    My kids went to Livingstone 7 years ago before we moved away. At the time it was a fanatics school.

    Had to laugh, did you mean fantastic not fanatics?
    I have heard they are very strict on religion there. My neighbors kids go there and they are happy but it was too religion focused for me to consider.
    My firstborn goes to Rivermount. Absolutely nothing bad to say about it! WONDERFUL school community, great staff who really care and are good at what they do. The school environment is beautiful also. Set on 40 acres (I think) but they have set a limit to how big the school numbers will get so they won't get too big. I think that's important. It's been such a relief to us that the school we chose is living up to our expectations

    The one thing I've heard about Coomera Anglican is its getting squishie. And it's hard to get into because of its location, but it does have a great reputation.

    Lol, I agree with the fanatics comment, even if it was a typo. They take religion very seriously and unless your kids have a strong BAC background you might find it overwhelming (I'm of a Christian faith and found the stuff they taught way OTT).

    CAC are really good. I've seen them turn out only lovely kids and the kids I know who go there now really enjoy it. They hold their students to a high level for sure.
