The St Margaret’s College Open Day allows your family to discover the opportunities available for your daughter in a relaxed and fun environment. Meet current students, teachers, see classes in action and listen to executive principal, Diana Patchett, and the Head Girl speak. Our performing arts and sports departments are also on display, along with the Centre for Innovation. Visit the Junior, Middle and Senior Schools, plus the Pre-School is also open.
Our 2020 Open Day will take place on Monday 23 March at 10:30am to 1:00pm and pre-registration is available in January. The Principal’s Speech takes place at 11:45am in the Charles Luny Auditorium.
Boarding families may like to take advantage of our SMC Sleepover which gives girls the opportunity to try boarding and meet others in their prospective year groups. This takes place on Sunday 22 March from 4:30pm in Julius House. The girls will then join you for Open Day from 10:30am the next day. Pre-registration is essential and will be open in January.
If you’d like to look around the school throughout the year, you can book a private tour at any time with our registrar, Lizzie Dyer, by clicking here.
