    GCSE schools and college age 16

    Being on a 457 visa wasn't a problem my son was offered an apprentiship in year 11 when he started school that was in Qld. I think they are getting rid of the OP thing anyway and if the kids get a low score they can do a year at TAFE to get into uni so same as Ali said don't worry too much know matter what you decide and whenever you come to oz your child will be able to do a course to get into uni
  3. Together 20 married 18, as my better half says would of got less for murder lol, off to work have a good day or night everyone x x

    There is TAFE but if your on 457 it's international fees, you don't pay for public schools in qld, my son was in his final year in uk and we come over jan he started year 11 here, they do year 11 and 12 for their op which gives them a score to go to uni etc they can also do an apprentiship through school one day a week starting year 11 all free, my eldest started school mid march, he graduated in November from public school no problem with a high op, good luck x

    Teenagers not wanting to leave the UK

    I'm assuming your male as is something my hubby would say! My eldest is 17 at 6 foot 2 hes still my baby, 16 year olds may be aloud by law to do things but their not mature enough in my opinon although i remember thinking i knew it all at 16 haha

    Teenagers not wanting to leave the UK

    I really feel for you its hard with teenagers but at 16 they are still children and dont know whats best for them so as parents it our job to make that decision for them, whether it turns out to be right is part of the learning process as unfortunately children dont come with a manual on how to raise them, which is such a pity! Good luck with your plans im sure she will settle and make friends and when she becomes an adult it out of your hands and the time comes for letting go

    couldnt agree more Highfields is fab we love it here and are going to build here this year, there are 2 high schools being built this year too its growing very fast, wish they'd sort out the train though that would be faster to get to brissie as to drive it a 1 hour 50 mins! The south of toowoomba is growing too Kearney springs the houses are flying up!

    Is your child gifted?

    my daughter started here in 1st grade as she should have done for her age after 2 months they asked if they could give her an iq test which they did and they have bumped her up a year but in the class that accommodates advanced kids, her new school friends are almost 2 years older than her! Impressed with the schools here, not sure it would have happened in the uk, although my eldest 2 were classed as gifted and talented' I think they only moved her as she was becoming a teacher aid instead of pupil!!!
