Procedures

The following is the process for enrolment into the preschool or school at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School.

  1. Contact the school on (08) 84471405 or email the school at info@mcps.catholic.edu.au or personally visit the school to make an enquiry about enrolment or to express your interest in Our Lady of Mount Carmel School. An Application Form will be sent to you.
  2. Return the completed Application Form to the school. Copies of birth certificates and Baptismal certificates (where applicable) must be provided.
  3. The School Enrolment Officer will contact parents or carers inviting them to an enrolment interview. Enrolment interviews generally occur in Term 2 the year prior to the child starting Preschool or school.
  4. Parents and the child meet with the Principal. During this meeting parents are given information about the school and have their questions answered. This also provides an opportunity for the Principal to meet the child.
  5. If a position is available a letter of ‘Offer of Enrolment’ is sent to the parents.
  6. If parents wish to accept this enrolment offer then parents sign the ‘Acceptance of Offer’ and return it to the school with a payment of $50 to secure the position. This $50 is deducted off the school fees when the child starts school.
  7. If a position is not currently available the school will notify you by letter and the enrolment will be placed on a waiting list.
