  1. Hi - just re-posting this on the education forum: We are looking to finally make the move to Perth next year. My little boy will be 5 and, as I understand it, be of pre-primary school age. I know pre-primary school places are subject to availability so was wondering if anyone else has had experience of trying to get their children into pre-primary? Is it easy, difficult, long waiting times etc? Can you find out which schools have availabilty before deciding upon an area to rent in or do you have to have an address to get into pre-primary? Any help would be greatly appreciated. We are currently unsure whether or not it would be better to wait another year so that Joshua is 6 and, therefore, guaranteed a state school primary place. Alex

    pre-primary 175 work experience

    Really need help!! I'm a teacher hoping to get in under 175 pre-primary. I need to prove 3 out of the last 4 years working pre- primary. The last 2 years I have worked teaching nursery/reception classes, but the year before this I was working for a few months with a supply agency before being taken on by the school for 7 months (3 days working at pre-primary so this will count) Basically I'm short by 5 months which I was working on supply- is there any way I can prove I worked 3 days a week in pre primary age groups? What evidence would be needed? Hope someone can help Thanks
  5. I have a problem with my skills assessment and I hope anyone here can give me some advise on what best to do. I will explain my situation first : I have a bachelor pre-primary schoolteacher gained at a Belgian university college and have 10 years of experience. The problem is that this is only a three year bachelor and to get my skills assessed it has to be at least 4 years of study. In Australia there are several courses that provide tyhat extra year to get teacher registration. And it was my original plan to go study again; But with the changes now being made, I don't know if this is the wright choice? I would rather do an extra year In Belgium, Holland, Uk or an online course, but here's the thing. No one can tell me what course would be suiteable. Even AITSL who does the assessment can't provide me with that information. I was hoping that anyone on this forum has been in the same situation or anyone who's knows what I could do. I would be very thankfull :notworthy:
  6. Hi guys, this is my first post here! I've read lots of good stuff and have finally joined up as i have a question about emigrating to Australia as a pre-primary school teacher. I am currently living and working in Japan as a teaching assistant and teacher (i have 2 jobs) and have been here for 5 years. During this time I have decided that teaching is for me, and would like to ultimately emigrate to Australia and become a pre-primary school teacher. The obvious route I can see would be to return to the UK and do a PGCE teaching course, get experience and then apply for emigration from the UK, but I was wondering if i could go directly to Australia from Japan and do my teaching course there (on a study visa), and upon graduation go through the Australian system to get employment. Here's some info about me:- I am 35 years old and from the UK, I have a Ba(HONS)in Graphic design (but no teaching qualifications yet) I have 5 years recent experience as a teaching assistant to 3-16 year olds and 1 year experience teaching solo to 15 year old students, I lived in Australia for 1 year on a working holiday visa. I want to emigrate for good. Any info is greatly appreciated from anyone with experience of training to be a teacher in Australia or just applying in general. If you want to know more about me then just ask. Thanks in advance:biggrin:
  7. My family is moving to Perth in August this year and we think we'll be settling in Baldivis or Secret Harbour area. I'm worried about my son who is 5 and will not be able to start school until February. Will there be enough pre-primary places available for him? He will have already completed a year in school in the UK and I'm worried he'll be with me at home for 7 months. Also I have another son who is 8 and I'm presuming he'll get into a primary school easily - does anyone have children in primary school in these areas? Thanks for any advice you can offer. Mel .
  8. Hi there, Can anyone tell us which are the best pre-primary schools in Bunbury and which should be avoided? Also any costs would be appreciated. Cheers, Ross & Victoria

    Pre-primary education in Perth

    We are moving to Perth in February for 2 years. We have a 5 year old and a 3 year old. My 5 year old will have been attending Primary 1 for 6 months and knows all his numbers, letters and can read very well for his age. I am concerned about starting over in non-compulsary pre-Primary education as we intend to come back in 2 years. I don't want him to be behind when we return and I don't want him repeating things he already knows for a whole year. Someone I know in Perth suggested I try to get him in to Year 1 but I think he would be too young. Do you know any schools that have very good pre-primary systems? I would rather not enrol him in a private school but it might be an option if teach a more advance curriculum. Please help!!! I'm so anxious about it all I almost wish we weren't going.
  10. Hi I have come to Oz on an International student visa (572) with my 5 year old son. We arrived in January and I went to register him for Pre-primary in February, I was told as pre-primary wasn't compulsary and he would be put on a waiting list (annoying as he has had education in UK but couldn't do much about it). I filled in a registration form with all our details, including visa type we were on. Today I had a phonecall from the school to say he had a place and could start tomorrow (yippee I thought). Went to the school to fill out a form and headed off to the uniform shop to get him kitted out. Just before I got to the uniform shop I had another phone call from the school saying he now COULDN'T have the place because of the visa we are on and they had to give it to another child who has higher priority than an international student. My son was so excited about going to school and I then had to tell him he wasn't going - he was so sad!! I was wondering if anyone else had come across on a student visa and had problems getting their children into school. I would have thought that the Oz government would welcome an international student into their schools as we have to pay extortionant fees for our children to be there. Also I can't believe the school didn't check my previous registration form to find out my residency status before ringing me to give me the good news (which turned into bad news). Sorry for rambling but I had to get it off my chest, the Oz education system has really annoyed me today. :arghh: Carolyn x
  11. Hi there, I was just wondering if anyone can give me some clarification on the kindy to pre-primary system. We have 2 kids, our eldest will be 4 by the time we get to Perth and although i have been doing some research, I found it all a bit confusing. I read that 4 year olds can attend kindy at aged 4 and then go on to pre-primary before starting year 1 at primary school. Can anyone tell me answers to the following: a) how many weekly sessions in kindy are you entitled to or do you still pay for them b) is pre-primary really 5 full days a week and if so, why isn't it just called primary as it is full time anyway. c) is pre-primary compulsory/recommended? Many thanks in advance, Caroline
  12. Sorry if this is a stupid question? Is Kindergarten the same as pre-school? and Pre-primary like the reception class, do they attend 9 -3pm? Im trying to look on the web but not getting anywhere. Many thanks Angelcake
