My husband and I have previously lived in Canberra and will return in the next year or so with our son. We used to live in the Inner North and that is the area we hope to return to.
Our primary consideration when choosing a suburb to buy into is the local public primary school. We’d like to live in a suburb with a school so I am thinking either Lyneham or Ainslie if we can afford it (I am well aware prices have gone a bit crazy in Canberra).
I have checked the myschool website but we don’t trust NAPLAN results alone.
We don’t have any family or friends with school aged children in Canberra so I’m not aware of primary school reputations. Does anyone have any comments on Lyneham Primary School, Ainslie or North Ainslie? Turner and Campbell are out of the question in terms of affordability – I have heard you have to live in the suburb of the school to guarantee entry.
Am I missing any other great public primary schools in Canberra?
