North Shore School Expo: How to find the right school for your child (quickly)

North Shore School Expo

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to amazing schools to send our children to across the North Shore. But with all that choice, comes decision-making. To make that decision easier, The North Shore School Expo is back in Chatswood so you can get a better look at all Sydney’s leading private schools in one convenient location.

 North Shore families have access to perhaps the highest concentration of top schools to be found anywhere in Australia. These schools are not only excellent but also diverse, featuring a range of philosophies and teaching styles.

With so many good but very different options, choosing the right school can be a difficult and time-consuming decision for parents. Fortunately, the North Shore Schools Expo is here to help.

What is the North Shore Schools Expo?

This educational bonanza we are facing is a blessing, but choosing schools is no easy task. At the North Shore School Expo, parents can meet face-to-face with staff and students from many of Sydney’s leading private schools, including single sex, coed, boarding, Montessori, Steiner, faith-based and secular schools from pre-school to Year 12 — all in one convenient location.

At the North Shore School Expo, parents and families will be able to discuss their child’s specific educational needs with principals and teaching staff from a wide variety of schools that offer various learning methodologies, and emphasis on academic excellence and fostering high achievement in sport, music and the arts.

Days of research can be accomplished in just a few hours, as families are encouraged to engage deeply with participating schools to find the best match for their child.

How to ask the right questions

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.

Every child is unique. Here is your opportunity to find the school to which your child is uniquely suited.
