SWAT will be held on Sunday 18 August 2019 at Parkside Ballroom 1 in the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), 14 Darling Drive, Sydney NSW 2000 (map).
Parkside Ballroom 1 will be arranged as an examination hall with ergonomic chairs and tables, providing children with the opportunity to experience the 'big exam hall' setting, possibly for the first time. Through our extensive educational experience at North Shore Coaching College, we have found that by practising sitting an examination with hundreds of other students in a large hall reduces test anxiety and improves performance when it comes to the 'real deal'. This will prove invaluable for the OC, Selective High School Placement tests and Scholarship examinations. Students will be arranged by year; further seating information will be made available on the day.

Note: For the SWAT exam the chairs and tables will be provided and arranged as you see in the photo above.
The International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) is a world-class multipurpose set of venues, located centrally at the heart of its own harbourside precinct (so there's plenty to explore after the education seminar or after the exam with your kids!). It's just a short 10-minute walk from Central or Town Hall train stations. The ICC Sydney also has its own bus and light rail stops, as well as two parking facilities.
