School Open Days Brisbane 2024: Diary Dates for Parents & Carers

This is a comprehensive list of the secondary and P-12 schools in Brisbane that are holding an Open Day, Visitation Day or School Tour in 2024. Information is being always updated for 2024 so keep checking back for more details. 

We update this list of schools throughout the year with more detailed information as the schools share their Open Day details with us. If you don’t see the school you are interested in, please add in comments – if the school has let us know, we have included it. If you let us know, we can include it.

Why should you attend a Brisbane school open day?

Open days are an important opportunity for parents and carers to get an inside look at a school and gain a better understanding of its values, culture, and teaching methods. By visiting the school and speaking with teachers, administrators, and current students, parents can get a sense of the school’s academic rigor and the support that it provides to students. Additionally, you can get a feel for the school’s environment and the resources that are available to students, such as library facilities, computer labs, and extracurricular programs.

We also believe that attending a school open day is also a great way for parents and carers to get to know the staff and find out more about their qualifications, experience, and teaching philosophy. make sure you ask questions (here are some tips to help you) about the school’s curriculum, the types of assessments used, and the support that is provided to students who are struggling. This information can help parents make an informed decision about whether the school is a good fit for their child and whether it can meet their academic and social needs.

Attending a school open day can also provide parents with a sense of the school community and the types of families that attend the school. This can be an important consideration for families who are looking for a school that is supportive and inclusive, and who want to ensure that their child is surrounded by other children with similar interests and values. By attending an open day, parents and carers can get a sense of the school culture, meet other families, and get a better understanding of what it would be like for their child to attend the school.
