Would you like to find out more about The McDonald College? Say hello at one of our upcoming events and register your interest today.

Open Days are held twice a year and are divided into primary school and secondary school groups on the day. These events are designed to give parents and children the chance to see the learning areas of the school and also see our students perform. Tours are conducted by student leaders to give parents to opportunity to ask questions and get a sense of the school from the perspective of a student. Sign-in commences from 9.15am with event proceedings finishing by 12pm. Light refreshments and snacks served. Tennis Open Days (Voyager Tennis Academy) are held at the College and Sydney Olympic Park as a joint event. Families can register for these events below. 

Open Mornings are held four times a year in between our Open Days. They are smaller enrolment events which allow prospective families to join our tour groups of the junior, secondary and performing arts spaces lead by the Principal and Deputy Principal. Tours of the Boarding House can also be arranged at this time. 

Open Evenings give prospective families a chance to meet us outside of office hours and tour our premises and meet with the Principal. Light refreshments and snacks served. 


In 2021, we will continue to follow the advice from the Department of Education and NSW Health in relation to COVID-safe practices. With this in mind, our events will be subject to change and we will update information as required. The advice remains the same for all visitors to the school, which is to remain at home if you are unwell.
