Quotes

Resident Penny Wong said: "this is a huge dilemma. not sure how you could possibly work this. sometimes schools take children from slightly further afield to fill their classes then if you apply a 'no sibling' rule then how are parents supposed to do school runs in two different places. "i am also aware that people rent out their houses and then rent accommodation near a 'good' school for a year then move back out of that school's catchment area."
