At Gilson College we are aware of the need to ensure that your child commences school life happily and that the relationship between teachers, student and parent becomes a strong, lasting partnership. We believe that a child who is well acquainted with the new school environment will make the adjustment from informal to formal education more smoothly. Please Note: Prep children must turn 5 before 30th April of the year they are to commence school.

The College holds a number of Orientation days for students who are successful in obtaining an offer of a place. Families will be notified in writing of the dates for these orientation days.

Our Foundation (Prep) Orientation Program consists of 2 half-day sessions from 9:00am to 12:00 noon.

Our Year 7 Orientation Program consists of one full day program 9:00am to 3:30pm.

The dates for all these sessions are communicated to the parents of successful applicants.

Please contact our College Office on 9365 9365 (Taylor's Hill) or 9717 7300 (Mernda) if you have further questions.
