Visitors are invited to discover the St Margaret’s difference and further explore the school at St Margaret’s open morning on Thursday 11 August from 8am.
Principal Ros Curtis says open morning represents the ideal opportunity for a personal school visit, including the chance to chat over a cup of coffee with senior academic staff and heads of extracurricular areas.
“Our open morning is a very friendly and informal way to get to know us better,” she says.
“After a brief welcome by me, families can tour the school with our students and view the school as it would normally operate, before joining us for morning tea.”
“Our students delight in answering all our visitors’ questions and of course parents can find out first-hand about life at St Margaret’s.”
Hearing directly from the students can provide invaluable insight into the education offered by a school.
When a parent who recently enrolled her child at St Margaret’s was asked why she chose St Margaret’s, she wrote on the application form that she had visited the school on open day and the young woman who had shown them around the school ‘was amazing’.
“What really struck us was how proud she was of her school and the opportunities that she had been presented with both academically and socially, and in relation to her values and faith,” the mother wrote.
Ms Curtis says the school’s smaller size was its greatest strength, and enabled a personalised approach to learning.
“We focus on creating an environment where each child is known and nurtured, while being both supported and challenged to achieve her academic goals,” she says.
“She may require additional learning support, or could be a high achieving student who would benefit from academic extension through our Flyers Program.”
“We will recognise and understand her needs and respond accordingly.”
For further details about the open morning, families can phone or email the school. Guests are asked to register at the website at www.stmargarets.qld.edu.au
