Starting School This July?
Give your child a great start with free Term 3 & 4 tuition for Mid-Year Reception starters.
Catholic schools across South Australia are offering free mid-year Reception enrolment intake for students who turn five on or before October 31 to reduce the financial burden on families.
When can my child start school?
Most Catholic schools offer two intakes per year for children starting Reception.
Term 1 enrolment – for children who turn five years on or before April 30.
Term 3 enrolment (Mid-Year intake) – for children who turn five years on or before October 31.
Why a Mid-Year intake?
There is a large body of research that shows the benefit of high quality early learning and care experiences for children in their first 1,000 days of life, and in the years prior to school.
Students who start in Term 3 are likely to spend 18 months in Reception before progressing to Year 1.
Reception students who join a 2021 mid-year intake at a Catholic school will get free tuition in Terms 3 and 4.
This initiative is one of a number announced by the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools (SACCS) to reduce the financial burden on families.
All Diocesan schools will offer the 2021 Term 3 Reception intake to parents free of charge. The free intake includes tuition fees and compulsory charges. It will exclude uniforms and extra-curricular costs.
“While the South Australian community is beginning to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are acutely aware that there are some families who continue to be impacted,” says Dr McGoran, Director, Catholic Education South Australia.
