ENROLING at st francis, urana
A Statement of Belief
“The Church establishes her own schools because she considers them as a privileged means of promoting the formation of the whole person since the school is a centre in which a specific of the world, of man, and of history is developed.”
(The Catholic School, 1977)
St Francis Xavier’s School, Urana was established to fulfil the educational needs of the Catholic community it serves.
Children of non Catholic and non Christian religions are entitled to enrolment provided there is room, and provided the enrolment is sanctioned by the Principal and Parish Priest.
Parents of non Catholic children are to be informed of their obligations and duties in relation to the religious education of their children prior to their enrolment.
All parents, on seeking enrolment for their children, will be given the appropriate enrolment form and school information handbook.
Inability to pay schools fees does not prevent parents from enrolling their children at this School.
Diocesan policy is that enrolments are accepted for children turning five prior to 1st June. Parents wishing to enrol children whose birthday falls between 1st June and 31st July must be counselled by the Principal.
Parents are required to sign an acknowledgement recognising the increased difficulties younger children historically face during their schooling.
