Highly recommend. From Year 7, they have specialised teachers for different subjects and are pushed to achieve to the best of their abilities. In intermediate, subjects like science, music and social studies are taught as core subjects, rather than a subject rotation/ or something they do for only a term. They still get to explore a range of tech subjects. The intermediate years set them up for high school. The school is a good size, no one gets lost in the system and students are well managed. Modern school facilities and grounds.
The school is great with sport, especially small codes. spends too much money on major sports. perfect place to achieve high academic results. Teachers are very varied some great ones and some pretty bad ones but overall decent. it imposes very good values and catholic thinking, great with service and donating money to charities. teaches us to be fine young college men.
It is not a bad school overall, with some amazing teachers but there are the odd couple that I feel let down there average. I also feel that they focus to much on furthering their own image instead of helping their students reach the best of their ability.
Generally a good school with experienced teachers in core subjects and a strong emphasis on sporting (particularly rugby and cricket). There is a paucity of expertise in smaller subjects, with some newer/younger teachers clearly not knowing what they teach. Equally there are a select few older, cranky teachers who clearly dislike youth and enjoy shutting down any fun - even at lunchtimes.
