Enrolment at Our Lady Help of Christians

Enrolment Policy

The Catholic parish of South Lismore established Our Lady Help of Christians Parish School to support children’s education in religion and faith.

When seeking enrolment of your child in Our Lady Help of Christians School, you commit to a partnership with the parish priest, school staff, and members of the wider parish school community so that together we can achieve our school’s vision.

Enrolment in a Catholic school is regarded as an integral part of the faith development of young Catholics and their families.

An acknowledgment that all students will participate in the Catholic Religious Education Programme and an acknowledged willingness to commit to this mission and the ethos of a Catholic School is essential when seeking enrolment.

The school will make every reasonable effort to accommodate the particular learning and access needs of every child.
