Catholic Education South Australia

Enrolment Procedures

St Patrick's School is a Reception to Year 6 Catholic Parish School that offers low affordable fees and emphasises the spirit of community, which forms the basis of the education offered at our school. An application for enrolment is an acknowledgement of the parents' desire to support the school in all its endeavours in building a Christian Community.

If you require further information about the school prior to entering into this process, you are most welcome to contact the School Office (8303 4500) or email to arrange to meet with the Principal who will show you around the school and answer any questions you may have regarding the curriculum or other aspects of the school's program.

Enrolment Process

  • Parent requests the enrolment application form and prospectus.
  • The form is completed and returned to the school with the $30 application fee with the following documents
  1. Copy of Birth Certificate
  2. Copy of Baptismal Certificate (where applicable)
  3. Most recent school report (where applicable)

(Please note that once the enrolment is confirmed in writing, this application fee will be credited to the student's first term school fees)

  • A letter of acknowledgement is sent from the school and an interview with the Principal is arranged. This interview would normally occur 12 months prior to commencement of school.
  • Following the interview an offer of placement or a letter of non-acceptance will be sent from the school.
  • The process of acceptance includes an enrolment agreement between parents and the school.



Places at St Patrick's School are offered according to our enrolment criteria:

  1. Siblings
  2. Catholic children whose parents live in the Croydon Park Parish community and have a commitment to their Parish and the practice of their faith, or children who have siblings currently enrolled at the school.
  3. Children transferring from another Catholic school.
  4. Catholic children whose parents do not have a commitment to the practice of their faith, but indicate a willingness to renew their interest and educate their children in faith.
  5. Non-Catholic children whose parents have a commitment to their own faith, and are open to their children's Christian faith development in a Catholic School environment.

If a place is not available and the application meets the enrolment criteria your child will be placed on a waiting list. You will then be notified if a place becomes available.



Children turning 5 on or before 30th April will begin school in Term 1, children turning 5 between the 1st May and the 31st of October will be able to commence at the beginning of Term 3 and complete 6 terms of Reception.
