We moved to Dubai in 2005. At that time my son (9 years at the time) was following the Brazilian Academic year (Jan to Nov). Here in Dubai the academic year starts in Aug/Sep. When we enrolled him he had to start again the 3rd grade seeing that he hasnít finished the 4th grade (he was half way). Now he is on the 6th grade and our fears are that whenever we move to Adelaide (which we are expecting to happen next Jan/2010) he will have to start again the 6th grade....He is 12 now and going to be 13 in Dec. Any idea if we can enroll him to the 7th grade? If he has to start again the 6th grade he will end up losing 2 years of his academic life and on the top of that, he will be too old to join a 6th grade. Any help or advice will be highly appreciated.
