Thank you for your interest in St Michael’s School Ashburton. We invite all prospective families to visit prior to enrolment. We hold three Open Days in March where guided tours are available by our School Leaders; bookings are not required for these. If you would like to see the school at any other time during the year, tours are available by appointment through the school office. Please contact us on 9885 3105 to arrange a suitable time.

To be eligible to enrol in Prep, children must turn age five by 30th April in the year of commencement. If you are interested in enrolling your child for an immediate start or mid-way through the year, we are happy to accommodate this provided there are places available. Please contact the school office as soon as possible to discuss availability.

Please refer to our Enrolment Policy for more information on enrolment intake and procedure.

Enrolment Process

A completed Enrolment Application Form along with supporting documents (Birth Certificate, Baptismal Certificate, Immunisation History Statement, etc.) can be submitted to the school at any stage up to the due date. Families are advised to lodge their application with the school in the year preceding commencement. A non-refundable $100 application fee applies to all new St Michael’s families, which should accompany your application lodgement. Enrolment forms are available from the school office or can be downloaded from the school website.

Following application lodgement, families have an interview with the Principal before a Letter of Offer is sent out to finalise enrolment. These interviews assist us in getting to know you and your child, and allow for any additional learning needs to be determined and considered. During the enrolment process, we ask for as much information as possible to ensure that all relevant considerations are made, and so that the school and family have the same understanding and expectations.

Places must be accepted in writing and a non-refundable $200 placement fee must also be made. This amount will be deducted from the commencement year’s school fees.

Parents/caregivers will receive information about their child’s orientation program in Term 4.
