  1. Hi, I previously posted a thread on whether good grades matter to get into private schools, and from the majority of replies i get the feeling that they do. So i now need to know if anybody knows of any good Public schools that are able to give extra help to students with special needs? Attention Deficit Disorder and possibly Aspergers Syndrome. Obviously i have to do my own research but reccomendations always help. Its not that he needs a special needs school, its just that he struggles with working alone all of the time. many Thanx Jen x

  5. Hi My parents are wanting to come over and spend 3 or 6 months in Australia and were wondering if anyone wanted to house swap ?? We are living in Kallaroo North of Perth WA so somewhere not too far away would be ideal. Their house is a beautiful 4 bed detached 1930's traditional English house with large driveway and large gardens in the North Lincolnshire Wolds - located in a small market town. Pictures available. Anyway if anyone interested please contact me. Also if anyone has done this before and has any feedback on the idea good or bad experiences I'd love to hear about it. It seems like a good idea if both properties are of equal quality and the people are genuine, trustworthy and reliable I guess. They looking to come out September time and stay over Christmas and New Year maybe until March. Anyway nothing ventured nothing gained and all that :idea:

Would love to meet up with some mums midweek for playdates and socialising as I'm at home with the boys. We are living in Frenchs Forest in the Northern Beaches but am happy to drive to different suburbs to get out and about. As much as we would love a night out in the pub but we are bit lacking in baby sitters but we have just bought the new BBQ which we are dying to test properly :-) Get in touch if you fancy catching up.

  23. A Northern Territory government delegation is in Ireland at the moment week trying to woo skilled workers to fill a job vacancies in the Top End. The Northern Territory has had the lowest jobless rate in the nation this year, hovering at about three per cent. At the Working Abroad Expo at the RDS in Dublin yesterday, queues stretched around the block with around 5000 people attending the weekend expo. The NT's employment minister Rob Knight was at the expo. He said the NT is expected to need at least 20,000 new workers over the next five years because the jobs cannot be filled locally or elsewhere from Australia. There are vacancies in 130 professions, Mr Knight said, from construction to the booming mining and medical sectors. Despite its vast size and low population, the Territory is undergoing a housing boom. Greg Bicknell from the chamber of commerce acknowledged that the Northern Territory was not as sought-after a location as cities such as Melbourne or Sydney, but it had one critical selling point. “We have more employment opportunities. Other cities in Australia are undergoing a recession because the strength of the Australian dollar is making the manufacturing sector uncompetitive.”
  24. We moved from the UK a month ago and have just found a place in Collaroy we will be moving in to next week. We'd love to meet anyone else in the area....with our without children though we do have a 20 month old. Here's to the fab weather! Sally. x

    Northern Suburbs

    Would really like to know what areas in the Northern suburbs are good places to rent and stay. Visited 2 years ago but only saw down South, liked what i saw at Rockingham, so something similar up North would be nice. Any advice would be good, thanks
