Brief Visits

Brief Visits

Alia offers informal brief visits to potential students and their parents. A brief visit is a great way for interested students and families to see a student group discussion (homeroom meeting) and get an idea of what the school is like, and how the students act, dress and relate. You can experience the difference here in a short period of time giving the prospective student an idea of whether they would like to come along to Alia on a formalised Trial Day.

Mostly the meetings focus on whatever is on students’ minds at the time. If someone refers to a foot injury you are liable to hear a dozen foot injury stories. Sometimes a news or sporting event produces a lot of discussion. Sometimes, if you are lucky, there will be a question or difficulty up for discussion and you will see a problem resolution process in action.

Brief visits start at around 8.50am, any day of the school week, and run for about 40 minutes. Upon arrival you will be taken on a student-led tour of the school, before sitting in on a homeroom meeting. The timing is quite significant. What you are going to see is quite important and sometimes only lasts for 5 or 10 minutes, so we ask that you don’t arrive any later than 9.00am.

After your visit, if you would like to enrol at Alia, your next step is to come for a Trial Day.
