Enrolment at OLW

Our Lady of the Way Catholic Primary School supports Catholic families to educate their children within a Christian environment. This is our core purpose.

There are families other than Catholic who seek enrolment at our school.

To this end we enrol families who are not Catholic but who value the ethos of the school as expressed in our Mission Statement and are supportive of the Catholic tradition in which the school was founded.

Our Lady of the Way School offers Prep to Year 6. Once families have enrolled their child into Prep, there is no need for an enrolment application from prep to year one.

Because we do not have unlimited vacancies within the school, the criteria below is applied to enrolment applications in the following priority order:

  • (a) Children with brothers and sisters already attending the school
  • (b) Catholic families contributing towards the life and worship of the Parish
  • (c) Families being transferred from another Catholic school
  • (d) Practising Catholics from outside the Parish
  • (e) Non practising Catholic families living within our Parish
  • (f) Families practising another Christian religion
  • (g) Others

The selection process will take into consideration specific pastoral needs of families. The decision to accept or reject an enrolment application always rests with the Principal and the Parish Priest. ​
