Does my child need to be Catholic to enrol at St Patrick’s?

No. Our school has a special care and responsibility for the children of Catholic families. However, we are also charged with the responsibility to take the Good News of Jesus to all who are open to it. In choosing to enrol your children at St Patrick’s, parents and guardians agree to respect and support the Catholic identity of the school and its role in the parish, and to acknowledge the importance of Religious Education for their children.

Enrolment Process and Policy

In recent years the Catholic Diocese has received unprecedented demand for school entry across our Diocesan Schools. This demand, combined with the desire to offer families a pathway for their children from kindergarten through to Year 12, has led to the Diocese revising and adjusting the Enrolment Policy.

The policy sets out the prioritisation for enrolment in schools and applies to all students seeking enrolment at a Catholic School in the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle (CDMN).
