VISOs are a famous Turi tradition. They are the opportunity for parents and extended family to visit the School and partake in some exciting events. These include sporting events, theatrical performances, musicals, chapel services, horse riding displays, Speech Day and The Parade Service (uniformed organisations). It is also a chance to meet teachers and discuss academic and pastoral progress on a 1-2-1 basis. The admissions departments are available to discuss any new entrants and the Turi merchandise is available for purchase at both the Prep and Senior School.
Many parents decide to stay in nearby hotels or in the School campsite. Parents enjoy socialising around the campfire at night or making use of the Rising Phoenix staff club during the evening. Food can be cooked or purchased from the popular ‘Food Court’, a collection of tents offering a range of meals and light refreshments throughout the weekend.
