Archbishops Charter for Catholic Schools

One of the major responsibilities of an Archbishop is to oversee and support the development of Catholic schools across the diocese. Under Canon Law1 the Archbishop of Hobart has full ecclesiastical authority for all Catholic schools in Tasmania.


In exercising this responsibility the Archbishop has developed a Charter for Catholic Schools for the establishment and conduct of schools across the Archdiocese.

The Federation congratulates the Archbishop on the Charter and supports its implementation.

Child Safe Communities

Every child is entitled to be educated and cared for in a safe environment, and in a manner that optimises their opportunities to grow and develop to reach their full potential.

Catholic Education Tasmania is a child safe organisation that:

  • is committed to child safe practices and procedures,

  • takes a preventative, proactive and participatory stance on child safety issues, and

  • has zero tolerance to child abuse.

 

The Catholic Education Commission Tasmania (CECT) established Child Safe Standards setting out the behavioural and system requirements necessary to guide child safety practices and procedures within Catholic Education Tasmania.

Working with Vulnerable People

Catholic Education Tasmania requires employees, volunteers and external providers engaged to work on school and college sites to hold Working with Vulnerable People registration. Working with Vulnerable People is a compulsory background check for many people who work or volunteer with children and vulnerable people in Tasmania. 

Catholic School Tasmania

Most schools have set enrolment periods for Kindergarten, Year 7 and Year 11 however applications for enrolment in other year levels may be taken year round pending availability. There is strong demand in many of our schools and colleges so families are advised to complete and return their enrolment applications before the advertised due dates.

For applications for enrolment and more information regarding the enrolment process please contact your local Catholic school or college.

 

Enrolment applications are to be returned to the school upon completion along with other required documentation as requested to support the application. Interviews will held with the Principal or his/her representative prior to any offers being made.

When first enrolling in a Tasmanian Catholic school evidence of the student's identity, date of birth and vaccination record must be provided.

 

Additional documents—such as management plans for medical conditions—may also be required where applicable.

COMMENCING IN CATHOLIC EDUCATION

Children who are four years old on 1 January can commence Kindergarten in that same year. Enrolment processes for Kindergarten are held in the year before commencement. 

Catholic Education Tasmania also runs the free birth to five Setup for Success program in 30 of our 38 schools statewide. The aim of our Setup for Success program is for schools to work with families to build a community of learners who support children to become engaged with their learning for life, inspired by Christian values.

Find our how to get your child Setup for Success

STARTING AT A NEW SCHOOL

Orientation programs are normally held for students commencing Kindergarten, Year 7 or Year 11 on site in the year prior to commencement. Details of these orientation sessions will be available from your school.

If you are commencing in Catholic education or in a new school outside of our enrolment periods, please contact your school or college for more details regarding orientation for new students

Setup for Success is our free early years program promoting learning for life for both young children and their families.

This program is open to all families within the community who have a child aged between birth and five years. Setup for Success is currently running in 30 of our 38 Catholic schools statewide.

Our qualified Setup for Success coordinators develop tailored programs to meet the needs of children and families within their local community inspired by Christian values.

Parents attend Setup for Success alongside their children in a welcoming and inspiring environment designed to promote development across all learning areas.

Each week the Setup for Success program coordinators will work with families to:

  • support parental understanding of child development,

  • respond to learners’ interests, strengths and needs,

  • communicate the learning that is on offer, and why this learning is important to their child, and

  • provide resources to assist families to continue to support their children’s learning in their home settings.

 

Our caring and supportive environments promote optimal early childhood development that greatly increases children’s chances of a successful transition to school. This, in turn, promotes children’s chances of achieving better learning outcomes while at school, and better education, employment and health after they have finished school
