MBOMBELA – Private schools took part in the fifth annual Edu-expo at Riverside Mall this past weekend.

Andrienne Cleary, who organised the expo, said the purpose was to supply information to parents and pupils about prospective schools.

“This was more like a one-stop shop. Parents could take different brochures and decide which school best suits their needs.”

Cleary said the exhibition has grown in leaps and bounds since its inception.

“This year we even had schools from Pretoria exhibiting.

“If parents are considering sending their children to boarding school outside the province, they had the opportunity to explore the various option at this expo.

“Our focus though was to work closely with local schools.

“We are planning on filling all the other courts of the mall next year and schools will then have an even bigger opportunity to market themselves in terms of what they offer,” she said.

Llyod Mareere said the exhibition was helpful. “I am looking at a better school for my daughter. For me it is not about the curriculum of the school only, it is about culture, the extramural activities and sport.

“Those are the things that I will definitely consider for the preparedness of my daughter,” he said.

Penryn College, Curro, Meridian Karino, Metropolitan group of schools and the King’s School in White River exhibited.
