Default Advise on Public Primary Schools - Kenthurst, Dural, Glenhaven, Samuel Gilbert

Hi there,

My daughter starts Kindergarten next year and we are looking at primary schools for her. We have been in Australia for 2 years now.

Any advice on the following schools please:

Kenthurst Public School

Thanks very much

I have a friend who sends her daughter to Glenhaven PS, she has no problems with the school. In addition, Samuel Gilbert has a good reputation too. Don't know anything about the other schools. Hope this helps.

Thanks very much.

I was told about www.bettereducation.com.au - to read about the primary schools Naplan results? I compared a few schools and Kenthurst PS for instance was at the bottom...didn't have as many high results as Dural PS. Does anyone know why? Is it because Kenthurst is half the size?

All so confusing....

Dural Public have an opportunity class for Year 5 and 6 children. This means that they take the cream from a variety of local schools after completion of a placement test. A number of local primary schools are beginning to offer their own gifted & talented classes to try to stop the children moving schools.
