Families seeking enrolment of their child into Prep for 2023 are invited to complete an Application for Enrolment, available from our website or alternatively you can collect an application package from our school office.
As we are anticipating a continued strong demand for Prep placements for 2024, it is important that applications are received as soon as possible. Interviews for 2024 Prep placements will commence in early 2023.
Please note that if your child is a sibling of a current St Francis Xavier’s student you will still be required to complete an enrolment application for your child.
Starting Prep is an exciting time for both little ones and their parents. St Francis Xavier’s School strives to make the transition to “big school” as smooth and enjoyable as possible for both the youngest members of our community and their parents, as their child enters the first year of formal schooling.
Our Prep Transition Program is an integral way of how we work in partnership with you for a successful start to your child’s schooling life. Dates for our 2023 program for Prep 2024 will be released later in the year.
To help you and your child to be as prepared as possible for Prep is to follow Catholic Education’s BePrepped4Prep Facebook page. Once you have liked the page, make sure you follow the page ‘first’ rather than ‘by default’ to ensure you never miss any of the informative and helpful tips.
For more information on starting Prep, go to Cairns Catholic Education’s website.
