It has become a tradition to hold a formal dinner for the parents (or guardians) at which a short video of the first semester is shown and tales are told of all manner of adventures in the lives of our current cohort of students. The dinner will be held in the Timbertop Dining Hall. The evening will have a real Timbertop flavour with parents sitting at the tables with their children’s Unit Cluster, student slushies will assist in the serving of meals and the bell will be rung at appropriate times. There will be musical items performed by students and some short speeches by GGS Principal, Rebecca Cody and Head of Timbertop, Tom Hall. It is a fabulous night and we encourage you to come along and enjoy the fun.

Due to the size of the Timbertop Dining Hall, seating will be limited to two family members per student (except in the case of separated parents, where up to four seats can be reserved) and booking is essential.

Please note the Parents’ Dinner is strictly for parents or guardians only. Students and/or siblings are not able to attend. If you require babysitting for other children for the evening, you will need to make private arrangements off campus.

Timbertop students must stay on campus on the Friday evening of the Dinner. Exeat will commence on Saturday 17 August at approximately 10.00am following the parent/student crossie and will conclude on Tuesday 20 August at 6.00pm.

It is advisable to book your accommodation in the Mansfield region early to avoid disappointment. The School advises against spending exeat on Mt Buller. Travel up the mountain to return to accommodation has in the past been restricted owing to snowfall and slippery conditions. Most importantly though, in the past, students have not been able to get the rest they require if they ski and stay up late and often become ill when they recommence the programme. Exeat falls just before our four-day Bogong Highplains Winter Expedition and students need to be well rested before this snowcamping journey.
