Whitford Catholic Primary School will contact applicant families as per the following:

  • If you are applying for a Pre-Kindergarten place, the school will contact you the term before your child turns 3 years old.
  • If you are applying for a place to commence in Pre-Primary to Year 6, the school will be in contact if and when a place becomes available.
  • If you are applying for a Kindergarten place, the school will contact you regarding an interview approximately 18 months before commencement.

If a place is available, you will be invited to an interview with the Principal or member of our Senior Leadership Team.

Please note that the interview is for the ‘family’ and at least one parent and the child applying for a place must be present. An application fee of $30 per child is payable at this time.
