

2.1. The setting of fee levels and other compulsory charges in Catholic schools is the responsibility of the school, taking into account the allocation of government funds. The school offers a number of methods for paying fees to reduce any financial burden and to assist financial planning. If you have difficulty in meeting the required fee payment, you are welcome to discuss this with the principal of the school.

2.2. The fees must be paid for a child to continue to be enrolled at the school. The school has discretion whether to allow a child to participate in optional or extracurricular school events, such as paid school excursions or extracurricular activities, while fees remain due and payable.

2.3 All families must annually complete a fees payment election form, camps sports and excursion fund (CSEF) application form if eligible and a laptop user agreement. The college finance office will contact families in early term four to confirm the following year’s year level composite school fees and to implement a school fees payment arrangement.

3. Terms of enrolment regarding acceptable behaviour

3.1 The school community recognizes that everyone has the right to be respected, to feel safe and be safe; and, in this regard, understands their rights and acknowledges their obligation to behave responsibly.

3.2. Every person at the school has a right to feel safe, to be happy and to learn; therefore, we aim to:

a) promote the values of honesty, fairness and respect for others

As a term of your child's enrolment, parents and guardians are expected to comply with the school's behaviour aims and code of conduct, and to support the school in upholding prescribed standards of dress, appearance and behaviour.

3.4. Unacceptable behaviour by a child, or repeated behaviour by a parent or guardian that, in the school's view, is unacceptable and damaging to the partnership between parent/guardian and school, may result in suspension or termination of the child's enrolment.

4. Terms of enrolment regarding provision of accurate information

4.1. It is vitally important that the school is made aware of each child's individual circumstances insofar as these may impact upon their physical, functional, emotional or educational needs, particularly where the school is required to provide additional support to the child.

4.2. Parents and guardians must provide accurate and up-to-date information when completing an enrolment form and must supply the school with any additional information as may be requested, including copies of documents such as medical/specialist reports (where relevant to the child's schooling), reports from previous schools, court orders or parenting agreements. Provision of requested documentation is regarded as a condition of enrolment, and enrolment may be refused where a parent/guardian has unreasonably refused to provide requested information or knowingly withheld relevant information from the school.

4.3. Where, during the course of a child's enrolment, new information becomes available that is material to the child's educational and/or safety /well-being needs, it is a term of the child's continuing enrolment that such information is provided to the school promptly.

4.4. The provision of an inaccurate residential address or failure to provide an updated residential address for the child will also be treated as a breach of the terms of enrolment.

5. Assessment and updates

5.1. Various opportunities are provided to keep you up to date with your child's progress. You will receive two comprehensive written reports each year and arrangements will be made for at least one interview where you can discuss your child's development with their teacher.
