Enrolling at Mt St John's Primary Dorrigo 

We extend an invitation to new families to visit our school for a tour. We are very proud of our teachers, our facilities, our families and each other. Families are encouraged to visit Mt St John’s on any normal school day so as to give you a true indication of how our school operates. We look forward to seeing you soon.


Parents looking to enroll their children at Mt St John’s should download an enrollment form (see below). Complete all relevant details for you child on the enrollment form and have copies of the following for the school:

– Birth Certificate
– Baptism Certificate
– Immunisation History
– Legal Orders

Once the enrollment form and documents are sent to the school, an interview with the Principal will be scheduled. You and your child will be required to attend to ensure that the child’s educational needs will be met.


The enrolment policy of Mt St John’s is that children who are baptized in the Catholic faith, living within the Parish are guaranteed a place in our school. Children who have a Catholic background (i.e. a Catholic parent or grandparent) will be enrolled if there are vacancies and after discussion with the Principal. Children who are not Catholic and have no Catholic background will be considered for enrolment with the approval of the Principal and the Parish Priest. Change of school from another local school requires an appointment and interview with the Principal and consultation with the Principal of the previous school.

Families moving into the area are very welcome to ring at any time to organise a tour.
