​Enrolment FAQs

​​

Are there positions available for my child/ren?

Our school runs at full capacity, and there are no positions available for your children to be enrolled immediately. ​

How do I join the waiting list?

Use the link above to complete an online application. Once you have completed this, you will receive an automatically generated email requesting further documents. Please send these documents through within 7 days to psipenrolments@bne.catholic.edu.au. We will process your child/ren's application and they will be placed on our waiting list.

My child is on the waiting list. What now?

Your child will remain on the waiting list for consideration should a position become available.

When will I be updated about my child's place on the waiting list?

Unfortunately, as we have a high demand for places, we will not be contacting families with updates unless a position is available. We will request school reports and to confirm you are still interested in remaining on the waiting list.

When will I know if I have a place?

There is no set date when you will 'know'. As we run at full capacity, if a position does not become available, then we will not be able to offer your child a place at Siena.

Will I receive a response when I email through my child's supporting documents?

As we receive a high volume of inquiries, we will not respond to emails that provide documentation for a child's application.

Can I book a school tour?

Because our school runs at full capacity, we do not offer tours for prospectives families of children in Year 1 – 6. Tours will be run for prospective Prep families in the year before their child is due to start.

When should I think about enrolling my child for Prep?

Please see the table above for eligibility dates for your child. Roughly 2-3 years before your child is due to start school, we will open a mailing list for you to register your interest. Within 18 months of the enrolment year, we will send families an email to inform them that enrolments are open, and you can submit an application.

Will there be a tour for my child before they start Prep at Siena?

We offer a Prep Tour in the year before your child would be due to start, usually in March before applications close. We will email families on our mailing list, and advertise this via our website and Facebook page. We encourage you to submit your application before this, however you may wish to wait until after the tour.
