If you hold a New Zealand passport or your Visa status changes, you may be able to enrol as a domestic student. Domestic enrolment preference is given to students or families with an established Catholic connection. To establish this, a Preference of Enrolment Certificate must be obtained from your Parish Priest and the student must meet certain criteria. Non-Preference (or non-Catholic) families are welcome to enrol their child at Aquinas College. However, the Non-Preference roll is very competitive and the number accepted depends on the number of Preference applications received. Click here for domestic enrolment:
