Folks, I need some advice.
We arrived in January with a 7 year old who totally loved school and was doing really well. We enrolled her in what is apparently one of the better schools in the Golden Grove area, but since February, she has been losing motivation and says she doesn't learn anything. I have looked at her books and she does appear to be doing things she did in Reception and Year 1 in the UK, but when I mentioned to the teacher that she was bored - it didn't go well (I was a bit more diplomatic than that:)) Apparently they don't like kids moving too far ahead of the others in the class and so currently my daughter is cruising and not being challenged.
She keeps saying she wants to go back to her old school in the UK but I think it is just because the comparison is not good to her new school. They don't do composite classes where she is.
Am I just being paranoid or is this not right? By the end of this year, she will have done 16 months in year 2 having started with the school year in the UK in September, which is fine if she is making progress, but there seems to be no OOOOMPH!
Before I look at the possibility of her moving schools yet again, I am interested in thoughts from any of you with kids about the transition from UK to Oz schools
