Open Days and Tours


Open Day

Our Open Day is held in mid-May each year, from 9.00am to Midday in the Performing Arts Building. Entry to the School is via the gates at 59 Wattle Street.  Parents, children and family members are warmly invited to attend. Registration to attend our Open Day is not required.

The date will be advertised on our website well in advance and also advised in the letter enclosed with the information pack if you enquire online.

We have a small display in the Performing Arts Building and some of our students perform musical items for your enjoyment whilst you sip a cup of tea or coffee. Then our Year 10 students will show you around the School wherever you would like to visit.

The tour generally takes approximately one hour if you visit all of our facilities which include the Christopher J. Morey Building, Performing Arts Building, the Swimming Pool, the Gymnasium, the Naunton Family Building and the Junior School.  One and a half hour parking is available in Wattle Street and surrounding streets.

Headmaster’s Tour Mornings

The Headmaster’s Tour Mornings are held at various times during the year.  Tours will be held in January, March and September with the last tour being held on Melbourne Cup Day in November.  The School runs as a normal school day on Melbourne Cup Day as Bendigo has a public holiday on Bendigo Cup Day.

Parents meet in the Performing Arts Building at 59 Wattle Street at 9:00am.  The Headmaster, Mr Maruff, will address parents briefly and ask parents to divide into groups of either the tour of the Junior School with the Head of Junior School, Mr Thompson or the tour with the Headmaster and/or Deputy Head.  The tour takes approximately one hour.

Parents are asked to register if they wish to attend one of these mornings by emailing registrar@girton.vic.edu.au or by telephoning 03 5441 3114
