Enrolment Procedure

Step oneMaking an enrolment application

An Enrolment Application form is available on this website or can be collected from the school office in person. Alternatively you can contact the school Enrolment Officer and information can be mailed or emailed to you directly.

If you would like to seek a position for your child/children at Palmerston Christian School, you will need to complete this application and return it to the school’s Enrolment Officer along with all necessary supporting documentation as stated on the enrolment form. No application can proceed to interview without all completed and signed documentation.

Step two – Interview

Students and parents will be invited to attend an interview with the Principal or Head of School. The aim of this interview is to provide an opportunity to talk about the school and answer any questions students and parents may have about Palmerston Christian School. We will discuss each child’s academic progress, behaviour, social development and general interests.

A tour of the school will be offered to every family.

If there are conversations that need to take place without the child/children present, we will arrange an opportunity for this to take place at this time.

Please note:

  • Interviews for future year enrolments are usually scheduled nine to twelve months prior to expected commencement date.
  • While we make every effort to offer positions of enrolment where we can, unfortunately we cannot offer a position to every child.

 

Step three – Notification from the school

You will be formally advised regarding your application and will receive a letter confirming your enrolment status.

If a position is available you will receive a Letter of Offer. The payment of the enrolment deposit secures your child/children’s enrolment place and is also acknowledgment of acceptance of the Conditions of Enrolment from that point in time.

This deposit will be refunded at the end of your child’s enrolment if all text books, library books and other school resources are returned and there are no outstanding accounts including notice of ten weeks, during term time has been given of their departure from the school.

Step fourWelcome to Palmerston Christian School

Information regarding the purchase of uniforms through the school approved supplier is available on the website.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school office at this stage if you require any further information.

We look forward to working alongside you as your child/children begin their educational journey at Palmerston Christian School.
