Anyone can register to apply for a place at a cost of £400

They do and your children would not meet Eton's criteria.

And neither are you interested that to date 5 former teachers at this school have been convicted of sexual offences against children under their care. Convicted in a court and 4 of them sent to jail. Offences that include the 'sexual penetration' of a child.

Sorry Erolz but I actually do not believe Eton is more exclusive than any of the schools I just named above.

Not even close.

Not to say Eton isn't good because it certainly is extremely good and very uppity and very exclusive but I think it has been taken to a whole new level in Australia with the likes of geelong Grammar and such like.

If I had a choice between Eton and Geelong Grammar, then in my opinion I think Geelong Grammar is a at very least equally impressive.

And having the next King as an Old Scholar says it all.

I was astonished when I just researched things. I thought the schools in Adelaide were up there with the best but they don't compare to the 10 schools I listed. That's in a different league altogether. :shock: I had no idea...

Some of these schools are charging 35000 pounds for crying out loud and 70,000 pounds for boarding... :o

that's the same as what Oxford and Harvard could charge for crying out loud.

Ok nothing on this school on first page of google search with the name and the term 'sexual abuse' but that may well be because of the generic nature of the name.

This post really bemuses me. This thread is about a serious issue. You may have no interest in this issue, fine. Nothing to add to the discussion. No views to share. No arguments to make. All fine. But you you do apparently have enough interest in how I spelt Eton as Eaton. What the fuck is going on here ? Am I the 'wierd' one here thinking that the issue of the systematic abuse of children over decades is more important than how I spelt Eton ?

Oh yes, you can find articles about all these schools and who publishes these fake stories. The left wing SMH, Guardian and it's people like you who support these stories because you want to take down what you can't afford or what you perceive to be outside your own class.

But deep down, EVERYONE, wants to send their kids to all of those schools, including all the Guardian readers and Labor supporters.

I remember a few years ago when the military was targeted with accusations of sexual abuse, bastardization and other abuses. I served and I didn't see any evidence and what do they mean by bastardization. Yeh sure, I was yelled at, probably even physically assaulted when I first started, and I was certainly intimidated and I was even friggin bloody scared and stressed out and couldn't sleep some nights. It was the military for crying out loud. You know, they are training people to potentially fight in wars. They didn't want a bunch of snowflakes.

Even poor old Sister Francis would have been given a serving for hitting me several times on the knuckles of my left hand because I was writing with my left and that was not on back in the day. The fact is however, I do not regard that behaviour as abuse, and people need to get logical and harden up. Sister Francis was actually a very sweet old Lady. Stubborn as anything but she was only doing what she believed to be right and moral. She was certainly very devout and well intentioned, and I have no doubt about that.

We are very proud of our Private Schools in Australia. I am proud of the school my children attend at quite a significant expense to me but not close to the expense of Geelong Grammar. But it is highly regarded nonetheless and it is an institution like all the other schools I mentioned above and they are very safe and everything is very transparent and controlled.

We have the best teachers, the best facilities and we have smaller class sizes and these schools perform better than other schools by a significant margin.

I feel safer because these schools do not pollute the minds of our young people with utter stupidity and the rot that infests your Marxist mind.

Your politics are politics of envy. rather than strive to do better, you are striving to ruin things for all, including the poor. You want to destroy institutions which safeguard and protect traditions and conservatism. That is what the Eton's and Geelong Grammar Schools of this world do. There is respect within their halls, and there is total structure and discipline and that is what is required for all countries.

These schools are targeted because behind these schools are big huge Religions like the Catholic Tradition, Church of England, Lutheran Church, Presbyterians, Orthodox (there are 20 Orthodox Schools in Australia and we are very proud of them too), other Protestant denominations, Jewish Schools and all of them protect the children that attend their schools from all the utter stupidities that you and your like are diseased with.

You can have the last word after this post.

But know this, you are fighting a losing battle sunshine. The vast majority of people aspire to the Eton's and Geelong Grammars and these institutions and religions are now the front line against stupidity and the absurdities of all the nonsense crap Labor, Liberal Democrats and the Democrats in the USA are inflicting on the masses.

This is why, many people who attend these schools are also likely to vote Trump, or Boris Johnson, or BREXIT, and so on and so on. We DO NOT want the likes of Corbynov to come near us.

We don't want your politics of envy or your hatred, and yeh, I am happy to send my children to any of these schools just like my father sacrificed to send me to Catholic Schools I am striving to do even better for my kids and also make sure they have the right influences in their life and stay away from the likes of YOU and others like YOU, such as Lordo and so on.

What these schools provide families with is CHOICE. And a working class family CAN send their children to a catholic School that costs as little as $5000 and most families are in a position to afford that. And they get great value for money there as well. These schools are also of high standard, have great academic results that are above average, have great facilities and smaller class sizes. But most importantly of all, the children are again PROTECTED from your like and the likes of the absurd Corbynov and their totally STUPID policies and there nonsensical social engineering out of the Marxist Handbook. The children will learn to be DISCIPLINED in life. That is more important than achieving a certain result academically in my opinion because you don't have to be an Einstein to be a fine and upstanding person in life and in the community.

It is much better for any child to be exposed to the Catholic or Orthodox Church than to be exposed to the utter nonsense you espouse. Why, because these kids will grow with discipline, self control, respect for their bodies rather than screwing their brains out like animals, and they will go on as mature members of society who are family orientated and who are grounded right.

These articles are about the findings of Royal commissions. The judgements of courts and convictions. One is is even a public apology from the school itself on the schools own website. You call all this 'fake news'. Yes you will find such things more likely to reporting in papers like the Guardian. Where did Murdoch go to school ? I will give you a clue, it starts with a G and has long in the name. You are a case study in denial as far as I am concerned Paphitis.

If I had a pound for every time you had promised to 'send me to Coventry' in one for or another and then broke your promise I would have around £6 by now.

This is the difference between us. Sunshine. I do not choose which battles to fight and on which side based on which I think is most likely to win. I chose such based on what I think is right.

Murdoch put bread on my table for 11 years.

I have met him and his son Lachlan as well.

The Murdoch Family has a long history in Australia as his dad served alongside Bean at gallipoli and was indeed a champion for the Australian Diggers. He was even charged at one point for espionage because he released Australian Military Documents that were leaked from a certain Field Marshal John Monash of the Australian Imperial Forces who btw went on to lead the allies on The Western Front. Murdoch was the very first Julian Assange believe it or not. And the first paper he opened was the Geelong Gazette and Adelaide News.

Yes I have no doubt that Geelong Grammar churn out such high achievers. I am sure Murdoch isn't the only one. They also churn out NASA Astronauts and Australian Prime Ministers as well as future Monarchs.

And that is what we want.

Murdoch has the largest media enterprise on the planet and he is Australian.

You see I am not anti Murdoch. He employs more than 500,000 people you know. He employed my wife for many years. He is a contributor.

Over to you now for your evil last word.

Did you have any doubt or confusing what so ever as to what actual school we were talking about because of our misspelling of it's name ?


Myself personally no. But others who are not familiar with the school may have an interest in the thread, and research Eaton school, of which there are a few in the UK.
