Thank you for your interest in Wollondilly Anglican College.
Wollondilly Anglican College welcomes applications for students entering Pre-Kindergarten (Transition) to Year 12.
For all enquiries, please contact the College Enrolments Officer on (02) 4684 2722 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon receipt of the completed documents, the Headmaster will review the application.
If the student is enrolling in Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten they may at the Headmaster’s discretion, be invited to attend a College day. Alternatively, if the student is applying for Years 1 to 12, then the student may be invited to attend an interview with the Headmaster. The Headmaster may also advise that no suitable vacancy exists, at which time the student can elect to be placed on a waiting list. The College may elect to proceed with this enrolment if a suitable place becomes available.
College Day (Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten only)
Students entering Transition or Kindergarten may be required to attend the College for half a day and participate in the daily program with Transition. This process allows parents and the prospective students an opportunity for familiarisation. When collecting their child, parents will have the opportunity to discuss the morning events with the Teaching Staff. Following the College Day, an interview with the student and their parents may be arranged at the Headmaster’s discretion.
Interviews are generally conducted by the Headmaster or a delegated representative. The interview
incorporates a tour of the College and an opportunity to ask questions.
Letter of Offer
If a suitable vacancy exists, a Letter of Offer will be forwarded to be signed, which will then need to be returned within 14 days. Alternatively, the Headmaster may also advise that no suitable vacancy exists, at which time the student can elect to be placed on a waiting list. The College may elect to proceed with the enrolment if a suitable place becomes available.
Acceptance of Offer and Payment of Bond
When returning the Letter of Offer, the security bond of $500.00 per student is to be paid, up to a limit of $1000.00 per family. This bond is held by the College and will be refunded where one terms notice is given of the withdrawal of the student or the student successfully completes Year 12. A partial refund may apply where money is owed to the College or equipment and books have not been returned.
For those students commencing at the start of the year, Orientation Day is an informative Saturday morning held in late October of the preceding year. All enrolling students are expected to attend.
Transition at Wollondilly Anglican College aims to provide a wonderful introduction to the College. From the age of four, students can attend either the two or three-day program. Throughout the year, students are gradually incorporated and familiarised with the College through a structured program including “events” such as excursions to the Canteen, Library, and Warne Auditorium.
- Two-day program – Tuesday and Thursday;
- Three-day program – Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Both programs run from 8.10 am to 2.30 pm.
Kindergarten represents the formal start to education for students. Situated in the Cook building, the expectations introduced in Transition are reinforced and developed. Kindergarten students develop foundational skills to carry them through in their future schooling.
The Junior Years at Wollondilly spans Transition to Year 4. During this time students remain with a single teacher for most of the day where fundamental education skills are developed. Students in these years have access to a wide range of facilities available at the College and are involved in weekly sport and chapel services as well as the opportunity to develop a second language and participate in the creative and performing arts.
The Middle Years at Wollondilly are Years 5 to 8. One of the great strengths of the College is the seamless transition between the Junior and Middle years. Traditionally a time of uncertainty and anxiety, the move from the Junior Years is little more than returning to a familiar environment with familiar friends. In Years 5 and 6, students are part of a transition learning program centered around a core teacher and several specialist teachers. They are less entrenched in one room. Years 7 and 8 provide an opportunity to sample a variety of possible elective subjects to assist with an informed decision for Years 9 and 10.
The Senior Years encompass Years 9 to 12. Students in Years 9 and 10 choose electives from a broad variety of options.
The Collegiate Years at Wollondilly comprises of Years 11 and 12. Surrounded by a new purpose-built Senior campus, the Rev John Flynn Collegiate, senior students have the opportunity to work towards their HSC surrounded by state-of-the-art facilities and supported by high quality experienced staff. As Seniors, Year 11 and 12 students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and study patterns, as they develop the skills necessary to balance the workload of the HSC with other areas of their life. The Collegiate years are an important part of preparing students for the future.
