Hi, I'm looking for peoples thoughts, experiences, reputations etc both good and bad of primary schools in Adelaide. We currently live in Brahma lodge so preferably schools within this zone or that will accept students from any suburb. But its possible we could live elsewhere by the time Shes ready to start school so any info for any schools will be helpful. I'm from interstate so don't have knowledge of schools like i do from my home state. Thanks for your help.  :-)

Most schools in that area don't have zones enforced.

It's hard to really give much indication because there are a lot of primary schools in that area. If you are moving, that's even harder because in some areas, every suburb has a primary school. You'd need to narrow it down to a broad area at least.

I would look at independent and Catholic schooling as well as public, however.

My kids go to St Augustines Parish school  which is near Brahma Lodge, been a fantastic school for my two oldest so far. We were previously at Para Vista Primary which i do not recomend if you end up living near there. PM me if you want to know more  wink.gif

Salisbury Heights PS isn't too far and is supposed to be a good school for the area. May be one of the few zoned schools around there (or used to be i think).

There's quite a few public, private and catholic in the GG area too.

    Fidgets and other sensory hand held toys are a great way to encourage attention and concentration.
