Welcome to Private School News Australia
Selecting a private school for my son was one of the most challenging things I have done as a parent. Visiting multiple school websites, checking when principal tours and open days were on. Not knowing if there was a waiting list for the schools I had shortlisted. Knowing how much the school fees were and understanding the school's academic performance were all things I had to research and find out. When you are looking across ten potential schools, either locally or in another region was very time consuming and frustrating.
During this process, I realised the Australian private school sector lacked a conclusive and reliable source of information that went beyond individual school websites and government databases. The research processes was very time consuming and I thought there had to be a better way. From that Private School News Australia was created.
