Catholic Education Ballarat - Enrolments for 2025 Foundation

Thank you for your interest in enrolling at St Aloysius’ School, Redan.  To ensure that every family has the appropriate opportunity to enrol their child, all Ballarat Catholic Primary Schools collaborate throughout the process of Foundation (Prep) Enrolment. Information collected through the enrolment process is collated on a common database, which is shared by the Catholic Primary Schools in Ballarat.

The application process for 2025 Foundation (Prep) Enrolments:

  1. Register for a school tour.
  2. Register your interest in enrolling your child at a Catholic school in the City of Ballarat by completing an online “City of Ballarat Expression of Interest for Enrolment” form found on the link below. At this stage, you will be able to nominate St Aloysius' Primary School as your first preference. When completing the Expression of Interest form you will be required to indicate your first, second and third preference schools and upload your child’s birth certificate and baptism certificate (if applicable).
