I am at a bit of a fork in the road and am after any opinions that people have to offer.
We are due to send out eldest son to school next year and we are tossing up wether to send him to a Government school or a private school. The schools on our list are:
- Glenorchy Primary
- Springfield Gardens
- Sacred Heart
- St Marys/St Virgils
Both myself and my partner went to Catholic Schools. I loved primary and college, but loathed the high school i went to. My partner loved every minute of his schooling. While I would like to send our son to the school I went to (his dad did all his schooling in Launnie), I have heard mixed reviews that its nothing like it used to be.
Both my parents went through the public system, and they scrimped and saved to send my sister and I through the private system, which all in all was kind of pointless because the jobs we have both gotten could have been acheived through any form of schooling. Mum seems to believe that she forked all the money out so that we could pop the school on our resumes.
I am mainly after any feedback on the above schools or any others that have been really good. I find that a school website can boast about the school as much as they want, but at the end of the day its other parents experiences that I am after.
