We will run three sessions starting at 4pm, 5pm and 6pm.  There will be a 15 minute presentation in the school hall followed by a tour of the school. All visitors will need to be off site before the next group is permitted to come on site. It is essential that you sign in on the evening including scanning the Service NSW QR code. You will be able to book one adult to come to Balmain Campus during one of the sessions. Numbers will be limited to 50 adults with one or two prospective student(s). These precautions are so that the safety of all visitors, staff and students can be maintained.

Please note that we normally conduct a Q and A session at Open Night. We will not be able to do that this year. When making a booking for Open Night please add your questions into the question field. We will be posting a frequently asked questions on the school web site after Open Night.

In the event that all three sessions are fully booked we will also be offering school tours on the following afternoons: Tuesday 9th and Thursday 11th March. These tours will be limited to 20 adults with one/ two accompanying prospective student(s). Preference will be given for students currently in year 6 if they have missed out on other opportunities to visit our campus.
