Apprehensive at first about the idea of boarding school, 15-year-old Damon O’Sullivan from Dubbo has come to see the experience as one to cherish.
Starting at St. Ignatius’ College Riverview in 2018 was a big change from what Damon was used to at home, but it was a school tour prior to starting that gave him insight into what life might be like there.
“It made me really optimistic about attending Riverview.
“Being in a place where there are so many things to do was one of the great things about it…the art centre, the library was so big, and I imagined being by the river would be a really great experience.”
He spoke with Boarding Schools Expo about what life at Riverview has been like.
You can speak with the staff at Riverview or any of the other schools you might be considering, at the 2019 Boarding Schools Expos – in Dubbo on 17 and 18 May or in Tamworth on 26 and 27 July.
