This annual event gives parents an opportunity to meet our experienced staff, to see our specialist facilities and to learn about the wide range of courses that we offer. This year, COVID restrictions permitting, our Open Evening will take place on Thursday 7 October from 5.00pm until 8.30pm in our Barossa Building.
Most importantly this event gives us the chance to showcase our students who are the best ambassadors for our College. During the evening I will give three presentations summarising all the advantages of choosing Collingwood and students will talk about their positive experiences of the College. Our Open Evenings are very interactive and give parents and students the opportunity to talk to staff and our students and, in many cases, participate in practical activities.
Many parents also often want an opportunity to see the College at work during a normal working day and join us on one of our early morning tours. These will take place, COVID restrictions permitting, from September to October. We will notify parents/carers when/if these become available to book in the near future. We are very proud of Collingwood and always look forward to showing prospective parents and their children around the site to see our staff and students engaged in their lessons.
In the meantime, if you would like to see what Collingwood has to offer, we have created a combination of video presentations and a virtual tour. Please click here to view. Of course nothing can replace the experience of physically visiting Collingwood but we hope that until we can receive visitors once more, the information/videos provided plus the published exam results, the most recent Ofsted Inspection report, our website content, our prospectus and, crucially, the very positive reputation of the College in the local community, will give you a significant amount of information to base your important decision of which secondary school to choose for your child/children.
I am passionate about the first class education that Collingwood can provide for all students – I hope that you will be convinced that this is the right place for your child.
