Hi, I'm moving to Brisbane from Surrey in the UK, with husband and two girls (3 and 7) in September. My eldest daughter has finished infant school and was about to start Junior School in September, hence we decided to move before she started. I'm having a real problem trying to find information about schools which is anything more than their websites (ie advertising!).
We have been really spoilt with the quality of the state schools in Farnham, and I want to find something in Brisbane which will be equally as good, but so far the only ones which seem to match up are all private schools! Can anyone suggest some state schools which offer not only good academic teaching but also a wide variety of arts (eg music, language, drama) and sports activities (swimming, gymnastics, dance), and a 'pastoral' attitude towards the children. My daughter really enjoys school and I am worried about her going somewhere which she will not like!
