Good news! Finding the perfect school for your family just got easier, thanks to the return of the HoneyKids Asia International School Fair, happening next weekend!
Sound the trumpets and roll out the red carpet: The HoneyKids Asia International School Fair is back! Returning in 2021 for its 7th edition, at this year’s fair you’ll get to see the top international schools in Singapore coming together in one place, at one time (socially-distanced, of course!). What does this mean for you? No more trawling from school to school to figure out which one suits your child best.
Principals and admission staff will be at the ready to answer any questions you may have on everything from bilingualism and early years education, to deciphering curricula and the cost of schooling (eek!). There’ll also be a host of insightful panel talks on hot schooling topics, so fire your questions at the experts and listen to wise words that could help you make that all-important schooling decision.
Mark it in your diaries, parents: Fairmont Hotel, Saturday 13 March 2021, 9am to 5.45pm! Please note – due to Covid-19 restrictions for live events, you will be asked to reserve a 2-hour slot during the day which will include 1 panel discussion (see below for the schedule) and time to visit the exhibition at your leisure either before or after the talk.
This is a FREE event but registration is required due to Covid-19 restrictions.
