Gippsland Grammar’s senior Garnsey Campus in Sale will host a virtual Open Evening on Friday September 10 from 3.30-6pm.

Current COVID-19 restrictions mean a virtual Open Evening is the most practical way for interested families to gain insight into the Gippsland Grammar experience from the comfort and safety of their own homes.

Gippsland Grammar’s Acting Head of Garnsey Campus Kate Ray said the program for the virtual event would showcase all aspects of School life including a virtual tour of the senior Garnsey Campus, presentations from a variety of key Leadership and teaching staff, a snapshot of what life looks like for boarders in Blackwood House and the opportunities offered by the Rowing program.

“While having students on-site to tour our campus and meet our staff isn’t possible, we are excited to be able to offer a virtual Open Evening,” Ms Ray said. “This 2021 version of our usual Open Day will give interested families the opportunity to talk to some of our Leadership team about what an education at Gippsland Grammar can provide. There will also be an opportunity to discuss our rich co-curricular program with the staff who run these fabulous programs and students will also be available who will be able to share their first-hand perspective on the benefits of being a part of the Gippsland Grammar Community.”

While Gippsland Grammar still has places available for Year 7 next year, this Open Evening may particularly appeal to families with senior students who are looking to join one of Australia’s leading independent co-educational Anglican schools for their final years of schooling for Years 10-12.

Gippsland Grammar’s two junior campuses (Bairnsdale and St Anne’s) will also be represented at the event so potential junior school families are also encouraged to take this opportunity to get a sense of the whole-school Community, which includes early childhood education at the School’s two Early Learning Centres at its Bairnsdale and St Anne’s campuses and long-term, short-term or once-off boarding at Blackwood House for senior students. Private buses operate daily from East Gippsland and the Latrobe Valley.

Gippsland Grammar is one of Australia’s leading independent co-educational Anglican schools. It boasts the only boarding facilities east of Melbourne’s suburban fringe and is a home-away-from-home for students from far East Gippsland, South Gippsland, Victoria’s High Country and the Latrobe Valley as well as for a cohort of international students. Private buses travel from East Gippsland daily.

The virtual Open Evening will be held via Zoom from 3.30-6pm on Friday September 10.
