SHELDON College continues to transform students’ lives since opening its doors in 1997.

The Community is invited to experience the College first-hand, which educates students from 15 months through to year 12, in an upcoming Open Morning.

Families can attend the independent, co-educational and non-denominational College to meet and greet students and staff on Friday 31 August from 8.30am to 11am and gain insight plus explore educational pathways for their child.

Attendees will join the College Assembly which will have top-quality music and other entertainment for guests to enjoy. Afterwards, guests will gather in the Sheldon Event Centre for a welcome address by Sheldon College Principal and CEO Dr Lyn Bishop, capped off by a campus tour.

Dr Lyn Bishop (OAM) warmly invites people to visit the College located on 56 acres in a semi-rural setting in Taylor Road, Sheldon to experience the outstanding quality of its pupils and the world-class facilities they enjoy. 

“We see education as a partnership between the home and the school and we believe fundamentally that what the homes are, the schools will be, and what the two are the future will be – so come and experience Sheldon College for yourself,” she said.

“School is going to assume a vital role in shaping your child’s future in so many ways, so the only way to do it is to visit and ask lots of questions.

“Find out what is being taught and how it is being taught.

“Find out more about the teachers here and how qualified they are.”

Principal Bishop said the College is excited to showcase their ethos of ‘Love, Laughter and Learning’ in practice to visitors on the day by offering them an authentic learning experience.

“The significance of attending this Open Morning during a school day is to enjoy an up-close and personal encounter of students and teachers interacting behind-the-scenes while classes are in action,” she said.

“Sheldon College will unveil our talented Early Learning, Junior, Middle and Senior College learners at their best. 

“Visitors can catch a glimpse into the world of our talented students who will be engaged in educational activities and families can observe the high standard of staff and students in the areas of dress and appearance, behaviour and work habits.”

Take a tour to discover Sheldon College’s world-class sporting venues, state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities including a new Artscapes Mixed Reality and Visual Art facility and our multi-purpose Sheldon Event Centre among other highlights.

Complimentary parking will be available for all guests who will then meet at the Sheldon Event Centre.
