Picking the best school is never easy, and we want to give our Sassy Mama readers the best…
It’s that time of year again mamas. The backpacks are prepped and packed, the morning alarms are set, and the summer holidays already feel a world away. We know the whole back-to-school buzz can turn a kid a bit blue, but we’ve got a chance for you to really take the stress out of the whole school situation!
Yup, you guessed it, The Hong Kong International Schools Festival is back! This annual mega event is all about bringing mamas, papas and tinies the full selection of international schools offered in our city – in a way that’s not at all scary or overwhelming (phew!). Whether your astute little student is in playgroup, kindergarten, primary school or secondary school, there’ll be exhibiting institutions catering to every need and answering every question.
We completely get that picking a school is a tricky task, mama, so we are definitely on board with any event working to make the process a little smoother! With principals and teachers from international schools all around town present, South China Morning Post is bringing us a unique, useful opportunity definitely worth popping in the calendar. Brought to us especially by SCMP, and their Education Post, these online and event-based resources offer a huge helping hand in this bustling city! The Hong Kong International Schools Festival is especially exciting since it’s handing over valuable insights about this long-term commitment: education. From your bub’s first school, to university programmes, these experts have got you covered.
The Secondary School spotlight looks to be just as valuable, with the selection of international secondary school exhibitors and a dedicated panel discussion. So if you’re considering pursuing the international education stream, the comprehensive info, useful tips and in-depth analysis will be right up your alley! Plus, as an even bigger bonus, financial aids and scholarship opportunities are also available for the right candidates. Hooray!
In case you weren’t yet sold, here’s the cherry on the cake: the entire event is completely free! Simply register for the Hong Kong International Schools Fair here and bring the whole clan to get the inside scoop on some of the top tier schools in Hong Kong. What’s more, the Good Schools Guide – International Schools 2017 – 2018 book can be reserved in advance when you register for the tickets!
