Choice avail­able

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

The prin­ci­pals of two Hor­sham pri­mary schools have re­as­sured par­ents that they have a choice when con­sid­er­ing schools for their chil­dren in the Wim­mera cen­tre.

Chris Wal­ter from Hor­sham Pri­mary School and Andrew Parry, Hor­sham West-haven Pri­mary School, would also like to re­as­sure par­ents that aca­demic suc­cess is their core busi­ness and great re­sults is what their schools are all about. Both are par­tic­u­larly proud of the re­sults which are ev­i­dent on the Myschool web­site.

“We en­cour­age all par­ents to consider and tour through their neigh­bour­hood school when choos­ing where to send their chil­dren but if that school is still not for them par­ents do have other op­tions. There is a strong mis­con­cep­tion that the des­ig­nated neigh­bour­hood school – the school that is near­est the stu­dent’s per­ma­nent res­i­dence is the only choice when it comes to choos­ing a school” Mr Wal­ter said.

How­ever this was not the case and Mr Parry added. “If you do not want your child to at­tend your neigh­bour­hood school you do not have to, but we ask that you visit and go for a tour of that school first.

“It’s important to find a school that is right for you and your chil­dren and with the many fan­tas­tic op­tions avail­able you will be able to find one that suits your fam­ily.”

Both agreed that tour­ing schools and get­ting a feel for each of them was important when choos­ing a school
