Enrolment FAQs

I’d like to come and see the Darlington and/or Glen Forrest Campus. Can I do that?

Yes, you can book in for a tour of either campus by calling us on 9298 9100. We have two tours each term and you can find out the dates by going to our Campus Tours page.

How do I register my child for a place at Helena College?

Complete a Student Registration Form and return it to the Enrolment Office. Registration forms can be mailed out as part of our registration package, or downloaded by clicking HC Registration Form. A copy of your child’s birth certificate, and the $110 registration fee is payable. A receipted copy of the form, and a letter explaining the enrolment process, will be emailed to you, as confirmation of your registration. The registration fee is non-refundable.

What are the main intake years for enrolment at the College?

At the Darlington Campus, the main intake year is Kindy (with a maximum of 20 places) and Year 5 (with a second class offering an additional 24 places). At the Glen Forrest Campus, Year 6 is our main intake year but we do accept students in other year levels where there are places available. This also applies to the Darlington Campus, where places are available. To maximise the chance of being offered a place at the Glen Forrest Campus, parents are advised to register their child for a place in Year 5. This will ensure your child is waitlisted for Year 5, if all Year 6 places have been filled.

Do I need to complete two registration forms if I’m not sure which campus I want for my child? 

No, only one form is required. If you change your preference, your child’s Registration Form can be transferred between campuses. Call us on 9298 9100 to speak with the Registrar regarding registrations and enrolments for Kindy-Year 12.

If my child is registered at the Darlington Campus but a place doesn’t come up as the years go by, do I then need to register at the Glen Forrest Campus?

No, if a place hasn’t become available at the Darlington Campus, your child will automatically be included in the Glen Forrest Campus enrolment register for a place in Year 6 in the appropriate year.

FAQWhen will I know if my child has a place?

The interview and enrolment process for Kindy and Year 5 take place in the year prior to enrolment. Parents are contacted progressively according to their child’s priority on the enrolment register.

The interview and enrolment process for Year 6 begins when the students are in Year 4.  Parents are contacted progressively according to their child’s priority on the enrolment register.
