@bwrlab FWIW I grew up in Brisbane, moved away for over a decade and came back with school aged kids in December. I enrolled mine no problems in the January a week or so before school went back. The school mine go to isn't the local, but is in the next suburb over.
I can fully understand why you want your kids to go to that private primary. It is a good school and has always had a good reputation. If I was in your shoes, I would be concerned about the travel time and traffic getting to the state school you are considering. It's not just school travel, your kids will make friends with kids who live local to the school and want to get together on weekends for playdates etc.
I *think* I know the catholic school you are referring to. Does it have a royal name? If yes, I don't know anything about it or your local state school. Also I think the state school you are thinking of would be closer than some that I listed earlier.
