Completely depends on where we are living. If we're still here, out of zone public till yr6. Melbourne, I have no idea. Singapore, still no idea.
Have they hinted as to where in Melbourne you may be transferred yet?
We could probably stretch to Private, however we wont be. DH is top of his trade and i have a PhD... we were both 100% publicly schooled and have done more than alright. Also the public schools around us have very good reputations - particularly the Primary School.
I think that if you instill good habits and respect at home regarding attitude to school then the child will perform to their best in most school situations.
We are not rich, dp is still an apprentice but we would send DD to the school we have chosen at all costs.
It is the closest school to where we live and it happens to be the one I went to, a small catholic school that has the most beautiful community and teachers/students. It is incredibly important to me that she gets the same education I got (private) because I can see how badly the public system left DP behind
I could not afford private but even if i could i wouldn't send ds to one UNLESS there were no good schools in the area.I don't believe in single sex schools for a start.
I am lucky in that ds goes to a really good public school and i am very happy with it.
If we are in the same area in 6 years time we will stick to our current plan of public primary school and then private high school.
