I work at St Vincents and it is expensive. It is however a fantastic school and a pleasure to work at. We have been at the same dilema since moving here 8 months ago. Our son is due to start high school in January. After weeks of problems we have got him enrolled at a systemic catholic school part of the marist schools. The cost for this is $4000 a year. Our daughter will be going to high school the following year. I have been offered a 25% discount at St Vincents but it is still costly. I have friends who live in the shire and the high school near Kirrawee they highly recommend. The catchment school around Maroubra where we live are not all that good.

If ever you want to come to St Vincents for a tour then let me know. It would be a pleaure to show you the school and the education we offer. After seeing what a wonderful school it is I am struggling with my decision on my daughter.

Kind Regards
Tammy

A large majority of the day students at St Vincents travel from around the Cronulla area/surrounding areas. The trains are direct from there and it isn't uncommon to travel some distances to get to school.
