Enrolment at Jarjum

Redfern Jarjum College is an Independent Catholic Primary School for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. The school considers applications for enrolment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who:

  • may require additional academic, social-emotional or behavioral support
  • are seeking an education with a distinct First Nations cultural focus
  • would benefit from comprehensive wrap-around health services and family support

Enrolment Process

Parents or carers who are considering enrolment at Jarjum for their child should contact the College to arrange an initial enrolment interview. This provides an opportunity to see the school, meet the staff and consider how Jarjum might best support a child and their family to have the most positive educational experience. An enrolment decision will be made by the Principal in consultation with the College Pastoral Care team, based on whether enrolment at Jarjum is in the best interest of the child and the current cohort at the College. Central to this decision is the willingness of families and carers to work in partnership with the College, a key-stone of success at Jarjum.

The main enrolment point at Jarjum is in the Junior years – K- 2,  however new enrolments in the Middle and Senior classes will be considered on a case-by-case basis.


If you would like to speak to someone about arranging an enrolment meeting, please contact the College by calling 9936 5450 or sending an email to reception.
