    high schools Gold Coast

    Hi ,Could anyone suggest any good High Schools? We have been looking at the Pacific Pines and Helensvale areas but are open to suggestion as have not fully decided on the suburb yet. Its sooooo hard! We are aiming for the Gold Coast and we are hoping to be there approx December. We have three children but it is the two eldest (girls) that I am more concerned about as Gemma is sixteen and has recently left school here and Elise is coming up to thirteen. Obviously due to their ages Im sure it will be difficult for them at first and I would like to make the transition as easy as possible for them. They are both okay with the move but I dont want to put them in a school that does not welcome us Poms ! Also Im sure its been asked many times before but what school year would they go into if they start the year this coming jan/feb? So many thanks for any info anyone may throw my way!! Jane

    Which High School?

    My husbands fancying moving to Butler WA. What high school would my children go to if we were to move there? I think it"s a bit far out......any advice from anyone living there greatly appreciated. Cheers Tracey
  9. Hi All, I was just wondering about something I noticed on Be Update. We applied on 4th January 2009 for a 175 visa online. We are on the CSL, so should hope to be processed soon. I noticed that there are other 175 applicants being processed before us, but they mainly seem to come from hign risk countries. Are there different rules for high and low risk? Also, the latest ASPC update is saying that CSL applications will be processed when the state and employer sponsored applications have been exhausted. Does this means no 175s will be processed, as I imagine new state and employer ones are being submitted all the time? It used to say CSLs would be processed in date order, but it doesn't anymore. Does anyone know what is going on? Sorry to go on, but Im getting quite frustrated....

    High schools around Altona Meadows

    Hi, Please could any one provide any information about high schools around Altona Meadows. We did a reccie in April and concentrated on areas around Geeling, Grovedale, Highton and Belmont. We loved these areas, visited schools and found 2 high schools and 2 primary schools which were fantastic. The day after we got home we recieved an offer on our house (been on market for 1yr) and completion looks set for end of June. Now here is the problem......... I am an oncology nurse and want to arrive with a job lined up, Geelong Hospital won't consider me until I am resident. This means taking pot luck that a post becomes available fairly quickly which is not something that I wish to do. Therefore quick rethink and lots of sleepless nights. I can got a job at Peter Mac Cancer centre in CBD, job is fab but too far to commute from Geelong so now consdering living in Altona Meadows. It is really hard trying to find info about high schools in this area. The only school I can find is Bayside College, it looks like it has 3 different campuses. What campus is best? What is the school like does anyone have children there or know someone that does? I have searched previous posts on here, Werribee secondary has been mentioned for Altona but I thought it is quite a drive from Altona Meadows. Does anyone know if this schools is a feasible option for us? We also need a primary school, have found lots of websites can anyone recommend one? Finally to all who have made the move - does anyone actually arrive with sanity intact!!! There is so much to arrange I am starting to wonder if we are mad making this move!! Thanks Vanessa

    Canberra High Schools

    Hi everybody. We are hoping to move to Canberra by the end of 2009, and will hopefully be starting our 12 year-old son in High School in 2010. We have researched the areas and my OH and I are agreed that we would be best suited to living outside the city - down south in Tuggeranong. We don't want to have to travel too far to schools and we will be considering a government, state-run high school. We have been on the website and looked up Wanniassa High School and Lanyon High. Can anybody give us advice regarding these schools? Our youngest son who is 4 years old will need to join pre-school somewhere nearby also. We were hoping to move into the catchment area of our chosen school, to avoid any hassle with entry right etc. We assume that most of the schools are well-run anyway, but our son is gentle natured - good to make friends, but small in stature and conscious of this, especially on the sports field. He loves swimming and anything to do with water sports - tennis also, but apart from that he is not a very sporty child!! Any advice would be greatly appreciated. :notworthy:

    High risk vs Low risk countries

    Is low risk country determined by where you have submitted your application or which passport you hold? For example, if i submit my application from UK (living currently in uk), but I am holding South African passport? Am i considered as a high or low risk applicant? Also, with these new rules in places will high/low risk still matter?

Thanks xx Shell xx:emoticon-signxmas:
  20. Hi I'm wondering if anyone can give me a definitive answer as to what age kids start attending High School? My daughter will be 12 in February 09 and having emailed different schools I seem to be getting conflicting information. One school says she will go to high school in year 7, another saying that year seven pupils are generally turning 13 during that school year and that she should go to a public school in year 6. I can't seem to find the answer anywhere and as we are moving out in January, most schools will be closed for the holiday period, so we would like to sort this sooner rather than later. Thanks :confused: Sid
  21. Hi there We have been looking at property prices on the Central Coast,NSW. We have pleasantly surprised at the apparent value for money. However I can’t seem to find much information about High Schools up there. Can anybody advise on both Public and /or the independent sector? Are there any areas significantly better than others? Thanks in advance!
