This is more just a vent really .. my daughter is due to start prep next year. I sent in her enrolment papers for the local primary school, which is a 5-10 minute walk away, and today I received a letter saying sorry, too bad so sad but we are full, you'll have to try another school or go on the waiting list.
The closest goverment school apart from this one is a 10 minute drive .. and i don't particularly want to have to get 3 small children in the car every morning to drive to school if we can help it.
i called this afternoon to go on the waiting list and the office lady was so rude and horrible about it, complaining about how many people were trying to enrol at the school .. i know there are people who live much further away than we do who have been accepted, it just seems to unfair DD will have to go to a school in a different local area to where we live, and all her friends etc
anyway, as i said, just a vent! its nice to get it out of my head!!
