Enrolment packages are available for collection from the school office.

PREP ENROLMENTS 2024
Eligibility - children born between July 01 2018 and June 30 2019
St Teresa's Leadership has started planning for 2024 in anticipation of the arrival of our new Prep students. Several students are already indicating their attendance at our school next year, with others possibly unaware that they need to enrol early so the school can make the necessary preparations for their commencement and induction into our school. These early preparations ensure a smooth start to the formal education life of our students. If you are contemplating St Teresa's for your student, don't hesitate to get in touch with the school and arrange an opportunity for an interview, a tour, or an enrolment application.
