Please note: due to current COVID-19 restrictions, this event has been postponed until further notice.

Gippslanders are invited to meet Gippsland Grammar’s Principal Leisa Harper and tour one of the region’s leading co-educational independent schools.

Principal Harper is inviting locals to a ‘Tour and Tea’ on Wednesday, June 2 from 9am-10.30am, at the School’s senior Garnsey Campus, Princes Highway, Sale.

Together with Gippsland Grammar’s leadership team boasting students and educators, Mrs Harper will welcome visitors to the secondary school to tour the facilities and see students at work before also enjoying a casual morning tea.

While Mrs Harper has been at Gippsland Grammar since March last year, because of COVID-19, has not enjoyed the opportunity to meet as many locals as she would like. She said the upcoming event would appeal to students and parents looking at secondary school options for 2022 and beyond.

“Every child deserves a great education,” Mrs Harper said. “Gippsland Grammar values, and has delivered, quality education for nearly 100 years. I am proud to be the Principal of this amazing School and I really look forward to meeting more locals.

“I extend my personal invitation to each and every local with an interest in our School.”

For catering purposes visitors are asked to RSVP to Gippsland Grammar Enrolments Team by calling 5143 6388.

Gippsland Grammar students are among some of Victoria’s highest achieving students.

In 2020 an amazing 23 per cent of the School’s Year 12 students achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) above 90, which places them in the top 10 per cent of students in the State. And 55 per cent of students achieved an ATAR above 80, placing them in the top 20 per cent. Throughout last year 13 students secured apprenticeships and traineeships through Gippsland Grammar’s VCAL program.

Its Boarding House, Blackwood House, offers students from further afield the same opportunities and education as locals.

Gippsland Grammar features three beautiful campuses – St Anne’s Junior Campus, Early Learning Centre to Year 6 in Sale, Garnsey Campus and Blackwood House in Sale which caters for Years 7-12, and Bairnsdale Junior Campus, Early Learning Centre to Year 6, located on Bullumwaal Rd, Wy Yung.
