Just looking for some advice on school years in Australia.
My son started school in the UK (this year) aged 4. We are considering returning to Australia next year in which case he would be in year 1 in the UK, but reception year in Australia. Does anyone know what happens when your child has already completed the reception year in the UK, would they have to repeat this year in Australia or would they allow him to go straight into Year 1, even though he would only be 5?
He is doing really well at the school he is in and I would hate for him to have to repeat the reception year again.
I know he wouldn't be eligible to start school in Adelaide until May 2012.
