As a student at Fintona, I can definitely say that there's no other school I'd rather attend. I have been attending the school for almost 9 years and the quality of care and teaching is excellent. I have recently been quite unwell and have really been struggling with my health this year. The school have been incredibly supportive and understanding, they have made every adjustment possible to ensure that my time at school is easier for me. I am amazed at the high standard of the pastoral care. The teaching is excellent, it really feels like they care about you and want to help you in your subjects. They explain everything clearly and thoroughly and only want you to do your best, which of course varies for each student. I love Fintona I've already made so many memories which I cherish and I can't wait for all the years to come. If you're looking for a school with flash facilities this is not the place for you, however, if you're looking for a quality education and an environment that is accepting, open minded and naturing then I'll see you at Fintona.

My daughter started in K3 kindy and she seems to enjoyed it. Teachers are great, but I'm really not 100% satisfied with curriculum from prep to year 2. We noticed my daughter was doing the same thing for the last 3 years. School is small which leads to good and bad. Good part is the teacher will be able to identify and care for each individual child. Bad thing is girls are hanging around with same group of people each day which leads to disagreement. We have seen bully not only from the girls, parents were involved too. Majority of families are rich and parents are forming little favourite groups!! Fintona is a good school, but I really can't stand those up to themselves parents. Oh well, I guess it happens in every private school!

Overall, Fintona is a great school with good education, but the fact that it's TOO small and other things make it okay. Don't get me wrong, my daughter loves this school, no matter how big or how small. Maybe in the younger years, the students should have been taught good behaviours but now in the middle years and senior years, the girls are so mature. So, I rate this school GOOD over certain aspects.
Well, most of these things come from my daughter.
