Enrolment Application Form and Information


OLHC School Enrolment Policy and Procedure is available to all parents requesting a placement in our school.

The order of priority for DOBCEL primary schools is:

  1. Siblings of children already enrolled in the school
  2. Catholic children for whom this is the closest*Catholic Primary school to the child’s predominant residential address
  3. Catholic children for whom this is not the closest* Catholic Primary school to the child’s predominant residential address (for pastoral reasons, following referral of parents back to the closest school and discussions between colleague Principals)
  4. Other children who are seeking a Catholic education with priority given to those for whom this is the closest* Catholic Primary School to the child’s predominant residential address

* as measured by the student conveyance method - Student Conveyance Allowance System (SCAS)

* in shared care arrangements – where one parent has more than 50% shared care then this would be the residential address to determine the priority of enrolment.  In the case of equal (50/50) shared care then the closest residential address shall determine the priority of enrolment
