School Expo observations

Date posted: 09 Jan 2012
Lindsay Francis, Executive Director of Christian Schools Australia SA was at the expo both days. He said CSA exhibited to build their profile in the community and increase awareness. I interviewed him and recorded his observations . . .
• The most frequent questions asked related to location and fees.
• Our low fees are attractive. Also our caring culture for all abilities.
• Discipline questions were frequently raised.
• Parents like children to wear a school uniform.
• Families came from far and wide to gather information.
• Enquiries were genuine.
• On Saturday we recorded 60+ enquiries, even more on Sunday.
• We increased awareness about CSA to a wide cross-section who may have been considering other options before they talked to us.
