St Patrick's is a community which warmly welcomes student enrolments from all faith backgrounds. Parents/guardians of students at St. Patrick's School are required to give an understanding that they will respect the life, nature and identity of the school.
Children must be 5 years of age on or before 30 April of the year starting school. Birth Certificate, Immunization History Statements and Baptismal Certificate (for those who are Catholic) are required on enrolment.
The Principal is available to help with any questions or queries you may have in regard to selecting a school for your child. Parents/guardians are also welcome to contact the school to make arrangements to arrange a tour of the school.
The decision to choose a school for your child is an important one. We wish you and your family well in this significant decision making process.
The Enrolment Process
To ensure an equitable enrolment process of students at St. Patrick’s School, the following procedure will be followed for all new expression of interest and formal enrolments.
Prospective parents are encouraged to view our website content and check out our Facebook page St Patrick’s School, Nhill facebook.com/stpatricksnhill
Kindergarten to Foundation enrolments
We will provide all kindergarten families with an information pack, which includes enrolment forms, at the time of the organised kinder visits.
Interested parents should contact the school to arrange a suitable time for a school tour and a meeting with the Principal (depending upon Government regulations at the time).
Completed enrolment forms are required to be provided to the school by the end of Term 3.
Parents and prospective students will be invited to return to the school for an interview, following which the Principal will be in a position to confirm or deny the enrolment (a completed enrolment form is a prerequisite to admission, but not a guarantee of admission).

*The planned Kinder visits to each of the three Nhill schools have been cancelled due to ongoing Government restrictions on visits to schools. Each school will instead be hosting online information sessions. Our information session will be on Thursday 2 September, with details to be provided in the near future. It is hoped that we will be able to conduct visits early in Term 4.
Other year level enrolments
We are happy to accept enrolment enquiries for all year levels at any time of the year. Please contact the school by telephone, or call into the school office, to make arrangements.
