At Rosebank College, there are three stages in the enrolment process:
- Application for student enrolment The prospective family submits an application form and $220 non-refundable application fee. Application must include copies of birth certificate/passport/visa/certificate of citizenship, latest full school report and latest NAPLAN results (if appropriate). Applications are accepted on the condition that student behaviour, attendance and commitment to school work are of a high standard and all required documentation is supplied. The College reserves the right not to accept an application. Submission of an enrolment form does not constitute that an enrolment contract has been entered into.
- Pre-enrolment approval If the prospective student is a sibling of a current student or a child of an ex-student, the prospective student may receive a pre-enrolment once the application has been processed.
- Principal’s Interview and Confirmation of Enrolment All eligible applicants are placed on a waiting list in priority order (see below) to be interviewed by a member of the Enrolment Team, once Year 5 NAPLAN results and their Semester One Year 5 report are received by the College. If the interview is successful, families receive an enrolment offer in writing. A student learning contract is signed during the interview. Families return the acceptance slip to the College and pay the $475.00 enrolment fee. The student is then enrolled at Rosebank College and is included in the Orientation and Induction Program.
Placement on the waiting list
Placement on the waiting list is secured once applicants:
I. Provide a completed enrolment form
II. Submit all relevant documentation including NAPLAN results and full school reports
III. Pay the $220 non-refundable application fee
IV. Application is accepted Provision of the above documents and the payment of the application fee do not bind the College to enter a final contract for enrolment. A place on the waiting list does not guarantee enrolment.
Securing an enrolment place
Two years prior to beginning in Year 7, all applicants receive a letter reminding them to supply the College with their Year 5 NAPLAN results and latest full school report. Shortlisted applicants are invited for an interview with a member of the Enrolment Team. Successful applicants are offered an enrolment place in writing soon after the interview. Successful applicants have two weeks to accept their enrolment offer and secure it with a $475.00 enrolment fee. In August of the year prior to commencement, Year 7 students and parents are invited to the first of the Orientation experiences. The second Orientation experience is a full day of school for students only. In July of the year prior to commencement, Year 11 students and parents are invited to attend a Subject Information Evening to secure their subject choices.
Payment of fees
All school fees are payable on or before the payment due date. If a family does not pay school fees and no arrangements have been agreed to and complied with, a sibling of that family cannot be enrolled at the College the following year until the matter is finalised. Failure to make a payment of fees or abide by a financial arrangement made with the College may result in placing the account with a Debt Collector. The signatories of the enrolment contract are jointly responsible for payment of that student’s fees. This is a contractual obligation.
The College withdrawal policy is applicable once the enrolment fee has been paid and enrolment has been secured. If the students withdraws from the College prior to commencement of school the entire enrolment fee is forfeited. Once a student has started at the College, notification in writing, advising the student withdrawal must be given to the Principal. A full term or 10 weeks notice (whichever is the shortest) is required, otherwise a full term’s fees will be charged. This applies to students leaving mid-term.
Current families are eligible for sibling discounts on tuition fees when siblings are attending concurrently.
