Step 2

Enrolment Interview
Before a place is offered, we will invite you and your child to attend an enrolment interview. Interviews are generally held in Term II and III of the year preceding entry.

Preparatory Interviews include a visit to The Piper Centre.
 
The interview is an opportunity to discuss the school program and to allow parents and students to raise any questions.
 
Please note: Not all students who are interviewed will be offered a place.

 

Step 3

Offer of Placement
Subject to the outcome of the interview and availability of placements, a letter offering a placement will be mailed to the parents/guardians.

 

Step 4

Accepting/Declining the Placement
To accept your child’s placement at the School, you will be required to sign and return the Acceptance of Offer together with the non-refundable Enrolment Fee of $1750.00 within 21 days (or as stated in the letter of offer).
 
Enrolment Fee: is a non-refundable fee which is required to be paid to demonstrate the firm intention of parent/guardians to take up a place held for their child for commencement on a nominated date. It is security held for the enrolled child, as the School has to incur expenditure for both physical and human resources in preparation for the new school year.
