    Firstly id wait and see how the appointment at the school that does have space goes.
    If they refuse you then you need to speak to the education department and work with them to find a suitable solution.

    If you are in a schools zone they have to take you. Cap or no cap if you fall within the boudaries on the map then you're in.

    cap or no cap, i still need to decide if my kids get in would i put them in classes with well over 30 kids per class.

    I am seriously looking at if there are options for me to get a night job (even in corrections) and home school if the worst comes to the worst. sigh

    SA.

    the other option is riving up to 40minutes one way to a suitable unzoned school. or keeping them in their current school and travelling over 1 hr each way.

    Private! I would prefer to spend $$$ to have my child get an education with smaller class size, less behaviour issues etc then a class of 30 with students who constantly misbehave- as they will be getting less one on one teacher time and more time being distracted.

    Thats why I was asking the state. What grades would your children be in op? Class sizes are determined by averages overall and the year level too.

    Also does the private school know your child is gifted? Often that makes a difference.
