    I worked at Reddam House part-time

    Pros

    Students are mostly nice Staff are lovely

    Cons

    Facilities are dreadful. Classrooms look like classrooms from an impoverished school. Grounds are awful - no grass in sight. Music teaching rooms are the width of an upright piano, approx size (no joke) of a small walk in robe. Some rooms are too small to even fit a piano (!!). Scheduling is a nightmare. Rules and regs are like nothing I've ever seen. Hourly rate is low with parents paying a lot of money for the COMPULSORY...

No need to double up on everything with a sign in system, a timesheet and a weekly...

      Pros

      The location was great to go shopping at Westfield Bondi Junction.

      Cons

      I worked at Reddam House for more than 10 years

      Pros

      The students are kind and are very friendly. The math teachers are very nice and are passionate about teaching highschoolers.

      Cons

      The higher level teachers are beyond corrupt and have a vindictive agression towards students that they deem to be unprofitable

      Advice to Management

      All you care about is your retirement fund, one day treating children like currency will comeback and bite you.
