Mid-Year Reception Intake

Starting school in July

St Joseph's School offers a mid-year Reception enrolment intake for students who turn five on or before October 31.

We offer a School Ready Transition Program for students enrolled to start in Reception in both January or July, to help little ones prepare and welcome them into our community. 

The 2023 Term 3 Reception intake is being offered free of charge. The free intake includes tuition fees and compulsory charges. It excludes uniforms and extra-curricular costs. This initiative of the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools (SACCS) aims to reduce the financial burden on families.

Why a Mid-Year intake?

There is a large body of research that shows the benefit of high quality early learning and care experiences for children in their first 1,000 days of life, and in the years prior to school.

Students who start in Term 3 are likely to spend 18 months in Reception before progressing to Year 1.

When can your child start school?

St Joseph's School offers two intakes per year for children starting Reception.

Term 1 enrolment - for children who turn five years on or before April 30.

Term 3 enrolment (Mid-Year intake) - for children who turn five years on or before October 31.
