Hi, we are still in the very early stages of applying to migrate. However we are fairly sure we want to go to Adelaide. We have 3 children 6, 3 (almost ) and 5 months. My 6 year old has just started Year 2 (which including reception means she is now in her 3rd year) but looking at the school calculator for Australia she would only have been due to start school in Jan!!! She is already reading and writing and we have had no end of trouble getting her to where she is because of concentration issues and possibly ADHD. I am torn as to whether it is good that she could settle in at an easy pace or she will sit back too much and get bored and therefore all the concentration issues will arise again. I have read that private schooling can be an option and that they may look more at the child's ability as opposed to their age but my concern is they all seem to be very religious. I am not religious and tbh if I were to swing towards any "belief" it is pagan and I want my children to chose what they wish to believe and not have it forced down their throats.
We are thinking we would look at the beach suburbs in Adeliade, an anyone recommend any private schools that are not religious? Or has anyone had any experience with a situation similar to mine? I have to ask permission from my ex to take my daughter abroad and one of my arguments will have to be education will be the same or better and she will not suffer so I want to be well prepared.
