Good school in theory, unless you have joint custody, or later disputed custody. I was the one who organised my son to go to the school, he was being bullied at his last school (by the children of the teachers there), my ex thought the best way to deal with the bullying was for my son to do Akido. It was only when he was brutally beaten at Erasmus Hawthorn that she agreed to move him (he was 7 at the time FYI.) I met both the principal and teacher at Aubrn, and kept in contact with them over his first year. That meant nothing when my ex-wife contested custody, as both his teacher and principal claimed they'd never met me, despite the fact that I'd met them with my ex-wife, and saw both regularly in the playground when I still had access enough to my son 1 week in two and I picked him up from school every day, and often chatted to both, vs my ex who hired a nanny. You've really got to worry about a school who intentionally lies when asked by officers of the court whether they've ever met you or not and answers no. Biggest regret of my life was pushing to transfer my son to Auburn. You can't make up bigger pathological liars than the people who run the place. Oh yeah, if G+ doesn't publish my name enough: Duncan Riley, father of Declan Riley.

The took me for every last cent in my divorce settlement, telling me that I should keep arguing with my ex even when we'd come to a half reasonable agreement. If you're in for a fight, they're the right people to have behind you, if you don't want to fight stay well away, they know how to get every single cent out of you.
