Hi, we are relocating to Perth from Adelaide in January and will be staying in a short-let accommodation until we find long term accommodation, are there lots of families looking at each house as they do here in Adelaide, we are looking at Illuka, Heathridge, Connolly, all the catchment areas of Ocean Reef. Thanks any advice would be helpful as we dont really want to stay in a holiday home for too long as it will work out really expensive.

Just be careful with parts of Connolly and Heathridge. Not all of these suburbs are in catchment for Ocean Reef, some are in catchment for Belridge which IMO is not a good school.

Hi Lyn Both my kids go to Ocean Reef High and although at 1st I thought it was more like a holiday camp than a school( we were so used to the english system being so strict),they are both doing well , like most schools if yr children want to learn they will , they have great outdoor ed program and fully encourage team daughter is very artistic and they seem to be doing well in that field too.We live in Ocean reef but did live in heathridge , the school seems to be fairly flexible on the catchment area Jayne x
