The Hills Schools Expo will be held on Saturday & Sunday March 4 – 5, 10am – 4pm both days at the Harvey Lowe Pavilion, Castle Hill Showground.

This free event is an unparalleled opportunity to meet with teachers and principals from Australia’s leading independent schools and discover the many school options available to families in the area.

The Hills district has long been home to a huge variety of excellent schools, offering a diverse range of facilities and teaching styles. Now, school choice for local parents has expanded even further. Thanks to the new Metro North West train line and increased school bus services, families have easy access to more schools than ever.

Boarding, either weekly or throughout the term, is another increasingly popular choice for families in the area, particularly for older students.

But with so much choice, it can be hard to know where to start. That’s why the Hills Schools Expo is an important resource for local families. Parents can cut through the noise to get a real feel for a school’s values and culture. This is vital because independent schools do more than teach. They are also tasked with upholding the values of their school communities and passing them on to the next generation.

Every school has its strengths. The right school for your child is the one where they can succeed personally as well as academically. The Expo can help you find that school. Exhibitors at this year’s event include single-sex, co-ed, boarding and faith-based schools from kindergarten to senior high school, in Sydney, Canberra and country NSW.

At the Expo, parents are invited to engage in detailed discussions with school staff to deeply explore a school’s offerings and suitability for their child. From information on scholarships to extracurricular opportunities and specialised programs for gifted and talented students, families can learn everything they need to know to take the next step in their school search.

You can conduct days of research in a single outing while also establishing a personal connection with your school of choice.

Every child is unique. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to find the school to which your child is uniquely suited.
