All about JCS 2023 Open Day

John Colet School Open Day, Sunday May 28th, 10m – 2pm

Children will have the chance to explore a range of creative workshops set up around the School in our Art-themed Open Day. They can make their own gorgeous print to take home, decorate a cupcake, learn some weaving ways, create a clay pot, a huge communal artwork or a printed bag.

For visitors, our Open Day provides a great opportunity to visit classrooms and see children’s artwork and schoolwork.

This year we will hold an Art Show in the Judith Donald Art Centre featuring a range of Northern Beaches artists. Artworks are available to buy.  Please make sure you have a look.

Visitors can also bid on an amazing artwork, in the form of a decorated cake, at our annual Cake Decorating and Baking Competition.

Choir, ensemble and Shakespeare performances will be showcased between 10am and 11am on the main stage.  The art and craft workshop activities begin after 11am.

Free face painting, photo booth and fire engine hose handling will also be available.

The John Colet School Open Day is an exciting event for families and there is no cost for many of the activities provided.  Delicious vegetarian food, as provided by Chef to the children each school day, is also available to buy in the school’s dining hall, along with OMG donuts Northern Beaches, vegetarian pies and hot chips.

All welcome!  If you are planning to visit our Open Day, please register on arrival at the Reception desk at the top of the entrance way stairs.
