    Default Feedback on Carina & Mayfield State School Please

    Hi,
    My daughter is starting prep next year and most of her friends from child care are going to a private school.
    I have two public schools close by to choose from and wanted to hear of any parents that already have their children enrolled to hear their comments about either of the schools.
    I just want to make a good choice to get her off to a good start with her primary school education.
    Kind Regards,
    Kristy

    Do not send your child to Carina.

    Hi Salarie,

    we visited 4 schools, Carina, Cooperoo, Warrigal Road and Upper Mt Gravatt. Then we let our daughter decide :-)

    She choose Carina based on how friendly they were to her during the visit. That was a good enough reason for us. She was moving not just schools, but also countries. A stressful time and Carina's friendly welcome counted for a lot.

    Anyways, we were also very impressed with the meeting we had with the deputy principal, Jay and his ideas, and we just felt the school had a good vibe too. Sorry, don't know anything about Mayfield.

    Best of luck! Maybe we'll see you at Carina :-)
