    High Schools near Coogee.......any advice welcome....

    Thanks bob1, my son does excell in maths, but he really would prefer to go to a mixed school, and he isn't that sporty, so maybe seton would be his best bet. It's so hard , not sure I like the sound of all boys school neither, or maybe it's just cos there's not many single sex schools in uk, so not used to them.. How far is seton from Coogee do you know....

    Driving licence

    Hi, my son recently got a speeding ticket and can either pay the £60 fine and get 3 points or pay £70 and do a course and get no points however there may not be time to do the course as we leave in a little over a week. Does having the 3 points effect his licence over in Australia or not? If not he'll just pay the £60 fine and get the points. Can you help? Thanks!
