Awesome Open Day

Awesome Open Day

Christian Service Coordinator, Ms Emily Bowran, speaking to parents.

Gloomy weather didn't dampen community spirits on Tuesday, with more than 100 families touring CBC Fremantle for Open Day and receiving an unfiltered look at the College's facilities and students.

Teachers from all departments were on hand across 18 stations around the College, providing young boys with an exciting look at what might lie ahead and answering any queries future parents had.

Current CBC students were the stars of the day, running demonstrations in classrooms, and candidly answering any questions visitors had about life at the College as they escorted tours around the campus.

The Science department was a popular station for many, with the Biology Lab full of an array of experiments and displays, including the College's resident mice!

Food Technology also proved to be popular, with Ms Angela Calanni and her student helpers cooking up more than 1,500 pastries which were offered to the visitors.

CBC's Jazz Orchestra kept families entertained in the Cloisters, while the Parent Auxiliary was kept busy serving hundreds of sausage sizzles and drinks at the conclusion of tours.

Open Day is always considered to be an important date on the College calendar, giving prospective parents a chance to experience CBC first hand and better understand the College's unique approach to educating boys.
