We're taking enrolment applications for the 2024 and 2025 school years.

At Good Samaritan we strive for excellence in teaching and learning. As a school community, we have embraced the science of learning and provide explicit teaching of learning content to ensure students have a clear understanding of why they are learning something, how it connects to what they already know, and what is expected of them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Enrolments are accepted all year round, but the best time to enrol your child is at the beginning of the year (Term 1) – the year before your child is due to commence school.

Enrolment interviews are held in Term 2. You will receive a letter or phone call informing you of a time for you and your child to come in and meet with the principal. Written offers of placement will follow towards the end of Term 2.

The dignity of the human person is the foundation of all Catholic Social Teaching and inherent to the mission of our school. Essential to this is the creation and maintenance of a respectful, safe and supportive learning environment that promotes student wellbeing and enables school communities to engage an inclusive and diverse range of learners.

At Good Samaritan, we believe that all members of the community have the right to a learning and working environment free from intimidation, humiliation and harm. We all share a responsibility to create a culture of caring which will not tolerate bullying. We believe that bullying must be taken seriously and is not acceptable in any form. In witnessing Christian values we reject ideas, beliefs and behaviours, which marginalise or victimise people. 

Please refer to the Catholic Education Diocese of Wollongong's Pastoral Care and Wellbeing Policy here.

You can also find further anti-bullying, wellbeing and online safety resources at our Resources page here.

Students are able to catch one of the Premier Illawarra school buses operating in Fairy Meadow and surrounding suburbs, both to and from school. See our school bus routes and timetables here (under 'Good Samaritan - Fairy Meadow').

Please note: All students must have an Opal Card to be able to travel on the buses.

The School Opal card gives eligible students free or discounted travel between home and school using the train, bus, ferry and light rail services you nominated in your application.

Who can apply?

To be eligible for a School Opal card, students may need to live a minimum distance from their school:

  • Years K – 2 (Infants) – No minimum distance.
  • Years 3 – 6 (Primary) – More than 1km straight line distance or at least 2.3km walking.

Who needs to apply?

A new application is only required if the student has not had a School Opal card before.  If your children already have a School Opal card and are changing schools or going into Years 3 or 7, you will need to update their Opal card for the new school year before mid-December at

Please see our Fees Information page for more information.

If you are experiencing financial hardship and are unable to pay fees, please discuss the situation with our principal. Your situation will be treated with care and confidentiality, and an appropriate arrangement may be made for you. No student will be refused enrolment because of a family’s genuine inability to pay fees.

We'd love to have you! Good Samaritan strives to be a connected and welcoming community and we value the engagement of parents and families in the school life in any way they can.

This could be as simple as being interested and informed about school events and activities, supporting and/or participating in community events, school assemblies and school liturgies.

If you are able, we also welcome and value your involvement in school activities. Parents (and grandparents!) can participate and contribute by:

  • Assisting in the classroom with reading or mathematics groups
  • Volunteering at school working bees or maintenance
  • Assistance at sport carnivals and gala days

Please note: Given our commitment to safeguarding children, volunteers will first need to organise a Working With Children Check (WWCC) – information and forms can be found on the CEDoW website

All parents and families are also invited to become involved with our Parents and Friends (P&F) Association, who work collaboratively with the school and parish about matters that affect your child at school, as well as general issues about school life including social events, fundraising and community building.

For more information, please visit our Parent Engagement page.

If you have a concern or would like to raise any issue regarding your child’s learning and wellbeing, our staff welcome the opportunity to speak with you about your child.

We ask that you contact your child’s classroom teacher in the first instance. The best way to do this is by:

  • phoning the school office and asking that your child's teacher return your call; or
  • contacting the teacher via email at to arrange a time to talk.

If the matter is urgent please contact the school office on (02) 4226 6577.

We ask for your patience in response to your request as schools are busy places and the main priority of staff is the education, safety and wellbeing of the students in their care during school hours. Requests by parents for information and meetings will be responded to as quickly as possible.
