Parents can enrol directly in a G.A.T.E.WAYS Festival of Workshops. Festivals are special programs offering a large range of workshops running concurrently over two days, with the emphasis on challenge and fun. Students studying chemistry might make bath bombs or the easily broken glass from a Hollywood movie set; those for a passion for language might solve cryptic crosswords or participate in a feisty Slam Poetry competition; others might experience the passion of Latin American dance or uncover the mystery of magic tricks.

Traditionally mid-year festivals are held in Melbourne and Canberra, whilst a September festival is held in Queensland.

End of year festivals for primary students, including a special festival for Preps, are held each December in Melbourne. All Festival details and enrolment procedures can be viewed on our website a term in advance.
