The 2011 Sydney School Education Expo™ will get a taste of education with a difference this Saturday and Sunday, as Outward Bound sets up a stall to encourage students to unlock their potential by attending a Navigator Course in the great Aussie outdoors.

Outward Bound’s stall will give students, parents and teachers an opportunity to learn about the Youth and Family courses and connect face-to-face with Outward Bound staff.

Over two days, Outward Bound staff will speak to visitors about the challenges of finishing school and transition into adulthood that can be overcome with the confidence, resilience and life-skills learnt during Outward Bound programs.

The School Education Expo™, now in its seventh year, is an award-winning community event which showcases everything educational for school years.

Public Enrolments Officer Phoebe Saunders said Outward Bound’s presence at the expo will encourage visitors to think outside the box about education.

“It’s a great way to open teachers’ & parents’ eyes to opportunities outside the classroom that will help students learn more about their strengths and abilities,” Ms Saunders said.

“Our Youth and Family courses offer an experiential style of education, where teenagers and parents can learn about themselves and connect with people in a setting away from the home and school environment.”


School Education Expo™ Organiser Elizabeth Christie said the expo provides exhibitors with a unique opportunity to showcase their products, resources and services.

“The expo is a powerhouse of information on everything educational from early learning to Year 12,” Ms Christie said.

Outward Bound Australia will be located at booth G6 at The School Education Expo™,   3 & 4 September 2011 at the Sports Centre, Olympic Boulevard, Sydney Olympic Park.
