    NSW School Fees whilst on visa

    Hi yeah that’s what I thought and hope! That’s great thank you for your reply. j
  2. Hi All, My husband and I and our 12 year old son are heading to Singleton, NSW in May this year on a visa for work in Muswellbrook. Just wondering if anyone would know about fees for attending school. Whilst on a visa we need to pay these but as our son will be starting school probably around June, half way through school term we are wondering if the full amount of $5,500 is due or would it be less for the remaining time of school year? Thanks jay

    Moving to Muswellbrook, NSW

    Hi Bulya, Ok, will do. Thank you. Hi FJM, Yes we are indeed ping pongs lol - We lived in a place called Roma in Queensland in 2013. We stayed 18 months. Roma was very outback and a good 7 hour drive to the beach. Our kids at the time were 6 & 13 and they found it pretty difficult to settle. We came back to the UK for a wedding in between and that kind of broke us and we thought we were missing something from back home so we decided to come home. We quickly found out that we weren't! - We had a house to sell in the UK and it has taken us this long really to get the opportunity to head back. My husband has been offered a job in Muswellbrook and we are hoping to be back in Australia by May this year. We are planning to start in Singleton and see where we end up. We do plan to stay this time! You planning to head back then? Which part of Sydney? Good luck with everything.

    Restricted Driver

    No just when you pass your test you have to have an R plate showing which means restricted to 45mph. This stays on for a year.

    Restricted Driver

    Hi I am currently in the UK and learning to drive and hoping to pass before we head to NSW in May. If I am successful in passing my test I would be a restricted driver for a year here in the UK -how will that work when we arrive would I still be classed as a restricted driver and will I need to be on red “P” or Green “P” or need both or what happens? Thank you janine

    Moving to Muswellbrook, NSW

    Moving to Muswellbrook, NSW

    Hi Marisa, Thank you for replying. Yeah no where is perfect really! and the fact that it has lots of wineries is a bonus lol. Yes, I think that we will maybe look at living in Singleton, have heard some good reports about there, housing and schools etc. I think we are going to wait until we are there to have a look around first and then hopefully decide. Do you know if it is a long process with the real estates to apply to rent a house? We would be in a motel for probably a week or so and in between then we would like to get moved in to a rental. I will have a look on the homely.com website, thank you for this and hopefully get some more information. Thanks again Janine

    Moving to Muswellbrook, NSW

    Hi all, My husband and I and our 11 year old son will hopefully be moving to Muswellbrook, NSW around May or so, just awaiting Visa etc. we are coming from Northern Ireland, United Kingdom and we are just wondering if anyone could give us some insight what its like to live there ie. best areas to live, housing, things to do, high schools, shopping, socialising etc. My husband's job will be in Muswellbrook, we may also look to maybe live in surrounding areas depending on travel for work/schools etc. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Janine

    Hi does anyone know if it’s ok to pack belongings in plastic container boxes rather than cardboard boxes to ship to Sydney? We are planning to use a cube to ship our belongings. thanks

    Move cube

    Can dirt bikes and tool boxes, flat pack beds, mattresses fit into move cubes? May need a few cubes but if they able to take what we need it would be great option for shipping our belongings.
