Primary schools in Balwyn

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

We have just found a suitable rental propert in North Balwyn and now need to find a good school for our 4 year old daughter.

 

Does anyone know of any good schools both public and private?

 

We would appreciate any advice.

 

Thanks,

 

Amanda

St Bede is a good school, Greythorn, Belle Vue, I don't think you will go wrong with any of them


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Balwyn is in the City of Boroondarra so if you look at the web site http://www.boroondara.vic.gov.au/ should give you information.

 

Children start school at 5 and the the cut off date for turning five in the year they start is end of April. A lot of people these days are keeping them back and letting them start a year later. Prior to primary the children go to kindergarten.

 

Balwyn is a popular area as its close to most of the good private schools.

Hi,

 

I'm not far from Balwyn North. The Balwyn North primary school has a good reputation in the area.

 

A couple of the private ones that I have heard good things about are Fintona (http://www.fintona.vic.edu.au/) and Strathcoma (http://www.strathcona.vic.edu.au/). Strathcona has a preschool which a mum from our preschool sends her daughter to a few days a week.

 

One of my other friends sent her eldest to the preschool in North Balwyn and has good things to say about it.

 

The myschool.edu.au website is a good way to compare the local schools.
