    Default Catholic primary school offers - when??

    Hi there. I enrolled my girls into st clares catholic school in Tville, qld, and am just wondering when the first round of 'non catholic student' offers come out? The school advised me it's all the same for all catholic schools around ( not sure if thats just sane thru all of tville or all of qld)... so wondered if anyone knew? I'm desperate to find out lol

    Thanks!!

    Not sure I know most catholic schools have already done all prep interviews so assume the catholic spots have been filled so I'd imagine quite soon they would fill what spots are left

    im in NSW and applications opened up for this particulr school in May for that month only; i picked up the form and was told there s only a limited numer of spaces left as HEAPS of people have applied already (picked up form on 10th May anyways i put her form in on the 28th May & was even told not to expect a place here as they already have over the amount of applications forno: of places avalible. i still had an interview the week later; and was told i will get a letter in the mail in the last week of term 2 informing me when she would be required to attend school (positive words by the principle!) (so interview was more getting to know our family, bout the school what it will offer our DD; not why we want to send our DD here etc). i recieved her acceptance letter this week (yay). so i even wonder if anyone is declined acceptance into a catholic school, well that school anyways and just say heaps of people apply just to make the school look good? LOL

    IMO if your not going to be accepted they would let you know ASAP so you can make other arrangements for school.

    as i also applied as a back up at another school (public) (incase my 1st choice was not accepted) and was told they will let me know if i am accepted but the end of the term also; her application was declined and was notified within 5 days, not the 4 weeks later. in a way no loss for me :-) thought i would let you know

    good luck! hope you hear ++ news

    I'm in Townsville at a Catholic school. First round offers (Catholic families) will be accepted by September. Second round offers will be once all families have accepted or declined. They will then offer to non-Catholic families who live in the area, then to non-Catholic families outside of that area. First-round places will have been posted out during this term and they have all of next term to get back to them.
