The enrolment process
is easy and straight forward.
Enjoy exploring this website (and our Facebook page) to catch a glimpse of life at RJ. We understand this is an important decision for your family and would be delighted to answer your questions.
Whilst you are always welcome to speak with our Registrar, Mrs Trudy Tildsley, we usually host Open Days once a Term in Terms 1, 2 and 3 at each Campus. Our Open Days provide an opportunity for you to meet with the Principal, the respective Heads of Primary/Secondary and to have a comprehensive tour of the relevant Campus. You may also like to view our prospectus.
If you are not able to attend one of our Open Days, we can also provide you with a personal tour through the relevant Campus.
Have you already decided to enrol your child/ren?
Wonderful! We're excited for you. However, whilst this is an excellent decision, please act promptly (at least a year before your child starts Kindergarten or Year 7) to avoid disappointment!
Step One: Read the Conditions of Enrolment
Step Two: Complete an Application for Enrolment and a Request for External Support Services for each child. The Application lists the relevant supporting paperwork e.g. birth certificate, immunisation statement.
Step Three: Deliver the above paperwork together with the supporting documents to the Oakhurst Campus (documents may be delivered to the Marsden Park Campus if this is more convenient for you). Alternatively, you may email the documents to email@example.com.
Step Four: Pay the $50 non-refundable Application Fee (per student). EFTPOS is available and details may be given over the phone if emailing the documentation.
Step Five: Our Registrar will review your Application and confirm your child's inclusion on the waiting list.
Step Six: Be patient. The Principal will review your Application as positions becomes available. Once the Principal has determined to offer a place, you will be contacted for an enrolment interview with the Principal or delegate. This often includes a personal tour of the relevant Campus. A slightly different process occurs with Kindergarten enrolments.
As a guide, Year 7 Applications are reviewed in Term 2 of the preceding year. If a Year Group is already at capacity, your Application will remain on the waiting list until a position becomes available.
Kindergarten families are usually welcomed in a small group setting in conjunction with a School Readiness Session. These sessions are held at the end of Term 2 and the beginning of Term 3 of the preceding year.
Step Seven: Once the School has decided to offer a place for your child, you will be sent a formal Offer of Enrolment together with the Conditions of Enrolment and the Uniform and Presentation Policy.
Step Eight: Sign and return the documents (together with any relevant medical plans) before the due date to the Registrar with the $500 non-refundable Acceptance fee to secure your place. Failure to act promptly, may result in your place being re-allocated to another child.
Step Nine: Relax, knowing your child is in good hands. If your child is commencing in Kindergarten or Year 7 in Term 1, you will be advised of the relevant orientation day/s.
Please note that enrolment priority is given to siblings of current RJ students provided the Application for Enrolment is received before 30 March in the preceding year. Applications for Enrolment received after this date will be added to the waiting list with positions offered based on the date of receipt and the Principal’s discretion.
My four children have different personalities and abilities. At RJ, each of them are given opportunities to thrive and develop in confidence as the person that God has created them to be. My children receive a tremendous level of care from the teachers, care not just for their academics but care for them as a person. They are given opportunities to learn how to be resilient, co-operative and how to love and care for others.
