    Schools in Mornington/Frankston

    How exciting...you will love it here! I work at Mount Martha Primary. It is another option for you. Have a look at the website. We are a big school set in beautiful grounds - semi rural I would say and near the beach. We have a beach program in our curriculum for years 3-6 where we utilise this beautiful resource right on our doorstep! We live in mount martha and hubby drives to the city. Would add about 10- 15mins on the journey from Mount Eliza I guess. When are you planning on coming over?

    Schools in Mornington/Frankston

    Hi there, as Petals says they are very far apart. I have friends with children at both schools and friends that work at Red Hill. Both are great schools. Red hill is more rural. It really will depend on where you are living. You don't want a school where all your children's friends live far away ( well, its a consideration anyway). Where are you? Cheers Sally

    The best path forward from a 457 visa

    Hi, we came over on a 457. It is, in my opinion, a very insecure visa. My partner lost his job and we were given 28 days to find a new sponsor or leave Australia. Luckily he got a new sponsor. This has happened to s 3 times now. His last employer eventually sponsored us for Permanent residency and after a year with them, we were able to apply for citizenship. It has been a rocky, an expensive , road. My advice is to get your partners work to sponsor you and put in for PR ASAP. So you have more security. Good luck

    Wedding Vent! Warning; contains MAJOR whinging.

    this is exactly why we 'eloped' and got married on the beach! No kids....no adults! bliss! Had a big party back in the UK later with all invited. I hope you have the best day. Just focus on whats important....and believe me its not colouring pencils! xxx

    Mornington Penisula

    Hi...just seen this thread. We have been in Mount Martha for 3 years. It is a beautiful place. The beaches are lovely and plenty of choice. Lots of POMs here and some do the commute to the city but it is a SLOW train....takes over an hour and stops at every stop. It costs just over $10 and is $3 on a Sunday. I think living in Mount Martha/Mornington means you have the best of both worlds....the beaches and cafes on your doorstep and easy access to the city when you want a night out. Frankston is ok for shopping. Personally I wouldn't want to live in Frankston North but Frankston South is fine and the schools are good. Mount Eliza is lovely too. Hope you settle in to wherever you choose. x
