Our School - Enrolments

Our parish community provides formation in faith through Catholic schooling for all our baptised children. St Philip's Primary School begins to take enrolments in March for the following year. Children must be five years of age, or older, by April 30th of the year they start school. Enrolments are taken all year round for all year levels if places are available. 

School Tours are welcome at any time by appointment.

Please contact our school on 9878 6501 to arrange an appointment and tour with David Gulavin, our Principal.
