Gippsland Grammar’s Acting Principal Michele Wakeham invites Gippslanders to join her for a cuppa or two at the School’s upcoming ‘Tour & Tea’ events.
The Tour & Teas will be held at each of the School’s three campuses throughout the year, including on the following dates:
The ‘Tour & Tea’ events offer an opportunity for interested families to tour the leading independent school’s three campuses before joining Mrs Wakeham for a cup of tea and a chat. At the senior Garnsey Campus the tours are the first time the public will be able to tour the School’s new Arts & Design Centre, which was only opened to students earlier this month at the beginning of Term 2.
Mrs Wakeham said the events will appeal to students and parents looking at school options for 2023 and beyond.
“Every child deserves a great education,” Mrs Wakeham said. “Gippsland Grammar values, and has delivered, quality education for nearly 100 years and I extend my personal invitation to each and every local with an interest in our School.”
More than 100 families recently attended the School’s three Open Days held on weekends, however these midweek events offer a more intimate opportunity to further explore the School’s facilities.
At each event, Mrs Wakeham will be joined by members of the School’s Leadership Team as well as student leaders who will join the interested families on the tours, ensuring the tours offer a unique first-hand perspective on student life.
Visitors are asked to RSVP to Gippsland Grammar Enrolments Team here.
