School Search – A Crucial Part of Relocating Your Family
11th May, 2016
A school search service is a vital part of relocating your family, which can often be fraught with difficulties and indecision. Kent’s National Service Manager, Lisa Fink, recently spoke with The Age, about the many factors to be considered during the school relocation process, and just how important it can be; Lisa said ‘parents often request that their child’s schooling is confirmed before any other aspect of their relocation’.
Sending a child to a private school, from prep through to year 12, can be an expensive decision to make. In addition, in recent years, the competition for places at private schools has become even fiercer, making school selection an extremely difficult decision for parents, especially when combined with relocating to an unfamiliar town or city. Evidently, a school search cannot be taken lightly.
