  1. Hi, we are selling our 2001 Holden Commodore VX sedan. Blue 247000km rego until 12/09/13. automatic air con car runs great and no problems with it. we have had a new radiator and radiator tap fitted (receipts can be seen) We are asking $3800 as we would like a quick sale as we have seen a 4x4 that we need to carry our sons motocross bikes.

    Car hire at Brisbane airport without a credit card?

    Hi I am not sure if they still do but when we came in November 2010 we used East Coast car rentals. They accepted our debit card. x
  3. Hi we from Oldham, hubby staying with our mates in Parkwood and they are from Buxton. Me and boys coming over in January and we have just secured a house on Genesis Estate at Coomera. Cant wait Jill x
  4. Thanks everyone. the school we wish to send him made a mistake in saying year 7. He will start year 6 in January 2013. Queensland education emailed me back to say he can go in year 7 but would depend on his academic ability etc... His dob puts him year 6 thank goodness. x
  5. Thanks guys, I think I will ring them like you said. I have also emailed Qld education for confirmation. xxx
  6. Hello I hope someone can help. My son is turning 11 on Saturday, his date of birth is 01/12/01. He is currently in year 6 in the UK. I have enquired to a school on the Gold Coast about enrolment and they have replied saying he will have to start year 7 in January 2013???? This would mean he will never complete year 6. I am really confused because when we lived on the Sunshine Coast, he was enrolled in year 4 in January 2011. I really wanted him to go to this school and don't know how to proceed. Please can anyone advice what year he should be in. Thanks Jill xxx

    Hi, I am a little (well lot) confused with what year my son will be in when we return in January 2013. He is 11 on Saturday and his date of birth is 01/12/01. He is currently in year 6 in UK. I have had a reply from a school on the Gold Coast to say he has to start Year 7 in January 2013??? This means he will have never completed year 6. When we lived on Sunshine Coast, he was in year 4 in January 2011. Please can someone advise as I am very worried that he will miss out and his education will suffer. Thanks Jill xxx
