Please note that the Open & Information evening will be held on Wednesday 16 March at 7:00pm in the Westcourt Centre, off James Street.

Enrolling to begin Year 7 at the beginning of the year:

The process for enrolling Year 7 students at the beginning of any year commences early the preceding year, generally in March or April.

Prospective students and their parents are invited to attend an Information and Open Evening. Following a brief introduction, groups are escorted around the College to tour the facilities and gain more information about the different teaching areas. The evening is advertised in the local press and usually occurs in April.

Prior to this evening, Year 6 students who attend one of our Catholic primary feeder schools (Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School, St Patrick's Catholic Primary School and Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Primary School) visit our College to have a Taste of Secondairy school at SBSC.

Shortly after the Information and Open Evening, applications are processed and interviews are scheduled for each student, together with at least one parent. Application forms can be downloaded from this website and are included in the Enrolment Packs that are available at the Information and Open Evening or from the main office at the College.

Following these interviews, a formal letter confirming enrolment is sent home.

All new Year 7 students attend an Orientation Day, generally in Novemeber or December of the year prior to commencing.

Enrolling to begin any Year level, to commence at any time.

Prospective families can contact the College at any time and ask to speak to the Personal Assistant to the Principal for information, including an Enrolment Pack, and to arrange a guided tour of the College. The College phone number is (03) 6424 7622.

On submission of an Enrolment Application Form (which can be downloaded from this website and is included in the Enrolment Pack), an interview will be scheduled. A formal letter confirming enrolment will be sent after this.

If your enquiry is prior to the Information and Open Evening, you would be welcome to attend.

On the night you are welcome to introduce yourself to a senior member of staff and we will be able to provide specific information for the level that you are inquiring about.
