Our School

Enrolment Application

All students are funded through a scholarship program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from disadvantaged families. We offer up to five scholarships to new Kindergarten students each year.

Scholarships are for the seven years of primary school – Kindergarten through to Year 6. After this, students are typically offered scholarships for their secondary years to St Andrew’s Cathedral School.

Scholarship funds are provided by government grants, individual and corporate donors.
