Prior to your child commencing school, you will be required to complete and return the School’s compulsory new student forms (including any medical/allergy details). Should a formal orientation not be available (for example, mid-term entry), students are invited to attend SJAS for a day, where they have the opportunity to meet with their classmates and spend a day as an SJAS student.

Students will be invited to attend depending on year group either a half day or a full-day orientation program on a weekday during Term 4 the year prior to commencing at St James’.
