The school is poorly organised and extremely frustrating to deal with. The Principals and Team Leaders are there to boost their profiles and egos not support children’s education.

The teachers seem to hate working there, it’s better at the senior end of the school than the junior.

Communication with parents is atrocious, it either feels like their spamming you or that you don’t hear anything - like my son who is about to get a new teacher but we didn’t know until the day before (when I complained) who it was going to be.

The reports don’t tell you anything about your child’s strength and areas for development.

There is an over-reliance on technology and low standards when it comes to children’s work. My eldest is a high achiever but when I compare what has been covered in his learning, it’s nowhere near what my friends’ kids have covered at other schools.

Extension activities such as Otago Problem Solving, Future Problem Solving and Mathex are available but the preparation is pretty appalling because in the words of one of the teachers (relayed by my child) “we’re a public school so can’t dedicate time in our curriculum for this”.

I’ll be glad when my kids leave. They’ll be repeating the year levels in our home country to plug the gaps (and there are many) so I am not too concerned. If you’re only educating your kid here, rethink it.

It's an amazing school

This is an amazing school that both my children love attending!!!
The teachers really care about their students and how they are coping with life and the school work they are assigned.
