    Fish Dying in Cape York River

    Over 1000 fish were found dead last week in a Cape York river, most of them were barra and jewfish, still no idea why, they say it could be the weather but come on surely this wouldn't kill all those fish would it?
  3. Hi All, We're in Oz perm (moved in Sept) but our 18 year old daughter returned to the UK as she was pregnant to her UK boyfriend (....found out on the way over here in Singapore.....total nightmare !). Well baby's now 3 months old now and she's picking her life up and has been accepted to statrt college next week. Problem is its 2 bus journeys with the baby ! Is anyone selling their car ..for a song...like we ended up doing ? If you are this is a needy cause and we could really do with the help. Many thanks Caroline (PS sorry if this sounds like a begging letter or a sob story...)
  4. Have just read this article Darwin property more expensive than New York and London | News.com.au and thought it interesting, i dont really want to start another 'is there going to be a housing bubble burst' thread. You would really have to be troppo to want to pay more than half a million to live in an average place in Darwin! but it does say alot about the housing markets in Australia. Bob

    Anyone from York Need advice

    Hi there, We are moving back to the UK roughly November time we need to stay till the dog clear quarntine here. I have a job offer practically in Harrogate when I want it, But its soooo expensive. We are now looking at York as the commute by train is only 30 minutes from the town centre, Does anyone know which is the best area to live in in terms of train stations schools etc. Me and my husband are average joes earners nothing flash so we won't be living in the heart of town in some posh apartment or anything but just some general ideal's on the better area's town to live in etc my son is 10 so we need a primary school for a few months then off to secondary school so something close by or bike ride would be good. Any advice would be most welcome. Thanks Sarah

    IELTS test at York

    Hello all I have just returned form my IELTS test at Melton College York and thought I would share my experience and thoughts with all you lovely POI members. I had to take the IELTS as I have hit 40 this year and need the points to get my 175 visa. I arrived this morning at 8-30 nice and early to get one of the "limited" parking spaces. Spaces were not too limited though and you could get quite a few cars in there so don't worry too much about that. Registration took place from 09-00 with people queueing at two tables for the different types of test. As I was doing the general test I went to that table. Most people were doing the academic test to allow them to work or study here in the UK. There were approx 10 people doing the general test to get to OZ and as such we tended to group together amongst the many other nationalities present. I met a great group of people who all new about or used POI, so hello to all of you! The tests themselves were done under very strict exam conditions with a shouty man telling people to shut up and sit down. Many of us commented that it was like being back at school! The listening test came first. This seemed quite easy, but required a good deal of concentration. If your mind wanders you have had it, so concentrate! The reading text was next. There was no break between the tests so no time to relax or talk amongst ourselves. The reading was the test I found hardest. Not because I can't read, but because the questions are designed to be misleading. Several are in the "true, false & not given" variety. I still am unsure if the whales who go to eastern Australia arrive before or after the ones that go to western Australia, but I think that was a not given answer. I now know quite a bit about whales! The writing task was next. Once again there was no break in proceedings so off we went. We had to write a letter of 150 words which if you are still reading this, you will know I didn't have too much trouble with. Next we had a 250 word essay to do. Once again no real problem. We had to leave the exam hall then and move to another site. Our speaking exams were done in the afternoon from 2-00 onwards. We all sat in a canteen and waited to be called in to speak. This was the easiest part of the day. As english (yorkshire version) is my first language I just had to waffle on about what I thought on a few diverse subjects - no probs there then. I can (as my wife often says) talk the proverbial pot eye to sleep. All in all this was an interesting day if you enjoy spending £95 to prove you can speak English. I will of course add to this post once I get my results - I hope I pass :unsure: as the cost is a bit steep and it would just add more time to the job. Best of luck to all who I met today and I hope his helps if you are having to take the IELTS in the future! Mr tyke

    Medicals in York

    Hi everyone We do regularly log on and read all the varied and wonderful threads people enter on this site, they certainly do help you through the looooong process. We are currently at the stage on our PR 136, where we've got our full ack and file number at the beginning of January and now waiting for the ever elusive CO :SLEEP:, so we thought we'd go ahead and book the xrays, medicals and do the police checks :policeman:. My question being has anyone had their medicals at York hospital??? What were they like etc etc etc??? or is it best not to know. Also does anyone know roughly how long the wait is at the moment between getting a file number and getting a Case Officer??? - I know, how long is a piece of string, just thought I'd ask thanks for any replies in advance Mrs L
