My children don't go to those schools BUT to similar catholic schools.
They seem to have a good reputation and a loyal following eg Father/son etc

Kedron seems to be a public school that tries to act like a private school in some ways. It has a good reputation to my knowledge. My SIL children go there, now Yr11 and she is very happy.

1. is a Catholic girls school
2. is a Catholic boys school
3. is a co-ed state school

All three are decent schools with solid reputations. But it really depends on what you're looking for, for your child, to know if a school is a good fit or not.

I know what Im looking for, just after feedback so i can be sure.. Ive had tours of both the private schools, but Im thinking the co-ed would work better for my sons, Padua came across as extremely sporty and my older son is not. Not sure how much that would matter. Kedron SHS seems to have an excellent subject selection.

Kedron SHS has a great reputation - I know it by reputation only. If we lived nearby I’d happily send my kids there. Single sex education is not a route I’d choose so the other school are not on my radar. I had never heard of Mount Alvernia until about a month ago when I saw an ad. I’ve never met anyone that went there. I’ve lived in Brisbane my entire life and on the north side for over a decade.

My information is really outdated, but kedron has always had a very good reputation, even 20 years ago it was a good school.

Padua & Mt alvernia are Catholic sister schools & was the default high school for the kids from the catholic primary school near me to attend. Padua was quite sports orientated, which suited the 3 boys I know who attended. i don't know anything about mt Alvernia other than it exists.

I’m the same as EmmDasher - know KSHS by reputation only and that people pass other high schools to go there.

It has a big music program that gets a good rap.

I’ve heard very good things about Kedron. We were looking in that area a few months back and I’d printed out a school catchment map!

I've also heard great things about Kedron and know some families who pass multiple schools to go there.

Lots of kids as far as I heard come from out of catchment but you have to put your name down early when possible.
