THERE are many events happening across NSW Catholic Schools for this year's Catholic Schools Week, including numerous open days.
Open days are a great chance for you to scope out potential schools, and see what NSW Catholic Schools have to offer.
The Good Uni Guide has some great tips on how to tackle open days:
● Make a plan:
If you plan to attend multiple open days, make sure you have assigned a date and time for each. With many great options out there, try to make a shortlist of the places you'd really like to see. If an open day you wish to attend conflicts with another, then make an effort to visit the schools website or give them a call to find out more information.
● Come prepared:
Check out the schedules for the day; if there is a particular tour or event you want to see plan your day so that you can attend. Find out parking and traffic information in advance so nothing will hold you up.
● Talk to the right people:
Never be afraid to ask questions as you may not get the same opportunity again to get the answers you need. If there are students available, have a chat to them about what they enjoy about the school; this might give both future students and parents a great perspective about this particular school.
Take a look around the school grounds, and explore classrooms, outdoor areas, the hall and the library.
● And most importantly, have fun:
Visiting a school should be a joyful experience, so explore, chat to other visitors and enjoy the day.
