Comet Bay College vs Baldives Secondary College

    Recommended Posts

    We will be heading to perth in about 2 months and am wondering if anyone can give me some feedback on Comet Bay College vs Baldives Secondary College.

    We are a family of 4 living in Sydney 

    Hubby working SOR

    Me SOHM at the moment so would like to get to know local people

    Boy 14, currently in a gifted program at school and plays a good level of soccer & cricket (we have heard comet bay has a gifted program)

    Girl 10 into netball dance etc.

    We have also heard there is a lot more happening socially in Baldives for my son to go with his friends.  Is secret harbour too quiet?

    Any feedback good and bad would be great.

    Thanks

    This a difficult one, my son (12) went for a week and hated it, if he is into soccer look elsewhere as they don't do much, its all about AFL there, my Daughter (16) likes it there and has made some good friends so it horses for courses.

    Dont know anything about Baldivis College sorry.

    If he is at a high level of soccer then look up South Coast Baptist college (Waikiki), my son just got a 3 year full scholarship for the football programme and is thriving there.

     

    As for how much is going on I cant really comment as we haven't been here that long but we really like Secret Harbour.

     

    If you want to know anymore just shout out.

    quick update, my eldest daughter starts at South Coast Baptist next week, we have had enough of the lackadaisical approach there, we have a discount for a second child but I think it would be $6k/annum, she is looking forward to starting there.

     

    My son has gone from being a typical boy who cant be bothered to self imposed study and passing all exams and wants to do well, that's the up-to-date feedbaxk...

    Excellent.  We flew over last week and my son got into SCBC too.  He starts in the new year. Was very impressed with the school. Thanks for telling me to check it out

    SCBC was in the news earlier this week. Might be worth considering if you're okay with the bigoted employment policies of the school before you send your kids there.

    How would you go about asking a school that?.

    Ask them about their Christian ethos.
