FCS is committed to the development of a community environment, where teachers, parents, students and extended community work together as partners in learning with a progressive education and creative arts focus.

2020 Enrolments

Reception

The Registration of Interest for Reception in 2020 is now open. The closing date for applications is week 10, term 2. 

Registration of Interest Form : reception-placement-roi-form

If more than 15 applications are received by the above date, places will be offered based on consideration of the following factors:

  • the chid has siblings currently enrolled in the school
  • the distance of the child’s residence from the school
  • if the child currently attends an associated program at the school – e.g. playgroup
  • any other personal needs, such as transportation, curriculum and social/family links.

 Please note: a Registration of Interest does not guarantee an enrolment at the school.

 The school will notify parents of the outcome of this process by the end of week 9, term 3.

 Unsuccessful applicants or late applications will be placed on an enrolment register and encouraged to approach their local public primary school. Families will be contacted by week 5 in term 4, if a future reception vacancy become available for 2020. 

Year 1 to Year 7

Requests to transfer from other schools, will be considered where there are vacancies, and there are no other families on the school’s enrolment register. Where there are no vacancies parents can request for their child’s name to be placed on the school’s enrolment register. The school will keep a child’s name on the enrolment register for 12 months. The school will consider families on the enrolment register in week 1 term 4  for enrolment at the start of the 2020 school year. Offers for enrolment will be considered based on whether the child has a sibling already attending the school, the distance of the child’s residence from the school and other personal needs.

All offers for enrolment will be in accordance with the school’s Capacity Management Plan (CMP).
