If residing in the Parish of Mitcham, enrolment at St James Catholic Primary School is determined by geographical boundaries as outlined - Morack Rd, Burwood Hwy, Terrara Rd, Canterbury Rd, Rooks Rd, Carween Ave, Orient Ave, Purches St, Good Governs St, Heatherdale Rd. Please see boundaries marked in blue on the accompanying map.
The Parish will consider applications from outside the zone if there is room in the particular grade or at the year level.
If there are insufficient places at one of the Parish Schools, but there is placement available at the other Parish school, parents may be invited to make application to that school.
Parents of non-Catholic, non-baptised children who desire them to be baptised are required to first contact the Parish Priest and or Pastoral Associate.
