The Australian school year begins late January.
Children born between 1 July 2013 - 30 June 2014 are eligible for Prep in 2019.
Children born between 1 July 2014 - 30 June 2015 are eligible for Prep in 2020.

Children must be 5 years old by 30 June in the year they enrol. Prep is the first year of compulsory schooling (from 2017) in Queensland and it is expected that Prep students attend full-time. You can delay their entry by one year if you feel they are not ready, but when they start school, they should still start in the Prep year.
If you would like the school to post an enrolment pack to you the year before your child commences Prep, please complete the 'expression of interest form' and send it to OLR.
Enrolments for all children enrolling for the first time at OLR cannot be confirmed until documentary evidence of a child's date of birth has been submitted. A birth certificate or extract is required. A copy of the child's Baptismal Certificate and Australian visa are also required (if applicable).
Our enrolment policy has been formulated in keeping with the mission and purpose of a Parish Catholic school and current position in relation to buildings, facilities, resources and staffing. OLR is a large Archdiocesan primary school with an enrolment in 2018 of just over 470 pupils in Prep-Year 6.
The population of the Western Suburbs is growing rapidly and there continues to be a strong demand for enrolments at OLR.
Our initial point for enrolment is Prep, which is offered on a full-time basis.
Children will not be excluded from OLR for financial reasons, related to the inability of the family to pay fees. Such commitment from the Parish is conditional upon the family adhering to the terms of the school fee remission process managed by the school. The process is characterised by justice and equity for all and pastoral care for the family in need. It is an expectation that all families make some contribution towards fees.
The enrolment of students with special needs will be considered in accordance with Brisbane Catholic Education's Policy on Enrolment and Support Procedures for Students with Special Needs. This policy takes into account, and is in accordance with, Brisbane Catholic Education Administration Guidelines on the Enrolment of Students.
The school does not maintain registration for the enrolment of full fee paying overseas students. Refer to the Brisbane Catholic Education site for a list of schools which enrol these students.
OLR runs a Prep Readiness Program for children commencing their first year of school. The Program is to ease children into a larger, independent learning environment with the support of key staff. The successful Program is run in the second half each year.
This year's course is for children start Prep in 2020. The course is open to any child who will commence Prep in 2020, not just OLR students. To book your child's place go to "Ready Set Prep Bookings" contact Rita or Dee at the school office for more details on 07 3378 2412.
