Catholic children living in the community of Ss Michael and John’s Parish will ordinarily have a right to a place at our school providing there is one available. SMJ Horsham also welcomes the enrolment of all students and families who share their vision and education philosophy.  Applications are currently open for all year levels at our school.

The Enrolment Process

The 2023 application process is as follows:

To ensure an equitable enrolment process of students at Ss Michael and John’s Primary School, the following process will be followed for all new expression of interest and formal enrolments.

Prospective parents are encouraged to download the SMJ Prospectus, view our website content and check out our Facebook page SMJ Horsham.

All prospective parents must complete an expression of interest form which can be downloaded here Expression of interest form 2023.docx and then sent to, posted to PO Box 791 Horsham VIC 3402 or provided direct to the school office at 7 McLachlan St Horsham VIC 3400.

After an expression of interest form is received, parents will be invited to the school for a tour with the Principal or Deputy Principal. At the tour, parents will be provided an enrolment pack which includes enrolment forms.

Upon receipt of an enrolment form, parents and prospective students will be invited to return to the school for an interview. Based on the application and interview, a Letter of Offer may then be forwarded. 

Parents will then be asked to return a Letter of Acceptance within a time limit and pay a $100 enrolment deposit. Once this process is completed, a child has secured a place at Ss Michael and John’s Primary School.

An application is a prerequisite to admission but not a guarantee of admission. The order of priority for applications is siblings of current students, then baptised Catholic children, other children of faith and then all other applications.
