No way!! Its full of Africans and Muslims. We want to keep our Aussie culture alive. The same reason they wear their traditional dress and eat their traditional food - because they don't want to leave their culture. So we also choose to keep our traditions and culture alive.

Wouldn’t sending your kids there then share that culture you want to preserve?

The Muslims wear school head scarves
Thank goodness it wasn’t like that in my days

What exactly is "Aussie culture".
I would have thought multiculturalism, acceptance, etc

^multiculturalism is the bastardisation of Australian society.
How has 'multiculturalism' worked out for civilised western society? It hasn't. Lord Baden Powell rued ever encouraging it. As we do also.

Who is this "we" business?
I work in a very culturally diverse work place and it's fantastic.
My husband is another nationality.
I live in an area where there is a large Filipino community.
I like the diversity.

Wow! Lady you need serious help. Please go and see a counsellor or therapist to address your xenophobia. Multiculturalism is a great thing and has positive benefits for everyone. One of the most important is that it builds empathy. Understanding that other people have different perspectives and ways of life helps you to be kind and understanding. Reacting with fear and hatred to any new ideas shows a small, closed mind. I feel sorry for you.

Look how multiculturalism has worked out for England. It's going to hell.
The only benefit it brings is different food. That's it.

Something that might help you is finding someone Muslim or African in your community and getting to know them. Often the fear and hatred behind racism is caused by never actually having spent any time with someone from the race you dislike. Because if you did, you'd realise they're people too. Individuals, with their own thoughts and feelings and families that they love. Not a generalised homogenous mass all with the same traits and beliefs, not scary and threatening and 'other'.

I hate Islam. That doesn't make me racist. It makes me someone who hates a particular fairytale.

That shows you don't know much about it. If you studied it in any depth you'd find it's a religion that preaches peace and tolerance. Some extremists and terrorists have misundersood and twisted its teachings into something false. They are individuals. They are individually to blame. The religion is not.

What's your excuse for not liking Africans, then?

If I could afford it , I figure all the teachers who suffered with me will be gone by now! Seriously, it was a beautiful, small school with great results but has grown to 'campus' size.

Some children spend only a short time at a school because their parents change jobs on a regular basis and obviously the move is unavoidable. If you do have a choice about moving them, however, then you should consider the decision carefully.

ANSWER

No as I lived in a poor area and the schools were very rough. My old high school has made the news a lot for stabbings and drugs. My old primary school has some of the worst results in my state and tends to accept all the kids that were kicked out of other schools for bad behaviour.

Heaps of my old school friends have been posting photos in the last 2 years and all their kids go to that primary now.
