    Moving to Mornington

    Hi :biggrin: Myself, my wife and our two boys 12 and 10 will hopefully be immigrating to Australia in a couple of months and will be located in Mornington. We have the option of being in Mount Eliza but we thought for the kids it would be better to start in a busier area and when we buy in 12 months or so then we can look at the options. I have been on some of the school websites but really have no idea what any of them are like. we wont be sending them private and from what I have read the public school system is fairly good. Does anyone have any thoughts on which would be the best primary and secondary school to send them to. This is very important. Thanks

  6. Hi there we have made the decision and now its time to get organised as baby no.2 is due in October. Does anyone know of any good cheap shipping companies that ship to Ireland? We will be shipping in late January or early February next year and don't plan on taking any furniture this time just 15 or so boxes. If anyone has space in their container we are heading back to Kenmare, County Kerry and currently live in Brunswick Heads near Byron Bay in NSW. any help greatly appreciated
  7. Our background-: I'm Irish and my OH is Australian. We have three kids,aged 7,9 and 10.This is my 5th visit to Oz and we spent 18mths here when the kids were younger.We left Oz to return to Ireland for a business opportunity[good decision] in '03 with the intention of giving life in Australia another go in 5yrs time.It took us a wee bit longer than that to get here but we have now spent 18mths here and have had a blast. We have had a lot of ups and downs since arriving but on the whole these have balanced each other out. The ups-: ~Our kids have dealt with the move amazingly well and it has made them more outgoing and confidant. ~Going back to working normal hours has given us more time together as a family. ~We have all been blessed with making some great friends and living amongst great neighbours. ~We have all realised that we love travelling and glad we took the opportunity to have three stopovers on the way. ~I have a tan for the first time in my life and I also took the chance to make some positive changes to my life by exercising more and giving up the dreaded smokes. The downs-: ~Our finances have taken a huge nosedive. ~We live within minutes of family here but rarely see them,they have no interest. ~Lots of opportunities here if you have the money to avail of them[we don't] ~The education system has not been as good as we had hoped. ~Australia seems to have become very americanised which we don't see as being a good thing. And the ridiculous-: ~Hubby went to a job interview and when the prospective employer looked through his CV and saw the name of the pub we ran in Ireland he said "I was there last year and ate there every day during my week long visit to the area"....Hubby got the job without having to say a word!!! All in all we have had a great time in Oz and it has been an amazing learning experience for the whole family.But...........we are missing some important ingredients for a happy life here so are returning home next year. Now all we have to do is enjoy every last minute of our time here...and decide which countries to visit on our way back.Can't wait. Life is a great adventure if you make it so.:yes:

    Hi from Ireland

    Hi everyone, Can across this website via the pomsinadelaide one. As the title says Hi from Ireland. We are hoping to move to Adelaide and have just begun the whole Visa process. I'm 39 & a Tax Consulant and my hubby is 40 & a panel beater. We have two kids, a little girl age 5 and a little boy age 1. As I'm the principal applicant I have the lovely job and taking the IELTS!!! I'm due to take the test on the 17th July and only discovered this week that I have to take the academic version and not the general training. studying is not going well so far and I keep failing the test papers. I can't seem to get the method right. Once thats done & hopefully passed, its on to getting my skills recognised by one of the accountants bodies, as yet undecided whether I apply to the chartered accountants or CPA. looking forward to talking to everyone throughout this whole process. Regards, Lynda

  12. Hey everyone, Something just clicked with me today and I remember seeing it somewhere on here before about there being a certain amount of time to being in or transfer money over from the sale of our family home in Ireland, at the time I didn't pay much heed thinking our house would be sold before we came but unfortunetly that is not the case we are here 5 months and house still has not sold. Anyway all of you PIO'S may or may not be able to shed some light on this for me. Thanks Hazel
  13. I am just at the beginning of looking into applying for a skilled migration visa. My DH is a fully qualified carpenter. Im a bit confused as I heard the TRA do not do carpentry any more and therefore we would need to apply to Vetassess for the skill assessement. However if there is a practical exam where would my husband go for this? Would it be to the UK? Sorry its prob a really stupid question so please bare with me. Thanks!
  14. Hi guys, I'm curious to see if any one has flown from Ireland and received the extra baggage allowance??? Also does any1 know if it is possible to actually get the allowance when flying from Ireland? and does it apply to specific airlines?:confused: Apologies for all the questions!!!:chatterbox: Thanks in advance, Louise

  17. My husband is an un-employed roofer. The prospects for work in ireland are getting worse each day. Is it better to apply for a visa, etc on your own or through an agency? Agencies seem to be costly. Would you recommend having a job offer in place? We have a young family, 4 and 1.5 yrs. We would love to move to Sydney but are willing to go where there is work. The whole process seems daunting, leaving family, our mortgage here, renting in oz, schools etc. Any advice welcome.:biggrin:
  18. Hi Just wondering if anyone have moved over form Northern Ireland recently? I have been here about 6 months and living in Lilydale. Cheers David
