Parent's Review of Our Lady Star of the Sea in Sydney,

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

Our Lady Star of the Sea

In what town or city is this school located?

Sydney

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

Multi-Cultural

What grade levels are represented at this school?

K-Year 6

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Car.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

Excellent teachers! Our daughter had a bad experience at a school in Queensland and this Sydney school has turned her around. Daily assemblies highlight the childrens birthdays, sporting achievements, and available activities.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

She has been made to fully feel part of the school community, although there are no specific programmes for settlement. Her strengths have been identified and the teachers have focused on them.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

Parents are encouraged to help in daily activities, including helping in classroom lessons.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

It's a 'locals' school, although there are many cultures present with Sydney being what it is. The children are definitely put first in every sense and it's refreshing to see. No hesitation in recommending the school at all.
