The Sophia Mundi enrolment journey begins with an opportunity for us to get to know each other. We invite prospective students and their families to join us on a school tour.

Our tours are held on the first Tuesday of each month.  We also offer tours on the fourth Saturday of each month for those who find it difficult to visit on a weekday (please note that tours do not run during school holiday breaks).

Tuesday tours leave promptly from the School Reception at 9.30a.m.  Bookings are essential (see below for available dates).

Saturday tours also leave promptly from the school Reception on the hour, each hour between 10:00am – 1:00pm. Come along and meet our Principal and while you’re here, enjoy the Farmers Market which is held within the Abbotsford Convent precinct. When making a booking for a Saturday tour (see below for available dates), please select one of three available times from the drop down menu.

If you are unable to make it to any of these sessions, you can discuss a personal tour to suit your schedule. For further information please contact the

We remain committed to finding new and innovative ways of sharing our wonderful school with you.  In addition to attending a tour, we encourage you to click on the links below for a window into life at Sophia Mundi:
