Enrolment Process

The members of our Enrolment Team have the privilege of meeting new families, taking you on tours and answering lots of questions. Chairo means “Rejoice” and that has been our experience. At Chairo we see people caring, encouraging and supporting one another. It is a blessing to be involved in such a great school.

Our Process

  1. We encourage you to book a personal  tour.
  2. Complete an enrolment application form.
  3. Your application is considered and you will be advised if a position is available.
  4. An academic and parent partnership interview with the Head of School and also a finance interview are arranged.
  5. You are contacted, usually within one working day, regarding the outcome of the process.


New Traralgon Campus

Traralgon (Kinder to Year 8): The Traralgon campus of Flinders Christian Community College will become a Chairo campus from the beginning of 2018 and will continue to provide quality Christian education for children from Latrobe Valley families.

We are excited about this opportunity for Chairo to expand further east and to build on the good work that Flinders has been doing. Once students complete Year 8, they will be able to use school-provided buses to transfer to Senior School at the Drouin Campus for Years 9 to 12.

For enquiries regarding enrolments for Kinder to Year 8 at Traralgon and Years 9 to 12 at Drouin, please contact Tina Lewis at the Drouin Campus on 5625 4600 or at enrolments@chairo.vic.edu.au. 

Enrolment Policy

Chairo is a Christian school. In order to fulfill our mission and objectives, and to maintain a predominantly Christian community, we aim for a minimum level of 75% of students from Christian homes; this means we also can’t offer every student a place. A range of criteria help determine whether or not an application will be successful.

For enrolment purposes, a Christian family is defined as a family where at least one parent/guardian is able to make a credible profession of faith as a Bible-believing Christian; agrees with and adheres to Chairo's Articles of Faith; regularly attends a church/fellowship with doctrinal beliefs substantially consistent with those of the School; and is willing and able to provide a pastoral reference or contact details for a pastoral referee check.

All families are expected to support the ethos of the School, as reflected in the Statement of Rules and various policies, and to abide by the requirements of the Statement of Rules and all policies.
