Families who are looking at what Australia has to offer in secondary school education for their children should attend the Australian Secondary School Exhibition and cocktail party, which will be held in the Napalai Ballroom at the Dusit Thani Hotel on Silom Road from 11am to 4pm, on Saturday, July 4.

It is for interested families whose children are studying at either Thai or international schools.
Organised by the Bangkok-based family team Andrew and Tracey Gray of Ceta (Complete Education and Touring Australia), and supported by the Australian embassy, this is the only secondary school exhibition of its kind in Thailand.

Senior school representatives from 25 top private and government schools from five Australian states will be available to talk to families about experiences and opportunities for Thai students to complete secondary school studies in Australia.

They will be offering advice and counsel on the features and advantages of a secondary education in Australia. Parents can enquire about the teaching styles and curricula in Australia, including details on accommodations for international students at ESL (English as a Second Language), boarding, day, government, private, boys', girls' and co-ed schools. Language translators will be on hand.

According to Anne Reynolds, Australian Education International Senior Counsellor at the Australian embassy, meeting representatives of Australian secondary schools during this exhibition is an opportunity for parents and students to see and learn how a school will equip their child to adapt and integrate into a new environment - both academically and culturally - and find out how the school will enable students to become future global citizens.

A special seminar conducted by Australian Education International (AEI) through the Australian embassy, titled, "Preparing Your Child to Study in Australia and What to Expect", will also be presented during the exhibition.

Parents will get direct advice from representatives of a variety of Australian schools. This will assist them in understanding how an early overseas study qualification from Australia can benefit their child's future. The admission is free.

The Australian school regulations are established to inform and protect international students.
Australia provides Thai secondary school students with a relatively safe environment that is only a seven-to-nine-hour flight from Thailand. Parents can easily obtain a tourist visa to visit their children; and within the period of a tourist visa, parents themselves are free to study non-formal short courses in English, if they desire.
