Our Leaders in Residential Communities Symposium in Perth on 18 and 19 August has come together nicely, and registrations are now open. We encourage everyone who is a Leader in a Boarding House to consider coming along and learning from our speakers and workshop presenters, and to enjoy a wonderful networking event.
Work has also been done on our web page and social media presence lately - a key part of our offerings. We are keen to get more people to follow us on Facebook (like the page Australian Boarding Schools Association), and on Twitter and Instagram (@austboarding) - lots of interesting information is posted to these site regularly.
There has been some wonderful publicity for Boarding Schools during recent weeks - on ABC Radio, in Flight Magazines, in the Weekend Australian Magazine and shortly in the Sydney Morning Herald. If you have a 'good news story' please share it with us and we will work to get the good word out to the community.
Two exciting developments are underway - we will hold our first Boarding School Expo in Tasmania later in the year - more information on this will be forthcoming in coming months. Also we are well underway with the Boarding Standards work with Standards Australia - the committee for reviewing this is forming and will meet in early May - we will keep you informed.
Enjoy the Easter break, and the holidays which follow!
