      Aldinga Beach Primary -again!

      so I know this has been asked before but I was hoping to hear from people with personal experience or knowledge..

      I know Aldinga Beach primary has a bad rep but this can stick to a school even if its no longer the case, there are a lot of new homes in Aldinga so kids must be going somewhere! I know there is southern vales n galilee and also McLaren Vale n willunga are now zoned....

      does anyone have any up to date information on aldinga Beach primary- or have kids there?

      I wld love to hear from you

      I like the look of Myponga Primary too but it has no OSCH which could be a problem

      looking forward to hearing from people :)

      My 3 girls have been in Aldinga for nearly 1 1/2 years and have done fairly well.

      However, we've recently received the naplan results and my 11 year old in year 5 received a level 8, the schools average is a 4!
      Some of the teachers are great, some not so great.

      I've applied for places at Galilee for my girls to start in January, we have our interview this week so fingers crossed. The reason that we are moving them is that even though the younger 2 are learning, the older daughter isn't. It seems to me that when they get higher up in the school, they work on the kids who's grades are lower down the scale than the brighter kids. I also like the idea of the smaller classes and it's not OTT on religion.

      Are you in Australia?
      Go and have a tour of the school, everyone has their own opinions.
