My children attend a small private school in Abberfoyle Park. I have been so enlightened with their progress there I thought I would share my experience with you.
The school caters for years R-7 and is situated next to the local Lutheran Church. At this time there are a mixture of single year classes and mixed year classes. Initially I was vert scepitcal about the mixed year classes but I must say the idea has really grown on me. They seem to have it very well organised and despite my twins being in grade 4 in a 3/4 class they do grade 5 maths. I dont feel for one minute that they are being 'held back'.
In 2010, due to the fact that there are so many children in the years 5,6 and 7 the school are intorducing an 8th class. This will mean low numbers in classes and more vacancies in all years.
If you are considering moving to the Southern Suburbs and are considering a private school please consider checking this one out. The principal is more than willing to give you a no obligation guided tour and I am sure you will be impressed.
If you have any questions please feel free to pm me.
I asked the Principal to write a short introduction advertising what the school has to offer so that I could post it on here for all who may be interested in checking it out once they arrive.
This is what he wrote:
