Brisbane Catholic Education Policy
When enrolling students, BCE schools give priority to those who are baptised Catholic or, if enrolling in an ecumenical school, baptised in the faith of sponsoring churches. Schools may also enrol students from other faith traditions whose families demonstrate that they share the expressed values of the school and who are willing to support and contribute to the school's vision and ethos.
St John's Policy
At St John's College, we will provide quality education in an environment that nurtures children in their Catholic faith. St John's aims to accept every baptised Catholic child.
The College recognises that it has an obligation to respect all religious beliefs. Parents and students of other faiths must support the Catholic ethos of the school. It is important that the Catholocity of the College be maintained, across the whole school population and in any year level.
The following Brisbane Catholic Education policies, regulations and guidelines are followed at a school level and can be viewed on the Brisbane Catholic Education website: www.bne.catholic.edu.au
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:
Late applications will be considered only 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.
