Downlands Open Day

May 19 2019

Discover how your family fits within our family at the Downlands Open Day on Sunday 19 May, from 10am until 2pm. There’s plenty to see so stay as long as you can.

On Open Day, we invite you to visit our beautiful campus, experience the broad range of opportunities available to Downlanders. Discover what it means to be a Downlander!

The Open Day program starts at 10am and finishes at 2pm. Families often stay for the entire program, so, to keep energy levels up, we have organised a free sausage sizzle lunch to fill little (and big) tummies.
