I assume it will be down to the extra additional exposure you might get from Habs (or independent schools in general) to decide if that's worth it.
My son got good marks to get into QE, however we are open to independent schools as well, especially Habs boys
Though fees is not a big problem I am trying to analyse if it's worth the money
What sort of added benefits or facilities does Habs offer that QE doesn't?
He is more academic and not too much into sports, so this perk of Habs doesn't add much value in our case
