Catholic secondary school in Gungahlin?

By nanzan - 27 May 2009 75

Last night I attended an information night re the new Mother Teresa Catholic Primary School in Harrison.

It was mentioned that a site has also been reserved for a Catholic secondary school in Gungahlin, and I wondered if anyone knows where it actually is? Apparently, it was suggested, the site may not actually be used for a school and that another, more appropriate, site is currently being sought.

What’s Your opinion?

I thought everyone went to Catholic schools.

Staffing the proposed Catholic school at Gungahlin should be no problem- there are probably a number of priests in Ireland that are ready and willing to migrate.

Same here.

If anything catholic schools made me question it all, rather than follow like a sheep. And a such turned me off religion.

So brainwashing, nope…

Schooled all through the Catholic system. Hardly call myself or any of my family brainwashed. Could call us sensible enough not to make a remark as dumb as the above, but not brainwashed.

Don’t send your kids….more room for mine

Agree with VG here. I went to catholic schools from kindy through 12. I don’t go to church and, in fact have massive issues with the catholic church as an organisation/business. So if brainwashing is actually intended to turn you off the religion it is supposed to indoctrinate you in(?) then colour me brainwashed – and so incidentally are most of my mates who also went to catholic schools but who also don’t go to church.

Do I send my kids to a catholic school? Well yes, I do but only because I believe through my own experience that private schools have other benefits besides religion.

One day we shall witness a miracle, where vg makes his/her point without having to abuse another contributor while making it.

More children being bent over by the clergy, you meant.

More children being raised with strong direction as to right and wrong, rather than ‘everything is fine’. What a tragedy… not.

Orana School and Canberra Montessori School are both non religious I believe or at least non denominational

Related (but kind of a derail): are there any private schools in Canberra that aren’t religious?

Surely its not adjacent to a major road intersection. Oh wait….that kind of conspiracy only happens in Sydney suburbs!
