Parents and the local community are invited to attend open days and tours 
of their school or kindergarten. Many are also holding events 
particularly for grandparents and other special guests.

There are opportunities to experience how technology is being used in the 
classroom with netbook and information technology presentations and 
displays and events around specific subject areas such as science and 
maths.

Some schools are also taking the opportunity to promote their special 
areas of interest through gardening projects, celebrations of different 
cultures in their community, and renewable energy workshops.
