    Any opinion on the above school? Is it state or privately run?

     

    Thanks in advance...

    It's a private school. It is Christian faith based. The fees will be affordable if you are working. See here for schedule. http://www.svcc.sa.edu.au/__files/f/1816/2012%20Fee%20Schedule.pdf

     

    Christian schools in the main are caring, have few major behavioural problems and do well at catering for the average child. If you are not religious there is often a HUGE emphasis on a bible based curriculum, if your child is not familiar with this sort of environment it may be uncomfortable. However I do know people who still send their kids to these schools because it is an affordable alternative.

    thanks, my son is at a christian based school but here they push the child rather than let them plod so to speak...he is classed as a gifted and talented student and is achieving top grades and doing an A Level here so I want him to go to a comparable school at least. He wants to be a pharmasist.

    probably just go to the schools you have in mind and have a chat about what they can offer your son when you get here. Of course if your child excels they will accomodate that too.
