Families in the Inner West have a new, local, forum to discover more about the range of excellent independent schools servicing their area.
For the first time, the Independent Schools Expo is hosting a dedicated Inner West event at the Le Montage function centre in Lilyfield on Sunday, May 1.
Choosing the right school can be a difficult decision for parents. With so many educational options on offer, gathering enough information to make an informed choice is a complex and time-consuming task.
At the Inner West Independent Schools Expo, parents can meet face-to-face with staff and students from some of Sydney’s leading private schools – in one convenient location. Days of research can be accomplished in just a few hours.
Expense, location, academic standards and facilities are all important factors when selecting a school; but equally vital to a child’s happiness and success is a school’s culture.
Many parents look to independent schooling to foster traditional values in children, such as self-discipline, integrity and respect for themselves and others. A good education is expected to produce confident, grounded adults well-prepared for life after graduation with the skills to achieve their full potential.
But schools are not a one-size-fits-all proposition. To determine the best fit for your child, it is important to consider a number of questions. What is the school’s focus? In what areas does it excel? Can it accommodate your child’s strengths and needs? Is its social atmosphere suited to your child’s temperament?
As well as the right educational environment, parents will want to find a school that is in harmony with their own family values and beliefs.
Above all, parents want their children to enjoy school. To feel a sense of belonging and social ease among like-minded friends in a safe and caring school community.
At the Expo, families are encouraged to engage with school representatives and explore their offerings in detail to find the best match between school and child.
Participating schools include boarding and day schools, single sex, co-ed, faith-based and secular options from preschool to Year 12.
Every child is unique. Here is your opportunity to find the school to which your child is uniquely suited.
