My family and I are moving to Canberra and would like to find out peoples opinions about Marist and St Edmunds. My son loves his sports but requires a bit more assistance academically. Ideally we would like a school that is big on their sports but also encourages academic excellence as well. In my previous experiences schools have only been interested in one or the other. I have heard of schools who offer great sporting opportunities but require a certain standard of academic results in order to participate in their sporting teams. I would appreciate peoples opinions and advice on their experiences with both Marist and St Edmunds.
