    The State primary schools in Chch are zoned. Some will take you if you live out of zone, but only if they have room.

    If you want to pay, Medbury is meant to have a good reputation. Having said that, my boys played Medbury teams four or five times in junior cricket this year. The Medbury boys really looked the part, matching shirts and trousers etc. Unfortunately, the parents were gobby, they kids messed about and they all moaned like hell when their players were caught or bowled.

    Call me fussy, but I'd expect a bit more than that for $10K a year......

    Hi Tim, I'm in Auckland now but was in Chch. Our kids went to Elmwood Normal School, which is mixed gender, but I reckon would be up there with the best in NZ. Medbury has a reputation alright- and so do the parents. I'd try for Elmwood, but almost any school in a good area should be OK. Note the words "good area"! Check out the ERO reports.
