High Schools in Port Noarlunga / Aldinga area

    Recommended Posts

    Guest jlr248

    Have been looking at house prices, areas, schools, forum opinions etc for last two years and had been as sure as you can be without a reccie that south Adelaide and probably Reynella High was the place for us / school for our 2 14year olds. However over recent months there has been lots of talk about up and coming suburbs even further south such as Port Noarlunga, Seaford, Aldinga, Moana (you get the picture). Have looked and it appears that two schools, Seaford High and Wirreanda? are the main options for these areas. Can anyone tell me anything about them and also are there any other options (state only please). Also any opinions about Reynella and how they may compare or differ. Thanks for your time

    There is also Chrisites Beach high school, but out of the three if i was in the area i would opt for Wirreanda. Its a sporty high school, has the usual school issues - but no where near as grim as Seaford or CB. IMO

    My teens went to Seaford 6-12, they said the teachers mess around on their phones more than the kids, didnt give a toss if the kids worked or not.

    My middle daughter is at Willunga HS and is doing really well, theres still the usual crap that goes on at high school, but the teachers are so pro active and actually quite nice to the kids.

    Just my opinion.

    There are several bus stops in Aldinga for Willunga high but they don't pick up from your house!

     

    Aldinga has a small shopping centre but Seaford is only 10 minutes up the road

    Hi

     

    Also take a look at Cardijn Catholic and Tatachilla Lutheran College...both fee paying high schools. Mine go to Tatachilla, which Im really pleased with and I have many friends whose kids go to Cardijn (more sporty,) who are also say good things about.

    Wirreanda is rough as!! I have just taken my son out of there it was awful, he's going to Tatachilla now. Out of whats available state wise I'd def go for Reynella East. Also, don't forget Hallet Cove, they taking from P Noarlunga area too.

    Funny how opinions differ.....our friends who have lived in Australia all their life and are ex-teachers said that Reynella East have a big bullying problem. How true this is I don't know but it just goes to show how what's good for one may not be good for another!

     

    When we were over last year activating my OH visa we liked Willunga High and if we ever get to Oz that's where our 2 will be going.

    My daughters go to Reynella East and have never had a bullying issue! They were made to feel welcome from the offset and have enjoyed their time there.

    I agree with McGintyoz - my daughter did all her high schooling at Reynella East and never experienced bullying and my son is currently in yr 12 - same as McGintys girls - and has had no problems either. We have been very happy with the school.
