    Find a house you want to live in and rock up to the local school and enrol. Take your visa, evidence of your home address and your kids’ Vaccination records and Bob’s your uncle. They might ask for you to give them a day to get things organised. Schools go back usually just after Australia Day. If you’re trying to enrol before the kids go back, same applies as staff are usually there before term starts.

    In QLD they go back to school (public) for the start of the year week beginning 22nd, although they take enrolments all year round.

    If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

    If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

    “Voluntary” contributions are up to the school then there are all the add ons for excursions, visiting teachers, performances etc and in secondary there are subject specifics for elective courses. If you think $10pw for primary and $15pw for secondary you should be ok unless the school has big camps or things like that. Fee paying schools anywhere between $5k and $20k pa per child )Catholics are cheapest.
