    I looked at Silkwood, too, online. It looks like it could be a great place to go! I actually looked into Steiner schools when my first started, but there were none in the area. Does anyone know anything about:

    I really appreciate all of your help. I really just want a great place for them to learn and grow. Both boys, but especially my oldest, is really scared of moving. He is leaving behind his friends, and his grandparents and cousins. He is excited, but scared. I want him to be at a place he can be excited about. He is pretty advanced academically, but socially he is pretty immature (really, really shy).

    We lived in Coomera for 3 years and it's not that bad. Sure, it's a high rental area, but as in all suburbs, some streets are a bit more 'scumbaggy' than others. I liked living there.
    Hi I know it has been a while since you posted this, but can you please tell me why you won't send your children to CAC? I'm deciding between Saint Stephen's and CAC for prep next year and I have a little time to make up my mind. Thanks

    If you can afford it, I couldn't recommend The Southport School enough! It's pricey but honestly worth every dollar. Both of my brothers went and my son will be attending (whether DF likes it a lot). It has every co-curricular you can think of. Sport, music, cadets, brilliant teachers and always good results.

    It is sooooo so hard to get a spot at Silkwood, especially if you haven't attended the playgroups.

    My boy was accepted to Silkwood, but due to his additional needs I'm sending him to William Duncan now, as they have a great SEP and Silkwood just isn't equipped to give him the right support. Still hoping to send my daughter there.

    I hope he's doing really well at William Duncan. I heard they're great.
    I didn't know it was that hard to get into Silkwood Independent School. I thought you just had to sign up early.
