The best time to see our school is when it is in action. If you are interested in seeing what Our Lady of Hope can offer your child, then you are warmly invited to contact the school for a tour. Our Principal would love to take you on a private tour of our school and answer any questions you may have.

If a private tour of the school is not for you, then group Principal Tours are held each school term.

We accept all families regardless of their faith background and therefore you do not need to be Catholic to enrol at our School.

Frequently asked questions about enrolling my child at Our Lady of Hope:

When is the best time to enrol my child?

We accept enrolments at any stage throughout the year for new Reception intake, and transfers from other schools.

However, it is stongly encouraged to enrol your child at least 12 months prior to them starting Reception, and any younger siblings. The earlier you enrol your child, the greater chance you have of ensuring a place.

At what age can my child start school?

Our Lady of Hope School offers a Reception intake at the beginning of the School Year and also at the beginning of Term 3 (mid-year intake).

Children who turn 5 on or before the 30th of April are eligible to start school at the beginning of the year.

Children who turn 5, between May the 1st and October 31st are eligible to start school at the beginning of Term 3, or they can commence at the beginning of the following year.
