When to Apply
It is never too early to apply and it is strongly recommended that applications be lodged by the time your daughter commences Year 3.
All applications are held open on a wait list until the offer process begins. This process occurs 2 years prior to the date of commencement, that is, at the start of the calendar year your daughter is in Year 5. It is usual that the majority of offers are extended and confirmed by the end of Term 2 of that year.
