Information for Prep 2021 and Prospective Families
An Enrolment Pack is available from the school office for any families interested in sending their child to Our Lady of the Way. An Open Evening was held on Wednesday March 18 2020 as part of our celebration of Catholic Education Week where families were able to tour the school with the School Captains. School Tours can usually be conducted at any time during the school year for families new to the area or interested in applying for a position at the school. However, the COVID-19 restrictions placed on schools has meant that only students are permitted on site so no tours can currently be held.
An Enrolment Information Evening that was to be held on Wednesday April 15 has been postponed along with with School Tours that were planned for Thursday April 23 2020 & Wednesday April 29 2020 due to COVID-19. Other important dates and events for Prep 2021 are listed on the flyer below.
Applications for Prep 2021 will close on Friday May 1 2020 and as limited places are available, priority will be given in accordance with our Enrolment Policy and the order in which applications are received by the school. Offers for Prep 2021 will be sent out on Thursday June 4 2020. Interviews with families and prospective students will be held later in the year when restrictions are lifted.
We accept enrolments from Catholic families in the Parish of Kingsbury and surrounds, as well as students from other Christian backgrounds. Families are welcome to enrol their child once they have reached 3 years of age.
A copy of our School Brochure, Enrolment Policy and Application Form are available for download below.
School Fees are charged as a Family Fee. The Family School Fee in 2020 is $1650 per family, with $50 refunded if you attend a working bee. There is also a fee levy for each student to cover the cost of items such as the swimming program, excursions, IT equipment, visiting groups and performers, the Arts program, the Library program, as well as the Sports programs and equipment. Onsite Guitar and Keyboard lessons are available for families who are interested.
Our Lady of the Way and Kingsbury Primary School share a Before & After School Care Program, as well as a Holiday Care Program. Our Lady of the Way also provides the Sporting Schools Program one night a week after school as an additional sports opportunity for all students.
As we have small class sizes, we are often able to welcome new enrolments from Prep to Year 6 any time throughout the year. Our community is an inclusive community, and we continue to be a welcoming and friendly school which supports families in nurturing the learning and development of their children.
