Open Day/Evening Information

September 19, 2022

Dear Parent/Guardian,

RE: Open day

Due to the unprecedented demand for student places in our school, we will be organising two events for prospective students.

Event one – Friday 23rd September 9.00 a.m. – 1.55 p.m.

The first event will be for primary school students and their teachers to attend and will not be open to the general public or parents.
Event two – Tuesday 27th September 2.30–4.30 p.m. and again from 5.30-7.30 p.m.

The second event is for everyone and as current parents of our students I would like to take this opportunity to cordially invite you to Stanhope Secondary School’s (St. Joseph’s) public open day which will take place Tuesday 27th September 2.30–4.30 p.m. and again from 5.30-7.30 p.m.

Our open day is an important showcase event. It is an opportunity for current and prospective parents and students to sample what our school has to offer. In addition to this, it is an opportunity to build relationships with our community and give a greater insight into what makes this school such a historic, successful and prestigious school.

To facilitate open day classes will finish at 12.50 p.m. on Tuesday 27th September, we encourage all student to get involved in assisting in what promises to be such a great event. I would ask all parents to encourage and support their daughters to get involved in our open days. I would hope that every student would be able to get involved. Students that cannot assist with open day should remain at home during the open day times.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to ask.

Yours sincerely,


Mr. J. O’Brien
Stanhope Secondary School
