So with issues as they are I feel moving schools is best.

In Adelaide west what schools are good (primary) - is we think going catholic because it’s cheaper than private and get better structure (not guaranteed I know) plus it will help with high school as she was enrolled years ago for two catholic high schools so may as well get her into it now

We are not religious in any way although my husband is a non practicing catholic and my moms partner is a practicing catholic (interstate)

Has always had a reasonably good reputation. If you are considering moving schools still I’d recommend doing a tour when the classes are on/lunch break so you can see the dynamics in the community & try to feel if it will be a good fit.
I wouldn’t worry about not being Catholic- if they have a spot I’m sure they would take your daughter. Aside from the big colleges in Adelaide most catholic schools only have approx 25-40% Catholic (baptised Catholic) with less than 20% of those families practicing Catholics, they will just ask that you support the Catholic dimension of the school
