We have growing waitlists across many year levels, so it is never too early to register. The sooner you register the higher up the list your child will be. Some parents choose to register their children many years prior to attendance (even from the birth of their child).
Contact our Enrolments Team to check availability of places.
A non-refundable registration fee of $180 applies for each child you wish to register. Registering your child will give you greater assurance that there will be a place at the school when the time for enrolment arrives.
A non-refundable enrolment fee of $700 per child is payable within two weeks of an enrolment being confirmed.
A partially refundable entrance fee of $2500 per family is payable within two weeks of an enrolment being confirmed. $1250 of the entrance fee is refundable when the last child in the family leaves the school, subject to parents having paid all money due to the school and otherwise having complied with the conditions of enrolment.
We are an inclusive, non-selective school so unless you are applying for one of our scholarship positions, 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 orientation or induction process to inform the planning of learning programs.
If you already have a child attending CCGS then siblings have enrolment priority. Where a waitlist applies, siblings are automatically placed ahead of children who have no siblings at the school. Make sure you register each child for peace of mind as siblings can only be admitted where vacancies exist.
To ensure a smooth transition for children starting school, CCGS has an extensive orientation experience where each child has the opportunity to visit our campus many times to gradually relate to their new purpose-built learning environment. Parents also have time to meet the key people and begin initial relationships. The welcoming experience is matched to the needs of older children joining the school and an orientation day is always part of that experience.
In general, children should have turned five by March 31 of their Kindergarten year. Kindergarten interviews are held in May the year prior to enrolment to discuss any questions you may have. If you are unsure about your child’s year of entry into Kindergarten please contact our Enrolments Team on +61 2 4367 6766.
