    Hi Harry and Elaine

    YEAHY!! How exciting!! When do you arrive? If you are in need of a coffee / chat / help when you arrive or before you arrive, please give me a shout. I live in Thornlands - this whole area is lovely.

    Sheldon College - well people seem to have strong views about Sheldon - it's either WONDERFUL or IT'S TERRIBLE - now when I say terrible I don't mean that it's a bad school - it is an excellent school, however it has a reputation of being very strict - VERY strict. It's the school that everyone loves to hate at sports carnivals etc. It depends what you are looking for from a school. If you are looking at Sheldon, then you might want to think about looking at Ormiston College, Redlands College and Faith Lutheran. They are all excellent schools as well. A little further away is Moreton Bay College, also excellent. There are school buses from this area though.

    Hope that helps a bit for now. Let me know if you need anything.

    I worked at Sheldon College only for a day or two..... not as a teacher. It looks a real smart place for a kid. Lots of facilities etc. I also heard it is a strict place.
