The area is lovely and the school is very popular. It is the only State school in Queensland that has international accreditation - according to them. It is however very difficult to find a place to live in the catchment area - not impossible, but you may have to settle for less if you want your kids in the school because so many people want their kids to go there. I have also heard very good things about Mango Hill State School which is a very new school, but doing great and it's just a stone throw away from North Lakes. There's a Facebook Group called SA Ladies in North Lakes if you want to join them. You may get more responses from them.
