Enrolment of Children with Special Needs

Before a child with special needs can be enrolled, the 'Enrolment Support Process', under the guidelines of the Brisbane Catholic Education Office, must be carried out. The purpose of such a process is:

  • To investigate the needs of the child; and
  • To determine the suitability of the resources of the school to fit the child's requirements

It is important to realise that if the needs of the child and the resources of the school are not compatible, neither the individual child nor the school would benefit from such an enrolment.​​​
