Catholic Schools Open Week

Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions that a parent makes. Through a commitment to educational excellence, Catholic schools provide quality learning in a Catholic context – from the early years through to Year 12 – instilling values that will last well beyond the schooling experience. This year, families are encouraged to discover their local Catholic school during Catholic Schools Open Week and see how a Catholic education can set your child up for life.   Choosing a Catholic school Tours and Open Days are a great way to see the school in action, meet the teachers and experience the learning environment. Some schools take tours in groups; others have individual tours for your family. Some schools offer Come ‘n’ Try sessions – where your child can experience a day at school first-hand. You can also take a Virtual or Video tour for a taste of what a Catholic school can offer without having to leave home! With over 100 tours and events across the State, this is the perfect time to discover your local Catholic school. For more information:
