    Hopefully you can find some French teachers to work at your school because I certainly wouldn't want to start teaching at 8:30 and not finish until 4:30 I currently live 50km from my work and that means I would hardly ever see my kids working those hours and wouldn't have any time to take them to dancing, girl guides, swimming lessons, football training, etc. even if I lived 10 mins from work.
    I think she meant Cafeteria rather than canteen.

    Canteen as in a place where all the kids go and are served a hot meal with starter and desert that they eat sitting around a table?
    The one in my area don't offer that.

    We have already several French teachers in line for the job! 😊

    What hours do most teachers work here? I think shorter hours would be good for kids in kindy to maybe year 2 as I think after a few hours most 5-7 year olds would switch off , same with homework , we only have sight words and home readers with no set time frame but some of DS friends from pre school last year who are in different schools have sheets of homework every week in kindy!

    Most are in at 8-8.30 and there until 5 for all the programming they have to do. Then there is the disco supervision, the school camps and other extra curricular stuff they do.

    French teachers work load isn't so bad actually

    ~44hrs of work per week and 16 weeks of paid holiday per year 😁

    We knew the people who started the school when we lived in Melbourne. Not close friends just people we knew as locals in our area. We seriously looked at sending the girls there until we moved to wa. It was there or the independent school on Brunswick st (which was next door to our house).

    Yes it's lycee Condorcet. They do the French curriculum only and you pay ~$10k a year but if you're French you can get a scholarship from the French gvt.

    I'm weirded out by that independent school on Brunswick st. Can't explain the feeling and I ought to do more research about it and pay them a visit.
    I hear they do really well too.

    Two great examples of people setting up successful private schools 😊
