Enrolments

We understand choosing a school for your child is a very important decision and we will do everything we can to help you with that process.

Enrolment at Pedare is open to all students regardless of their religious background with the expectation families support the Christian values and programmes of the College. Pedare enjoys a diverse and multicultural community, and this diversity is celebrated in our College prayer through the words;

“…knowing that our diversity inspires creativity and builds community strength.”

Enrolment is accepted at any level with the main entry year levels being Reception, Year 6 and Year 8. Early application is recommended as there are strong waiting lists for some year levels.
