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
