My daughter is going to school next year. So, I went for the guided school tour a few days back. Even though the schools in Australia open by the end of January to early February, the enrolment process starts by mid-May. The school tour is the first step of this process. It’s an opportunity for the parents and the kids to see the school facilities themselves and meet the staff. So far I attended two school tours (both were public schools) and came out pretty impressed each time.
When I first visited the school, the one thing that caught my eye was the massiveness of the school campus.
It had a basketball court, an oval (called ground back in India) with goal posts and cricket pitch, different playgrounds for Prep and Senior students. It boasted a full-fledged Performing Arts theatre with the sitting capacity for 200+ people.
