  1. Hi all PomsInOz, We are moving fairly soon to the Bunbury area and are looking at schools in the area. Kids are 4, 6 and 9 and to be honest I don't even know where to start. Help! Happy to fee-pay if that means better education. My 9 year old is introvert and likes his maths, my 6 year old is pretty good at reading and writing, would like to be an 'author' and write bout science, that tells you enough, and my 4 year old hasn't gone to school yet but loves scribbeling and singing and drawing.... Any good advice is welcome. AlandEs
  2. Hi guys- hoping people in Oz have woken up by now! :rolleyes: Just looking for people's opinions on schools in the shire-- any personal experiences? I need ( as we all do) a good primary for my kids-- somewhere they will feel at home(they are coming from the Uk) , where they will feel welcomed and happy, and a good place for academic excellence. An after school club will be great if present. Not too bothered about sports as my son couldn't care less. Public or Catholic schools are both ok-- just that it should be a good school. I would be grateful for people's opinion, and please pass on any hearsay as well:biggrin:!
  3. Hi all, Can anyone recommend a good migration agent that doesn’t cost the earth? I have contacted a few but I’m getting the total costs back as around £7000 :-/....... I am looking at going for a 175 visa. Any replies would be gratefully received, Mark
  4. Went to my local Homebase today to buy a few extra nice bits to put on the tree for our last UK crimbo and they have stacks of 6 hole bauble boxes, presumably what they are shipped to them in. They are very strong and free to take, but I guess it might be nice to buy something:wink: We bought enough for 3 boxes but loaded the kids up with another 12 ready to pack up all our baubles for the big move next year. Go get some while they last :wink:
  5. PM me if you want. Thanks!

    Rent Good or Bad??

    Hi All, We've been quoted $103pn for a 2 bed self-contained unit in central South Perth. We're considering booking this as our arrival accommodation in April 2012 and was wondering if anyone can offer advice on whether this price is good? It seems the cheapest we can find for the type of accomodation we're looking for but I can't be sure. Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks, Robyn

    No news is good news

    Evening all, Right thats it for me no more news, i tuned into the 6 oclock news this evening and after 5 minutes of it was ready to top myself :shocked:, i have never heard or seen so much doom and gloom and i for one have had enough so i am going to do my level best to ignore the news on the radio and the tv and buy a newspaper that does not print proper news, so in other words i will carry on buying the one i nearly always do :laugh:, no but seriously the news can do one :mad:

    How good is Oz TV

    I've read loads of threads of people complaing how bad Oz tv is. How true is this, Do you get the usuall imported programmes from US & UK?
  9. Afternoon, I was flicking through a couple of books about travellers experiences in Australia that my dad had kindly dropped round to me and Bill Bryson's Down Under is one of them, in this book Australia is described like this, " the people are cheerful, extrovert, quick witted and unfailingly obliging, their cities are safe and clean and nearly always built on water, the food is excellent, the beer is cold and the sun nearly always shines " After just spending a month there i can honestly say that that description is spot on :yes: Anyway just thought i would share that with you :cute:

    Cults, Good Bad or Ugly.

    This sort of thing has always fascinated me, many reasons, but mostly because of the way peoples minds tick.:goofy::idea::yes: Watched several docos on the The Jonestown Massacre, Waco and a few others and what really strikes me is that so called 'normal' people, people that are perfectly sane and rational do things completely out of context. The one thing that made me bring up this thread is what a former member of a 'cult' said. She said what is often forgotten is the fact that the people who are in a cult, commit suicide, show absolute allegiance to a 'leader' were once perfectly normal everyday people who went about their daily lives as if nothing out of the ordinary, BUT. The minute the word 'cult' is used these people become (in some peoples minds) nothing but freaks, and their lives dismissed as if by the by. I guess what I am trying to say is that even though we find the behavior of cult leaders and followers strange their is often a very human story behind the facard of so called madness and blind faith. Fortunately many 'got out' of the cult before something terrible happened, but what in your opinion drives someone toward these cults, is it religion, belief, intolerance of the 'normal' world, disenfranchised. I know I want to set up PIO 2 in the outback, but i promise it won't become a cult, well maybe not.:cool::no: Cheers Tony.

  12. The Australians deservedly won the Four Nations World Cup, beating the Poms 32 to 8 at Elland Road.:jiggy::jiggy: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2063719/Australia-beat-England-win-Four-Nations.html Cheers, Bobj.
  13. I say 'new' because it's been open for a while but I'd never really been in there until today. I think they are still doing work anyway as I saw a few 'tradies' sitting out on the mall eating their lunch. The dining area was absolutely PACKED at lunchtime with both office workers and shoppers. David Jones on Castlereagh is linked up to it as is Myer between Pitt and George. David Jones has its nativity scenes up and running in a line of shop windows. It seems a little incongruous seeing all the 'snow' but the kids love it. I think I know the city well but each time I go there I see new buildings, pubs, cafes, shops and I feel like a tourist.

    Good Grocery Shopping for family?

    We are finally arriving in Canberra this week and will be staying in Short term acccomodation in Civic. We are a "foodie" family and I want to know where the best and cheapest places are to shop for fressh food and meat etc. I dont mind a "trek" anywhere - which are good markets - and are supermarkets vvvv expensive. we tend to shop in Tescos here in Blighty and I go to a local markst for fresh veg and fruit - but NOT the overpriced farmers markets here in England - Im talking about a proper market. I then go to to ethnic stores for my specialist spices/herbs/condiments etc. We dont really shop in "farmers" market here in the UK or dlis are they are all too expensive but we eat well. Any advice on this would be so appreciated. The hardest thing for me about shipping all our stuff was saying goodbye to all the spices and cooking things I have built up and collected over a number of years. All went to a good home but I want to start rebuilding the collection without breaking the bank. Are the markets in Canberra - like the overpriced farmers markets here? If anyone could advise that woud be great. We arrive on Tuesday!! leave tomorrow.. Places to avoid would be great to hear about too and is Costco worth joining. Whst kind of things can you buy in bulk. We do buy some things in bulk - rice, pasta, flour for breadmaking etc... but not sure what the costso there sells. We have a massive chest freezer being shipped so we stock up on bargain meats here in the Uk - where is good for this - and fish??? Angela xx

    Is this a good price for one way?

    Hi im having a bit of a dliemna. I was going to book a flexi return ticket but I have since found out that they are only valid for 12 months which is not too great. So I have now looked into one ways and the cheapest i can find is £600.96. Is this a good price or has anyone flown for less when flying one way. It is October next year and I have asked the opinion of travel agents and they have said because its the australian summer that is probably the best i can get. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks
