Have been reading a lot on PIO since joining, but never really got the courage to make a post!
We have just got the 457 Visa through (hurray). I'll be coming over to sort accomodation in May and I hope to move my troop to Melbourne in June. I'll be working in the Cheltenham area, but housing being expensive means we may have to move further away... any ideas for good areas within reasonable distance and with good schools?
Kids are 16/9 and 5. The priority is to find a good affordable (state) school for the oldest as he's probably looking to go to uni after. But of course I'd like to find good schools for all of them....
Is anyone able to give advice from 1st hand experience?
Will we be expected to pay for all the schools on this visa?
Should I start contacting the schools now or is it easier to be in situ?
Thanks to anyone with a bit of advice
