St Mary's College

Eligibility



In the case of Roman Catholic schools the preference criteria is met through “an established connection with the Roman Catholic Church”, and requires a Certificate of Preference to be obtained from your local Catholic Parish Priest, or Lay Pastoral Leader which confirms that this connection has been made.

Families who meet this criteria are legally referred to as Preference enrolments.

Families who do not meet this criteria are legally referred to as Non-preference enrolments. We have a Non-preference enrolment of up to 10% of our maximum role of 620 students.  Please note that the Non-Preference waiting list for 2017 has now closed.

We require a copy of your daughter’s New Zealand Birth Certificate or a copy of her Passport showing details of her residency status.
