Whether you’re new to Singapore or thinking of changing your child’s current school, with so many fantastic international schools on our sunny island, picking one that suits your family can lead to choice paralysis for sure. And even though we can get a long way in our search with our amazing HoneyKids School Selector, when it comes to the final decision we’ll take any and all help on offer. And this is exactly why we’ve already hosted three hugely useful HoneyKids Asia International School Fairs with HSBC, where over 2000 parents got to meet over 20 of Singapore’s international schools on one day, and is why we’re doing it again: bigger and better than ever!
This time around we’re not only pulling together a plethora of top international schools and hosting a series of talks on all things schooling, we’re also widening the school pool to include overseas universities to help navigate the minefield that is the education pathway for older kids. So, mark Saturday 16 March 2019, 9am to 3pm in your calendar as THE date you can finally stop procrastinating (and, if you’re like us, panicking) about which school to choose. Read on for all the deets of this one stop shop for your education search and register now for access!
How can the fair help your search for the perfect school for learners of all ages?
The HoneyKids Asia International School Fair with HSBC is the only search tool you need for international schooling options in Singapore and overseas. Whether you’re an expat or a local parent, come along to research and discuss all aspects of schooling choices from pre-school to primary school, secondary school to further education overseas: all in one location, on one day. There’ll also be a host of other activities happening on the day to complement the experience: talks, workshops and expert partners will be on hand to offer advice on all things schooling and parenting.
What’s it all about?
Looking for an international school (or pre-school) in Singapore or neighbouring countries?
There’ll be over 20 Singapore international schools (including pre-schools) as well as international schools from around Asia on hand to speak to about everything from curriculum to pricing. Principals, staff and admissions officers will be happy to answer any questions on topics from pre-school years right through to secondary school options, and beyond.
Searching for an overseas university for your teenager?
If so, you’ll be stoked to hear that we’re adding an additional component to this fair (based on the feedback of parents) for those who need advice on the longer term plans for older kid’s education. Swing by for a chat with select universities and education consultants for wise words on which higher education routes suit your family best, and what overseas schooling options are available.
Attend useful talks, school workshops and meet expert partners
We’ve organised a host of other activities to help shape and support your school search. We’ll be running talks every hour, on the hour, covering hot topics such as early years learning, the differences between curriculums and how best to steer your child towards longterm academic success. More details on that to come, so keep your eyes peeled.
We’ll also be arranging workshops so your little one can see for themselves what life would really be like at the schools on your shortlist.
And if you’ve got other burning parenting questions, do look out for the experts we’re bringing in to cover topics on everything from affordable travel to school camp options, family entertainment to car safety, as well as partners with great advice on pediatrics, health insurance, saving money and more!
Enjoy free play time, goody bags and prizes too
If you decide to bring the kiddos along to the fair, we’ve got plenty going on to keep them busy with, as well as a fantastic goody bag valued at over $50 thanks to our friends at HSBC. It’s literally bursting at the seams with cool stuff including treats from Jamie’s Italian, stationery, water bottles, vouchers and more (it’s one per family and whilst stocks last). And let’s not forget the prizes… Just for turning up you’ll be in line for the chance to win some truly amazing things (more deets to come).
