Sheidow Park Primary schools - Any info??

    Recommended Posts

    HI - does anyone know anything about Catholic Primary schools around the Sheidow Park area? We've just got a rental there for when we emigrate at the end of August but we don't know anything about the schools... I have found one school - St Martin de Porres, but there isn't a school website as such to find any more info on it - does anyone have any experience of it or know if it's any good?? My daughter will be 5 this June, so will be doing a reception yr again. Also would you advise that we get her in a school as soon as we get there, or should we give her a few weeks to settle first? Also when does the nearest term to Sept start?? Is it Oct? Too many questions i know!!:wacko: Thanks, Jacinta

    Yep I would advise getting her into school as soon as possible( after a few days to recover of course). If she has been at school already then that is something she knows about. She will meet possible new friends and is one fewer little people to keep entertained while you go around and do all the boring stuff.

     

    term 4 starts 12 October. Term 3 ends 24thish September. Holidays are 2 weeks long.

    Thanks for that... yep that was my thinking too - get her in there... but couldn't decide if that would just be for my benefit [which it DEFINITELY WOULD!!!:D] or for hers too !! You've made me feel better [and less guilty about doing it now!].

    Hi Jacinta,

    My 3 girls go to St Martins and I am pleased with it so far. The website is www.stmartin.adl.catholic.edu.au

    Was going to just add that myself Worzel. Is it because you want a catholic education that you are choosing St Martins or because you want a private school? If it isn't for the religious reasons, I would check out the couple of local state primaries as they are not bad schools

    Hi Jacinta,

    Luckily on the school run there are no traffic lights, because we really do leave at the last minute!
