Education is a cornerstone of every successful and harmonious society, with schools a focal point in each community they serve. Independent schools are notable for their diversity, catering for families of all cultures, faiths and background, and this year’s co-host of the IFLC, Amity College is an outstanding example of a school that makes an invaluable contribution to its local community, providing opportunities for every child to reach his or her potential.
The Association of Independent Schools of New South Wales is proud to support the 2016 IFLC and wishes the festival every success.
