Frequently Asked Questions
What do I have to do to ensure my daughter has the best chance of being offered a place at Mount St Benedict College?
Following the Parent Information Evening for parents of Year 5 students in early March, complete the Application for Enrolment, enclose copies of the requested documents and return to the College by the due date.
What documents are required?
- Birth Certificate
- Proof of Australian Residency (if born overseas)
- Baptismal Certificate
- Year 3 NAPLAN Test Results (or more recent)
- Year 4 School Report (or more recent)
What if I am not offered a position?
If you are not offered a position your daughter will be automatically placed onto the Waiting List.
What is the due date?
Friday 23 March 2018 for Year 7 2020.
When and how will I know if my Application has been successful?
Letters of offer will be mailed in early June. Your acceptance with deposit will be required by Friday 15 June 2018. Please note that the College Office is closed during school holidays from Friday 29 June to Friday 20 July 2018.
When will the second round of offers be made?
This is reliant upon cancellations. Unfortunately some families choose to wait until late in the year to inform the College of their intention to relinquish their enrolment position.
Offers will be made to those families on the Waiting List as vacancies arise.
Why was I not offered a place in the first round?
The College can only offer a limited number of places each year. Our Enrolment Policy makes provision for daughters of ex-students and siblings of students currently attending the College and the date of the initial Registration for Waiting List is consulted.
Will I be called to an interview?
Not all applicants will be called to an interview. However, if we require further information we will telephone you to arrange an interview with the Principal, Mrs Maria Pearson.
