Early registration of your children is recommended. Registration is achieved by submitting the registration form and fee to secure a place in the enrolment register.
The regular entry points are:
For Junior School – Kindergarten, Pre-Primary and Year 1
For Senior School – Years 7 and 11
There may be the possibility of entry at other times, preferably mid or end of year.
The order of priority for student enrolment at Helena College Senior School is:
- those already enrolled at Helena College Junior School
- those with siblings at the College
- then in order of registration date
For children entering at the regular entry points, an interview and tour of the College will be arranged (usually nine to eighteen months before the nominated commencement) if a position is available. When a casual vacancy becomes available, an interview and tour of the College will be arranged for the next family on the enrolment register.
Following the enrolment interview, an offer of place is mailed with an Enrolment Agreement to sign. On receipt by the College of the signed Agreement and the relevant Enrolment Fee the student’s position is confirmed.
In managing the affairs of the College, Council attempts to maintain fees as low as is possible whilst maintaining the first-class education programs of the College. In special circumstances, temporary bursaries are made available to support members of the school community. See also fees page.
