Perth homebuyers fight to live in prized school zones. As Domain launches its School Zone feature, agents say homehunters are seeking out the best catchments. Properties in Perth’s prized school zones are attracting a premium as parents fight to live in catchment areas that guarantee their child a place at a top government school. As children head back to school for the 2015 year, real estate agents report a rising and deliberate willingness among mum and dad buyers to take on higher mortgages to live in the right school zone. The trend is gaining such momentum that couples in their 20s, some who don’t even have children, are planning their buying around prized school zones, says Real Estate Institute of WA (REIWA) spokesman for sales consultants, Paul Dilanzo.

As Domain launched its School Zone feature – which shows the school catchments for each property listed on the website – Mr Dilanzo, of the Floreat-based Altitude Real Estate, says good school zones certainly add “that bit of magic” to keep prices up in a falling or flat market.

Source: News Limited AN address within the zone of one of Melbourne's top state secondary schools adds almost $165,000 to a home's price tag, research shows. The RMIT study found parents stretched their budgets by an average $164,426 to buy a home in the Balwyn High School zone, while homebuyers in the Camberwell High catchment area paid an average $160,000 extra.

Enrolments at these and other top state secondary schools are restricted to permanent residents within a set boundary. The report found parents had a "borderline obsession" to get their children into the best schools. Real estate agents and industry experts have long believed access to good state schools pushes up house prices but there has been little research until now to measure the impact in dollar terms.

Public vs private: the results are in. An Australian study tracked more than 4000 primary school aged children as part of a national study examining the benefits of private and public schooling. PICTURE: SUPPLIED IF YOU are a parent weighing up the benefits of an expensive private school education over the public school system, take note. It makes no difference. According to a new national study - the first of its kind in Australia - the birthweight, the amount of time a mother spends with her child and the educational levels of both parents contributes more to a child’s overall success at school rather than the institution. Researchers from the University of Queensland, Curtin University in WA and the University of Southern Queensland tracked the development of more than 4000 Australian primary children born since March 1999.

The study, titled Does school type affect cognitive and non-cognitive development in children? “Any differences we see in test results are not due to the school type. UNDERSTANDING OUR CHRISTIAN HERITAGE Volume 2. Dr. Allen Roberts is the founder and director of the Australian College of Christian Education, and for many years lectured trainee school teachers at Nepean CAE. It is not widely known that education in Australia was first established not by the government, but by the Christian Church. In this brief article, the history of Australia's Christian dayschool movement is traced from its colonial beginnings to the year 1880 when government education officially began. The article reveals that the Bible-based church-related school of early colonial times was remarkably successful in meeting the academic and spiritual/moral needs of the younger generation of that day. "I wish to advocate a system, not merely a system of education for the State, but a Scriptural education to train up not moralists but God's worshippers.

" Bishop Nixon, 1843 1 Australia's first church building also served as a schoolhouse. A similar church school tradition was established also in colonial America. The Rev. Lang. Abraham Kuyper: A Christian Worldview. McKendree R. Langley It has been a hundred years since Abraham Kuyper came to America to deliver his famous Stone Lectures on the subject of Calvinism at Princeton Theological Seminary. Those on campus at that time included Professors B. B. Warfield and Francis L. 1. In a follow-up commentary in The Standard on September 18, 1877, Kuyper remarked that the cosmic struggle between belief and unbelief was seen in the controversy between public and Christian education.

Those who have definitely broken with Christendom defend the religiously “neutral” public school with all their might. In the 1877 election campaign, Kuypers party won 14,500 votes and four seats (for a total of ten, including incumbents). Is Christian schooling really at loggerheads with the ideas of di.
