Admission Process & Forms
We are currently enrolling children in all year levels. If you are interested in our Early Childhood programs or Prep through to Class 8, our Enrolment Officer can help you. Read on for further information and contact details.
Expression of Interest – All admissions to the school commence with the completion of the CSSK Expression of Interest Form (EOI). This tells us a little about your family and provides necessary details of the child. Where there is no waitlist for the required class, the process will involve meeting with the Principal and Class teacher/s and include Education Support staff where needed. Following this, an Offer of Place is made and Enrolment forms are provided. An EOI form also registers your child for future years in Kinder and/or Prep and also places your child’s name on a waitlist if a particular class is currently full.
Kindergarten Places – Families wishing to be considered for Kindergarten will complete the EOI process to register their child for their desired year of entry. Kinder Offers are made early in the year prior to commencement, in priority order; Families with current siblings within the school, then all new families following that by date order of the completed EOI process. We recommend placing your child’s name on our lists as early as practical.
