The College Board has set down the following information for parents/guardians of prospective students concerning its general policy with respect to the admission of students:

  1.  The Principal shall determine the number of places to be available at any level for any year. 
  2.  In accepting an offer of a place for a child the parents/guardians complete a contractual agreement with the Board and thereby become subject to the Business Regulations (see below) of the Board 
  3.  In the event of the number of applications at any one level exceeding the number of places available, an order of priority shall be determined having regard to: 
  • (A) The capacity of the College's program to make a contribution to the child's growth and development.
  • (B) A family's previous involvement within the College. 
  • (C) The date an application is received.
  • (D) Any special circumstances. 

Conditions of Enrolment

  1.  An 'Application Form' must be completed for each student applying for enrolment. The form must be accompanied by the application fee which is non-refundable. (Refer to the current Fee Schedule)
  2.  Each prospective student's name will be placed on the College's waiting list on lodgement of the application for entry. Such placement of name does not constitute enrolment. 
  3. In the case of a student transferring from another school, the applicant's most recent academic reports are required prior to enrolment at Overnewton Anglican Community College (OACC). 
  4. The College Principal reserves the right to decline the enrolment of any prospective student without disclosing any reason for doing so. 
  5. All applicants are required to attend an interview at the College prior to commencement. This is to ensure that, as far as possible, those who are accepted are likely to benefit from the courses provided.
  6. When enrolled at the College, students and parents/guardians are bound by the rules and regulations authorised and initiated by the Principal for the good running and conduct of the College. 
  7.  Parents will co-operate with the college authorities in all matters of discipline and obedience of school rules. The College reserves the right to discipline, suspend or expel any student.

  10. Once an Application for Enrolment form has been lodged with OACC, families will receive communication from the College annually to update and maintain their details. However, families will only be contacted with regard to their child's/children's enrolment if and when a position can be offered. 
  11. Permission is given to OACC to contact any of the following people in order to establish their child's readiness for school: kindergarten/preschool director, previous school or child care facilitator. 

Business & Other Regulations

  6. The due date for payment will be specified on the front of each account. In accordance with the state Consumer Credit Code, if the fee is not paid by its stated date an additional Administration of Account fee may be charged. 
  7. Default in the payment of fees and charges renders the person responsible for the fees to legal action for the recovery of unpaid fees or other charges, with legal costs added to the debt. 
  8. One full term's notice in writing to the Registrar is required of the intended removal of a pupil from the College. Failure to provide adequate notice will result in one term's fee being charged in addition to the charge for the term in which the pupil was removed. 
  9. A pupil may not be permitted to commence a new term while any part of the fees or charges remains unpaid.
