Kids Education

Hi,

I would be migrating to OZ in Jan 2010. I have a 6 yr old kid.

1) What is the major difference between a public school and a private school, other than the fees.
2) How are the fees like in private schools?
3) Any suggestion for good public primary schools in inner-west sydney.

Many Thanks,

The majority of Australians schooled here have gone through the public school system and sure private schools might promise better teachers and facilities and the latter may be true to some extent and teachers are all human.

You could find that there will be waiting lists for privates schools, it being known that some parents register their children while mothers are still carrying, perhaps more a hangover of parents having gone to private schools.
I went to public schools my whole life as did my two daughters who have successful professional careers.

Private school fees are probably heading towards the $10,000/y mark, perhaps more for some private secondary schools.

For a public school where you reside, it's just a case of fronting up to the closest and enrolling your child and you could visit the local school to do that before the school year commences about end of January.

Hi Santosh,

I am in the process of immigrating to OZ (from UK). Hope you have immigrated by now. I have 13 year old and 8 year old. Is there a huge difference between private education and state education. Here in UK apart from few locations there is not much difference between them. Is there a big difference there in OZ

Yes. State funded public education is free for all PRs and Private education is expensive ( 12K to 20 K / year). The public schools are good here.

Hi Santosh,
Thanks for the reply. I know it depends on the city but generally
when you say 'public schools are good' you mean private schools?

Hi Santhosh,

I am a PR holder and planning to bring my family (my wife and 5 years old son) during February. I found the academic of schools here starts in January, that means is it difficult to admit my son in the school for 2014 year?

Regards,
Raj
