We are in Vic and we have two classes of 30 kids each - cause people keep moving here and the school HAS to take them. They come purely to get into the zone for high school, which sucks, but is understandable. I just wish they would move earlier than grad six so that classes could be better planned and less crowded.

20 years ago I realise, but surely they are not reinventing the wheel or anything?

I would still report them to the education dept so they don't get away with this again though, just wouldn't send my child there.

Hi all - well I had meeting with principal on Monday, he was nice but refused to accept the fact that they should take her according to dept policy, or that they had done anything wrong in turning away so many local kids. However he did tell me someone had (luckily!) recently withdrawn their application so he could squeeze my child in if I still wanted the place!! So he has told me to take some time to think about it .. um, ok! I think even with all the issues this is still the best choice for my child and for our family, so I called this morning and left a message advising we would take the place offered. So (hopefully) a happy ending thanks to all who had messages of support, much appreciated

Wow. Sounds like someone's on a power trip.
Good on you for contacting the dept and not taking this lying down. I wonder how many other complaints they've received about this guy/school but those parents have given up rather than pursue it?
