ENROLLING AND EXITING STUDENTS YEAR 7 2011
Applications for Year 7 2011 students need to be lodged as soon as convenient. This includes students who have a sister already completing her studies at St Columba’s College. Please contact the Registrar on 9331 9128 or visit the website to request an application form be sent.
Early notification of students intending to leave St Columba’s College would be greatly appreciated as planning for 2010 is in full swing. There are families who are seeking places for their daughters at the College in Years 8 – 12. We would like to be able to finalise any possible enrolments for resource planning but also, more importantly, for those students on the waiting list to know if there is a place available or not for 2010. The notification process is for a formal letter or email of notification to be sent to the Principal, Ms April Honeyman. GAIL HARRIS COLLEGE REGISTRAR
