Secondary School Transition
Parents at St Damian’s have a choice of a number of Catholic and Ministry Schools to apply for Secondary School enrolment. The enrolment process for Secondary Catholic Schools is completed by the end of Year 5 when parents are advised of the success of their enrolment. Parents seeking enrolment in the State system usually complete the enrolment process when the student is in Year 6.
For those parents who wish to have their children continue in catholic education, our main feeder catholic schools are; Loyola College, which is a co-educational school, or Parade College (boys) and Our Lady of Mercy College (girls), The majority of students from St Damian’s usually attend one of these schools. However, there is also the option of St Monica’s College, which is co-educational as well as Catholic Ladies College for girls. There is also the option of the Secondary Ministry schools, such as Greensborough Secondary College and Bundoora Secondary College.
