Who We Are

In reflection of our wonderful College since our humble beginnings in 1982, we have created a one-page document that highlights who we are, what our core purpose and mission is, and recognises some amazing achievements from the past year.

When do I need to apply?

We have growing wait pools across many year levels, so it is never too early to apply. To assist with our enrolment planning, we recommend submitting an application to enrol at least two years prior to your child’s desired start year. 


What happens to my application if there is no vacancy in the desired grade?

Where there are no positions available in a particular grade, your application will be added to the wait pool. If a position becomes available, parents will be notified, and an enrolment interview will be offered. Applications remain on file and valid, unless they are withdrawn by request. 


What is the cost to apply to enrol my child?

A non-refundable application fee of $50 applies for each child you wish to apply to enrol. A non-refundable enrolment fee of $250 per child is payable within two weeks of an enrolment being offered, capped at $500 when enrolling multiple children at the same time.

I already have a child at the school, will siblings automatically have a place?

If you already have a child attending GPCC then siblings are given priority consideration in the enrolment process. To be considered for this type of preferential enrolment, we recommend submitting an application for siblings at least two years prior to the intended start year. 


What age should my child be to enrol in Kindergarten?

Applicants for Kindergarten should turn 5 years of age by April 30 of the year of enrolment.

Kindergarten interviews are held in April and May the year prior to enrolment. If you are unsure about your child’s year of entry into Kindergarten, please contact our Registrar. 


I’d like my child to change schools. Is it possible to enrol now?

Our key entry year levels are Kindergarten and Year 7. If you are seeking enrolment for a different grade, then please contact our Registrar to discuss your needs.

Applications for immediate commencement will be reviewed and actioned as soon as possible, provided there is a vacancy in the grade required. 


Does my child have to sit an entrance test?

GPCC is not a selective school so your child will not be asked to sit an entrance test prior to being offered a place. Literacy and numeracy skills are assessed during the interview and orientation process to assist with class placement and planning. 


Will my child be able to attend an orientation day prior to attending GPCC?

To ensure a smooth transition for children starting school, GPCC has an extensive orientation program allowing children to become familiar with their new learning environment prior to commencing. Orientation programs are tailored to the needs of both Primary and Secondary students. 


Do I need to re-apply when my child is moving from Year 6 to Year 7 at GPCC?

If your child is enrolled in Year 6 at GPCC, you are not required to reapply for Secondary school. We anticipate our Year 6 students will continue their Secondary schooling at the College.
