Current Principal's Feedback

If your child auditions successfully and accepts our offer to enrol at HSPA, we will contact their current school Principal for an outline of their achievement across the curriculum, literacy and numeracy profile and their attitude, commitment and behaviour in all areas of school life. We will also request information about their social development and any Learning Support Needs to assist us to plan for their transition and cater for individual needs.


Compassionate Enrolments

(Outside of regular audition times)

From time to time, there are extenuating circumstances that may require an audition outside of our regular audition time frames. These can be requested for the following reasons:

  • Moving to the area
  • Wellbeing concerns
  • Changes in family circumstances

Please call the Front office on 4952 3355 and speak to Natalie for further details.


Applications need to meet the critera for compassionate consideration and are not always granted. This process incurs a $250 application fee.
