The St Margaret’s College Open Day allows your family to discover the opportunities available for your daughter in a related ad fun environment. Meet current students, teachers, see classes in action and listen to our Executive Principal, Diana Patchett, Head of Middle School, Kathryn Gray and our 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 2021 Open Day will take place on Monday 22 March at 10:30am to 1:00pm. The Principal’s speech takes place at 11:45am in the Charles Luney Auditorium, followed by a presentation by the Head of Middle School (Years 7-10). Beat the queues and pre-register here.

Boarding families may like to take advantage of our SMC Sleepover which gives girls the opportunity to try boarding and meet others in the prospective year groups. This takes place on Sunday 21 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 – please click here to register.
