Enrolment Journey

Enrolling for Kindergarten 2022 and beyond

 An exciting opportunity for your child

If you are inspired by our love for learning and would like your child to experience the many opportunities on offer at NBCS within a nurturing environment, we invite you to register your interest by following the steps below.

 

"We, as a family, just want to thank you for the incredible innovation, kindness and perseverance you have shown this year during COVID. It has been a really tough one and you have handled it with strength of character, faith, steadfastness and professionalism”

NBCS Parent

“As the year ends, our family are just brimming over with joy and thankfulness to be part of NBCS and to have gained so much from your teaching, leadership and example this year”

NBCS Parent

“You have each embodied the goals of NBCS in helping our children to love learning and strive for excellence. There is absolutely no price that can be placed on that gift and the long labours of your year are well invested and so valued”

Juliette, NBCS Parent

"I learnt compassion, resilience, humility, honesty, trust, loyalty, kindness, work ethic, accountability, perspective, positivity, encouragement, and empathy. These have helped me now and how I approach life"

Alumni Graduate

"What a fantastic experience my son has had at NBCS to date! It has truly been a remarkable start for him because NBCS has been so inclusive. He's off to a flying start again this year and has even set himself an academic goal for this year!”

Zoe, NBCS Parent

"As parents we value how our school cares for, guides and helps grow our children, far beyond their teaching role. We see NBCS as partnering with us as parents to grow our kids' love of learning, their friends, their school community and our world. We believe NBCS has a huge opportunity to help shape our students as future leaders to love and make their own contribution to our world. Each week we pray for our teachers, our student leaders, all our students and their families."

How to Enrol

1. Book a School Tour

Meet our Heads of School and get a better understanding of what our campus feels like and what we have to offer at NBCS. Consider Current Enrolment Updates to ensure that we are accepting applications for the year you are considering. You can book a school tour online or watch our Virtual Tours

2. Lodge Application

Complete and submit the online Application to Register form, together with the non-refundable Application Fee of $270.

Please note, you can partially complete and save this form and return to it anytime to complete the application. You will need copies of your child’s birth certificate and passport or evidence of Australian citizenship/visa documentation and your child’s school reference contact details.

On receiving your Application form, we will add your child’s name and contact details to the list of prospective students for the relevant year. You will receive confirmation that your application has been successfully lodged. Your position on the waitlist is determined by the date of this application.

 

3. Student Interview

If you wish to proceed with your child’s application, prior to their desired year of entry you will be sent the Enrolment Interview Questionnaire Form to complete and return by the specified date with copies of your child’s two most recent school reports and NAPLAN results (if applicable), and any specialist reports, specialist assessment reports, or individual learning plans. We will select students to interview based on our enrolment criteria and the order in which applications were received.

Should your child be successful in reaching the interview stage, we will invite you to attend an interview with your child. For Year 7, the enrolment process begins two years prior to your desired year of entry and for all other year groups it begins one year prior. Please note that an interview does not guarantee an offer of a place.

4. Offer of Place

If your child has been successful, you will receive an official Letter of Offer, along with the Student Enrolment Information Form to complete. To accept the offer, you are required to sign the Enrolment Contract and pay the non-refundable Enrolment Fee and Enrolment Bond. If enrolling in Year 7 you will also be required to pay a Year 7 Placement Fee. These fees must be paid before the expiry date of the offer to confirm acceptance. The fees are non-refundable should your child not start at NBCS.

We will advise you if we are offering a place, if your child is to remain on the waiting list, or if we are not able to consider your child for a place.

School Fees

Annual fees are levied equally over Terms 1-4 for Kindergarten to Year 11, and equally over Terms 1-3 for Year 12. Fees are due Friday of Week 1 each Term.

Fees include most camps and non-elective sport activities. There may be additional cost to parents for activities such as particular camps, extra-curricular programs, excursions and elective subjects.

Parents are required to notify the School Office of any changes of name or address, and to ensure the School Office has a record of current contact information, including active telephone numbers and email addresses.

 

School fees must be paid by the due date on each invoice, including school tuition and other ancillary charges. If school fees are not paid within the period specified, administration fees will be charged, and the School has the right to suspend or terminate enrolment.

Repayment of the debt cannot be refused by reason of any allegation or complaint relating to the services provided by the School nor by reason of any set off or cross claim made against the School. The collection process for any outstanding fees may involve placing the matter into the hands of a Solicitor.
