What is the first step I should take in enrolling my child into St Paul's school?

Download the Enrolment Package (Updated April 2016), fill it in and drop it into the school office. For more information visit the Enrolment Section of this website.

 

Is it possible for us to have a look around the school?

You are most welcome to call and make an appointment to meet with the Principal, or book a time for a tour of the school grounds and buildings.

 

When will I find out whether my child has been accepted into the school?

Enrolment interviews are held in May and June. You will receive a letter or phone call during April informing you of a time for you and your child to come in and meet with the Principal. Written offers of placement will follow in July.

 

How much are the school fees?

There are three levels of annual fees to be paid:

  • Tuition Fees
    $1215 per family per year (payable in 3 instalments ... Term 1 $405, Term 2 $405, Term 3 $405)
     
  • Primary School SEDSO Building and Maintenance Levy 
    $592 per family per year (payable in 3 instalments... Term 1 $197, Term 2 $197, Term 3 $198) 
  • Resource Fee
    $    per student per year

    The Resource Fee covers books, stationery, excursions and incursions. This varies from year to year depending on the needs of the grade. 

Please note that tuition and SEDSO fees are only paid for the first child in each family, resource fees are paid per child.

Payments can be made in full or part using eftpos, BPAY, direct debit, cash, cheque or money order.

If you are experiencing financial hardship and are unable to pay fees, please discuss the situation with the Principal. Your situation will be treated with care and confidentiality and an appropriate arrangement may be made for you.  
No student will be refused enrolment because of a family’s genuine inability to pay fees.

 

What are the opening hours of the school?

School begins at 9:00am. Supervision begins at 8:30 am. The school day concludes at 3:00 pm and parents are expected to collect their children as soon as possible after this time.

 

What areas do school buses service around Camden?

What extra-curricular activities are available at St Paul's?

There are many opportunities for your child to become involved in extra-curricular activities;  St Paul's competes in Public Speaking, chess and J-Rock. We have representative teams in swimming, athletics, cross country, soccer, rugby league, basketball netball and cricket.  Children also have the opportunity to try out for Mackillop (Diocesan representative) teams in several different sports.  We have an environmental group, Student Representative Council, a school choir, school band and music tuition. 

 

Is there an anti-bullying policy in place at the school?

At St Paul's we believe that all members of the community have the right to a learning and working environment free from intimidation, humiliation and harm. We all share a responsibility to create a culture of caring which will not tolerate bullying. We believe that bullying must be taken seriously and is not acceptable in any form. In witnessing Christian values we reject ideas, beliefs and behaviours, which marginalise or victimise people.

St Paul’s welcomes parents and grandparents to help in the classrooms. Each grade will be different, but parents often participate and contribute in the classroom.  This could include helping with reading and literacy programs, mathematics groups, technology, craft, or by offering expertise in a particular area of interest, such as Indigenous Education or Music.
