    Default Any Berwick mums here? Need help choosing a school fast!

    On Friday I was planning to pay the place acceptance deposit at Hillcrest Christian College but today my son received another offer - from St Francis Xavier College. I am leaning towards Hillcrest as they do somewhat better in the rankings and seem to have better overall facilities. My husband is heavily biased towards St Francis Xavier for the sole reason that it is a Catholic School (we are Catholic). Neither one of us is budging at the moment but a decision has to be made by 5pm Friday . Unless I accept forfeiting the $600 acceptance fee I guess, that would buy us more time to decide.

    Anyone here that has children at either and can comment?

    My husband did his teaching rounds at SFX and said it was a good school- no idea about the other one. Are there friends who have their kids at either school?? Which one is easier to get to transport wise etc. class sizes, VCE results??
