Can anyone recommend some good primary schools in Brisbane? It looks like my husband will be taking a job up there and I'm trying to get an idea of where to start looking for a home so that we are near good schools, young families and great parks. We currently have a great house in the south of Adelaide, but the schools around us are very average and so we chose to enrol the kids further away (and for more money) than we really wanted. I don't want to find ourselves in the same position this time.
Ideally we would like to send our children (2 boys, one currently almost 4 years and the other only 7 days old) to a reputable public school or a mid-tier private school (not catholic or Anglican). Somewhere in a suburb near train or ferry and no more than 15km from the CBD. Our budget is probably $700k to $900k.
We have spent some time in Brisbane before so are familiar with some of the suburbs(particularly in the south and west) but know very little about the north.
Any advice would be appreciated (even if you could just tell me where to avoid like the plague).
