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.

This year, our mid-year Festivals will be held in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra.

End of year Festivals for primary students, including a special Festival for Preps, are held each December in Melbourne. Sydney will also run its first end of year Festival this year. All Festival details and enrolment procedures can be viewed on our website a term in advance.
