Prior to enrolling
We require all prospective parents to attend a school tour. Tours are an excellent way to see the school campus, student work, to ask questions and to get a feel for Birali.
After you have attended a school tour, an Enrolment Application Form is to be completed and returned to the school along with supporting documents and a non-refundable enrolment application fee of $110.
Completed Enrolment Application Forms can be sent to the school by email or by post to:
Attention: Enrolments Officer
Birali Steiner School
670 Beachmere Road
Beachmere Qld 4510
Mobile: 0412 014 165
Enrolment Applications are placed on our wait list once received in full. When there is a place available in the appropriate class, the wait list will be reviewed and families contacted in order of priority and date.
A family interview will then be scheduled. The purpose of the family interview is to give Birali as much information about the child as possible and answer any questions parents may have. Please note: Birali will contact the child’s current/former school to gather information about the child, including any reports from support professionals and/or agencies not already provided with the application, (i.e. eye and hearing tests, psychological, etc.) to ensure that we are in the best possible position to support the student being enrolled.
Once the school is satisfied that a placement can be offered, a non-refundable enrolment confirmation fee of $550 per child becomes due to secure the placement (capped at the first two children from each family). An Enrolment Pack including an Enrolment Contract is issued to the enrolling family.
All forms in the Enrolment Pack need to be completed and returned with payment of the Enrolment Confirmation Fee prior to the application being finalised and the student commencing.
