Foundation 2022 Tours – by booking only

Tours for 2022 Foundation are now available to book at https://www.trybooking.com/BOSAE .

 

These tours are designed for the parents/guardians of children who live within the Vermont Primary School Designated Neighbourhood Boundary and will be attending Prep/Foundation in the year 2022.

What will I see on the tour?

A member of the leadership team will greet you at the front of the North Building at 9.30am, the tour will then begin promptly. You will be shown around the outside grounds and, where possible, may enter some of the buildings if COVID restrictions allow. Information about the school, curriculum, routines and daily life will be shared with you on this day.

You will be able to ask questions, view all external school grounds and where possible, some internal classrooms (masks required).

 

As access to some classrooms will be limited, we encourage you to view the digital school tours below . These tours were created by the 2020 Foundation Team and Year 6 Leaders and will give you insight into the daily life of a Foundation Student.
