Children need to be 4 years of age by 1 January to commence Kinder. Children commencing Prep need to be 5 years of age by 1 January of the Prep year.
Pre-Kindergarten orientation sessions are held for students and their families in the November prior to commencing School the following year. The dates for these sessions are provided to families following confirmation of Kindergarten placements.
St Therese’s fees and levies are set annually. School fees and levies are necessary to supplement State and Commonwealth grants, provide sufficient funds to operate the school, and provide support for the educational environment and structure of the school.
There may be some families who don’t enrol their children in Catholic schools because of concerns about the level of fees and levies charged.
Catholic schools are accessible to all families willing to support the Catholic ethos regardless of their personal, financial and pastoral circumstances. No child will be denied a place in a Catholic school because of financial hardship.
Families who are interested in Catholic education, and feel they could benefit from financial support, are encouraged to contact the School. All enquiries are managed sensitively and adhere to the privacy legislation.
The majority of our students continue their education at one of the Catholic colleges located in and around Hobart. St Therese’s is a feeder school for these Colleges and families interested in continuing within the Catholic education system of schools and colleges can find their local Catholic colleges on the Tasmanian Catholic Education Office website.
