Enrolment Process

The Enrolment Process

Once your application is received with all required documentation (see
below), it will be processed according to the MECS enrolment policy. Not
all applications received will result in an enrolment position. Priority
for placements will be given to Christian families, and siblings of children
already attending. Enrolment acceptance is at the absolute discretion of
the Principal, acting in accordance with the enrolment policy.

In most situations, applications will be processed 2 years prior to the entry
year, and your placement may not be confirmed or declined until 1-2 years
prior to entry year.

We will contact you by phone, email or letter to advise you of the outcome
of your application:
1. Your family will be invited to attend an enrolment interview, or
2. Your children’s names will be placed onto the Applications List, to be
processed 2 years prior to entry year, or
3. Your children’s names will be placed on the waiting list for the relevent
classes, or
4. Your application will be declined. It is the policy of the school to not
provide reasons if an enrolment application is declined.

Applications that are successful and result in the offer of an enrolment
position are secured by the payment of a Family Bond ($500) at the time
of acceptance. The bond is refundable at the conclusion of your child/ren’s
education at MECS (subject to conditions - see Focus on Identity booklet).
