Enrolment Guidelines

Thank you for considering St John's College, Nambour for your child’s secondary education.

Please open the link to Catholic Education Council Policy Statement: Click Here

The process of enrolment is to be guided by principles of justice and equity.  Consideration for enrolment of students will be based on a combination of the following:

  • Catholic baptism

  • Catholic families

  • Acceptance of the ethos and mission of a Catholic school

  • Family and sibling involvement at the school

  • Parents and child with parish involvement

  • Attendance at a Catholic primary school

  • School support eg. enthusiasm, commitment of student and involvement of parents in school life

  • Reference from primary school - especially regarding appropriate relationships and behaviour

  • Late applications will be considered if places are available.  This also applies to late applications from Catholic families and siblings

  • An interview does not necessarily mean that a place will be offered

  • If a place is not available, your child's name will be held on the waiting list unless you notify the College that you do not want to proceed with your application

NB:  Outstanding fee debt at other Brisbane Catholic Education schools must be resolved prior to enrolment confirmation.

Please return the Application for Enrolment form and all the supporting documentation required on the checklist to the College office. You will be contacted once we have received your fully completed application to arrange an interview.  (Feeder schools for Year 7 2018 students have kindly offered to send the Principal’s Reference to St John’s College on your behalf if you ask them to complete the form for your son/daughter).
