Enrolment of Children with Special Needs
Before a child with special needs can be enrolled, the ‘Enrolment Support Process’, under the guidelines of the Brisbane Catholic Education Office, must be carried out. The purpose of such a process is:
·         To investigate the needs of the child; and
·         To determine the suitability of the resources of the school to fit the child’s requirements
It is important to realise that if the needs of the child and the resources of the school are not compatible, neither the individual child nor the school would benefit from such an enrolment.
If application is accepted it is understood that parents comply with the spirit of the school Mission Statement and agree to pay such fees and mandatory levies as set by the local authority.
