In 2017, Estilo Sports Travel once again sponsored the Association of Independent Schools of NSW conference held at the Crown Plaza in the Hunter Valley. The conference is designed for school sports staff and hosts several excellent keynote speakers and practical workshops. Without a doubt, the highlight of the conference was the keynote speech delivered by Kurt Fearnley – a truly remarkable Australian.
The conference offers us an excellent opportunity to communicate directly with schools and teachers about their expectations and experiences related to touring. It is extremely positive to hear that the consensus from staff is that the touring experience is an incredibly rewarding experience for the students and one that increases bonds between the group. The relationships many of the staff have established with colleagues abroad from both hosting touring teams and travelling themselves, have developed into lifelong friendships.
