Spring Into Glennie

27 July 2015

Spring into Glennie

Your daughter does not have to take the first step to boarding school on her own. If you are considering boarding as an option, you are invited to come along with your daughter for a boarding experience at Glennie.

While you take time to relax and explore Toowoomba at its finest during The Carnival of Flowers, your daughter will be immersed in the Glennie experience, learning new skills, making friends and having fun.

Share the experience, together. Stay in Glennie’s comfortable accommodation. Join your daughter’s program, or pamper yourself with the activities planned just for you.

By the end of four days, boarding will no longer be a mystery. Both you and your daughter will be ready for the next step.

Stay with us for a few days to experience life at The Glennie School.  Find out what boarding is like:

  • Make new friends
  • Learn new skills
  • Have fun!

Monday 21 to Thursday 24 September 2015

Visit the website for more information and to register.

Glennie families are invited to share this information with friends who may be looking at boarding options for their daughter.
