An acknowledgement is emailed to confirm receipt of the application.

The complete enrolment application with all supporting documents is submitted to the Principal for review.
The Principal assesses enrolment criteria and space availability.
Preference and Non-Preference Enrolment
To maintain the special character of Jireh Christian School, priority is given to students whose families demonstrate commitment to the Christian faith. Unfortunately, if a family is unable to supply a reference from a church pastor/minister/senior leader, we are legally permitted to enrol only 5% of our total roll as non-preference students.
Should the Principal decide to:
- proceed to interview – notification will be made by phone and followed up by email to schedule an interview.
- not to proceed to interview – a letter declining your application will be sent.
Interviews are an important step in the school’s final consideration of your child’s application. The interview is held by the Principal and also provides the opportunity to meet our staff and to ask any necessary questions. An interview typically lasts around 20-30 minutes with preferably both parents and the prospective student in attendance.
Should the decision be made to:
- accept the enrolment application – an acceptance letter will be sent.
- decline the enrolment application – a letter declining your application will be sent.
NOTE: completion of the application forms does NOT guarantee enrolment.
Starter Pack information and forms are sent one term prior to start date, or as close as possible to that time.
Associated forms to be completed and returned, with term in advance payments up to date.
