Brisbane Secondary and High School Open Days

Deciding which high school your Brisbane kid should attend is one of the most important educational decisions a parent will make. We are blessed with a wide range of great schools in Brisbane and surrounding areas, so it isn’t always an easy choice. There are state, religious and independent schools, many offering specialist areas and excellence programs. Other things to consider include location, cost, performance, sport and other activities, and subjects offered. Although you can glean a lot of information from a school’s website or via oneschool, nothing beats attending an open day or tour to get a feel for whether a school is right for your child.

Booking a School Open Day

Most open days do require bookings, so the best thing to do is head to the school website or ring the general administration number to find out the times of the open day and book a place. Some schools conduct regular tours while others will offer one–on-one tours. If you can’t attend an open day, check if the school is willing to accommodate you for a tour at another time. Another opportunity to see what a high school has on offer is to attend a school fete, which will give you a great indication of the school spirit and community.
