Enrolment Policy

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 2017 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.


Overseas 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.
