This is aimed at every older teenager / young adult on this forum. My family and I will be arriving on the Wednesday 10th February 2010. We are a young couple with a daughter Shannon aged 17, son Nathan aged 21 and another daughter Charlotte aged 11. I am extremely worried about my kids being isolated and not gaining good friends in Adelaide. I am not so worried about my Nathan has he is a professional sportsman and has very outgoing nature, but its my Shannon she is more resiliant about our family adventure with our new life in Adelaide. Basically does not want to be in Adelaide. So what I am hoping to arrange once we have settled is to arrange a a BBQ at our place for all you teenagers / young adults to socialise. Hopefully this will not just help my kids but other young people to meet new friends. Maybe some like minded parents can tag along as well lol. Obviously we will not be in Adelaide until Feb, but I will post an update nearer the time. Furthermore I have coached and managed soccer teams for the past 22 years here in the UK, plus my son has been a professional. I am going to look into sorting out a team from scratch and enter a Saturday/Sunday league. Maybe we could call the team PIA FC. What do you think moderators. We could arrange Parents V Kids Soccer match. I understand that you young ones - that it is horrible for us older people/parents trying to get you friends etc, but this BBQ is meant with all good intentions. Hopefully some good can come from this socialable event and you had the chance to gain acquaintances and exchange contact details and sorted out your own future arrangements regarding meeting each other. I look forward to your replies...................
OK, so this is probably VERY cheeky but here goes... Husband Mark (39), me (38), Evan (11) and Ferdy (7) moved from Surrey to NZ 7 years ago. We would like to make the move to Aus and really like the idea of Pacific Pines. We have spent a year each travelling around Aus and have holidayed as a family on the Sunshine Coast and Sydney but we think for us as a family we would be happy on the Gold Coast. I am almost finished studying for my B.Ed (Teaching) so will be a qualified Primary school teacher and Mark works in the sports turf industry. Mark and I are coming over on the 18th Sept until the 21st September to Broadbeach for Mark's 40th and will be visiting Pacific Pines for a look around. Any chance of meeting some of the locals? We would love to find out about the reality of living in Qld and whether it is something we as a family would enjoy (we're pretty convinced it is...). Hope we are not being too forward!:wubclub:
Anyone out there fancy getting together for drinks one night - our place, kids welcome. Boards are packed full of Brizzy & Perth Poms, so it'd be nice to find out where the Sydneyites are and get to meet some of you. I'm thinking 3rd May, 6.30-7pm. Who can make it?
Any Sydney-based poms interested in a get together on Australia Day? It would be nice to meet some of you other Sydney PIO people and have a chat about our experiences so far in Oz. Might I suggest the Harbour View Hotel down at the Rocks from noon onwards? It's a great olde worlde pub that is very handy for all the Harbour-based activities that day (Ferry Race, Tall Ships etc), they welcome kids (outside) plus they do a great sausage sizzle. And the beers not bad either. If anyone can make it on the 26th let me know and I will make myself known!
