All our Catholic Schools are State Integrated Schools. Our Catholic Schools have a Catholic character school that allows for collaboration between the government and a private proprietor in a way that preserves the special character of the proprietor and the school. State-integrated schools are permitted to give preference in enrolment to students who, either themselves or through their parents, identify with the school's special character. In order to establish preference, school require parents to obtain a Preference Certificate from their Parish Priest. A Catholic school can legally enrol a maximum of 5% non-preference students if, and only if, there are spaces available.
