Enrolment

All enquires about St Joachim’s Catholic Primary School are most welcome.

2020 Foundation (Prep) Enrolments are now open.

The choice of school for your child’s education is of great importance. The Prep Handbook (below) should give you a clear ‘picture’ of the values and goals we strive for, as well as the programs and curriculum we present.

Enrolment of Students at St Joachim's Catholic Primary School.

St Joachim’s Primary School accepts enrolments from pupils residing within the Parish of Seaford.

To enrol your child/ren, an appointment must be made firstly with the Principal.

Parents will then be invited to attend an interview with Fr Benneth. Following the interview with Fr Benneth, parents will be informed shortly thereafter, by mail, as to the status of their application.

Application for enrolment for all other levels will be accepted during the year if places are available. The enrolment policy applies in all cases. Enrolments may be made by telephoning the School Office on (03) 9785 2633 to make an appointment.

Please note that all children must turn 5 years of age on or before April 30 of the year that they begin schooling. It is encouraged that all children be five when they begin school.

Non-Catholic families are welcome at St Joachim’s, if class sizes permit and they are supportive of the Catholic culture of the school. We encourage families to be supportive of our Catholic traditions and practices and that all children in the school are fully involved at all times in the life of our Catholic Community.

All families are asked to financially contribute to the school through the payment of school fees, levies and excursion costs. These help us to run our school effectively and thus provide the best possible education for the children in our care. Families who are struggling financially and have difficulty meeting these costs will never be discriminated against and will always be supported at our school. The Parish Priest and Principal are available to meet and discuss these issues with parents at any time.

Children with special needs are welcome. An assessment of the child's needs are made with the child's parents and a support group made up of the Wellbeing Coordinator, Principal and a Catholic Education Office representative. This will allow the school to implement programs best suited to the child’s needs, within the school’s philosophy, curriculum and structure.

Following your enrolment acceptance, a transition process will be set for your child/ren so as to provide a happy and smooth start into a new learning environment.

Please feel free to contact the school on (03) 9785 2633 if you have any enquiries.



We are located at 25 Broderick Rd Carrum Downs.
