Default Albany Primary and Junior High Schools

Hi,
We're thinking of moving to Albany and wondering if any of you has any first hand experience with either of these schools. We have two daughters aged 10 and 8.
They are both decile 10, but this is an indicator only; we would appreciate your opinion if you have kids in these schools. Our daughters currently attend Remuera Primary and wonder how the schools compare.

I teach at Pinehurst School, home to Miss Plays-much-golf. Small, friendly, very strong co-curricular. I would call it a soft school. The Y10 boys would not last 5 minutes at a South Auckland rough house.
It take pupils through the Cambridge International Exams, so they end up doing A-levels. Ideal if you think they may go back to the UK.

Hello and welcome to B.E., sorry cant say I can be of any practical help, except you can check out the NCEA report on the school

Which on the face of it seems pretty good.
