Enrolments at St Mark's

StMark's_017 (Mobile).JPGSt Mark’s Catholic Primary School currently caters for students from Prep to Year 6.

St Mark’s Primary School is a faith community that exists to educate young people through the teaching and learning of Gospel values. St Mark’s Primary School draws its enrolments from the local areas of Inala, Forest Lake, Richlands, Darra, Doolandella, Durack, Oxley and Pallara.

The Principal and Leadership team are responsible for the adherence to this policy and relevant Catholic Education Policies and Guidelines.

Parents/Caregivers of St Mark’s students are responsible for adhering to all St Mark’s Catholic School policies.

Enrolment will be offered in the following order of priority:

  1. Children who have brothers and sisters in the school.
  2. Children whose families are part of St Mark’s Worshipping Parish Community and are currently registered in the parish.
  3. Children of Catholic families who have been practising in other parishes and are currently registered in that parish and move to our parish.
  4. Children of Catholic families who are part of neighbouring worshipping communities where there are no Catholic schools.
  5. Children of Catholic families who do not belong to a worshipping community.
  6. Children of families whose faith is not of the Catholic tradition, but who practise their faith.

Enrolment will be reliant on a vacancy existing in the relevant year level.  When a vacancy exists, order of acceptance regarding the above priorities is according to date of enrolment application.

Children will not be excluded from St Mark’s School for economic reasons related to the inability of the family to pay fees.  It would be an expectation, however, that all families would be able to make a contribution towards such fees.

Students with special needs will be enrolled in accordance with Brisbane Catholic Education's Policy on Enrolment and Support Procedures for students with Special Needs.

At the discretion of the School Principal, variation may be made to this policy for pastoral needs of those concerned.
