On Saturday 7 March, 2015 St Aidan's Anglican Girls' School is holding its Open Day from 9.00am to 12.00 midday in the school's grounds at 11 Ruthven Street, Corinda. This is an opportunity to experience the school's academic, caring and friendly environment first hand and to understand how the school achieves the results it does.
St Aidan's Anglican Girls' School is an independent day school for girls from Prep to Year 12 (Kindergarten is co-educational). Each year, the School's students eclipse state and national literacy, numeracy and tertiary qualification standards with 100 per cent of 2014 Year 12 leavers achieving an OP of 1 to 15 (39% achieved OPs of 1 to 5). St Aidan's Anglican Girls' School is considered one of the top schools in the state.
The best way to learn about the special attributes of St Aidan's is to visit the school and, to this end, the Principal, Mrs Karen Spiller and Head of Junior School, Louise McGuire invite you and your daughter to attend the school's Open Day.

There's more than books for your daughter at St Aiden's
There will be a range of fun and interesting activities throughout the campus, while food and beverages will be available on the day for refreshment.
Open Evening/Mornings: Alternatively, you and your daughter could attend an Open Evening or Morning at the school. These events provide an informal opportunity to visit St Aidan's and see the school 'in action' while students are in their classrooms. The Open times are an excellent opportunity to meet the staff and experience daily life at the school.
The Open Evening and Mornings this year are being held on:
Thursday, 28 May at 4.00pm Tuesday, 25 August at 9.00am
Thursday, 15 October at 9.00am
On these occasions you will be greeted by friendly students as you enter the grounds and guided to where the organised visit commences. The Open Evening/Mornings start with a welcome by the Principal and/or Head of Junior School. Afterwards, you will be taken on a tour of the campus of your choice (Junior School, Senior School or both) by students while classes are in progress. The tour can take from 30 to 60 minutes.
Following the tour, you will be invited to join the staff and students for morning tea in a more casual gathering.
This is a wonderful and relaxed way to see how one of Queensland's leading education facilities operates and assess if it is right for your daughter. To register your interest in attending the Open Day or one of the Open Evening/Mornings complete the form here.
