We only fall into one catchment zone for these schools, but have been told there're possibilities for inclusion at the others (from the school's admin).


Just looking for honest opinions and experiences of these schools?

Tapping
Spring Hill
East Wanneroo
Carramar

Carramar Primary all the way.  It's a great school with well behaved kids and the Principal does a very good job keeping everything running so smoothly even though it's a big school.

My son is at spring hill in pp. I love the school, all the teachers seem great but this year they only went up to year 2 so next year will be very different with the school going up to year 7. One of my daughters went to tapping and that was good too. The principal is fantastic. Hope that helps original.gif

Hi Dee & Perrypie


Thanks for that feedback original.gif  Quite like the feel of Spring Hills, and managed to meet one of the teachers.  The classes are composite though - how does everyone feel about this?

Out of interest, what time does the school start and what's he earliest time you can drop children off?

Carramar is very good. 8.40 start, kids can go in at 8.30 and there's outside school care on site from 6.30am to 6 pm

I've had mine at both Springhill and Tapping, Tapping is fantastic, I just love the way the school is run, the principal is amazing and the teaching staff are also fantastic and the school runs on a awesome set of ethos.

My kids go to East Wanneroo. (Going into year4 year2and PP)  It is a smaller, older school I am happy with the school.  They go on many excursions and camps .  Thet have many types of reward programs ranging from playground behaviour, classroom behaviour, reading programs etc.    the classromms are all airconditioned and they are in the process of putting electronic whiteboards in every classroom.

Start time is 8:40 kids can arrive from 8:15 there is also KidsBiz before and afterschool care onsite also.

I heard Tapping or Springhill dont do merit awards?  and i know many of those school dont do excursions?  

Most schools are quite similar I don't envy your situation.  Goodluck.
