Non-religious private schools in Canberra?

By Listers_Cat - 27 November 2009 46

Howdy folks,

Can anyone tell me if there are non-religious private schools anywhere in Canberra? I’m a bit worried about poor resourcing in Canberra public schools, but don’t want to send my child to a school that has a religious bent.

What’s Your opinion?

Red Hill was excellent for our kids. Absolutely no religion at all, and lots of different ethnic groups. The IB is great for inquirey based learning and if you more around the world like we do, they tend to fit into an international school better.

I went to girls grammar and had a horrible time being bullied and when I told the teacher they said that it was my fault. I tried to get one teacher fired because she was bullying me but they didn’t get rid of her. I went to Brindabella Christian College, its a great school but they are a bit OTT with the God and religion. Orana doesn’t except people with learning difficulties- I tried to get in there but because I have ADD they would accept me, also they have weird rules like you can’t read until you have lost your first tooth. Montessori is great I went to the public preeschool which is in Yarrulumla, they take 3 year olds and it goes up to when they are 6. Just thought I’d say my bit

Some people think it is religious education, but of the new age, nutty, ‘I just made it up myself’ kind…

As opposed to…?

And the obvious plus for private schools – they’re harder for the Minister to close.

As an interesting converse to this story, are there any religious public schools around?

and if i am not wrong, excellence in a child’s results is attributed to a great extent to be driven by the engagement of the parent, not solely the education provided by the schools…

It’s worth logging in to state my agreement with that point.
