I am new to the forum, but have followed this forum along with Poms in Oz for the last three years nearly. That is how long it has taken us to gain our permanent residence visa! I never thought the day would come and now that it has, I am getting really nervous about our move to Adelaide in Feb 2012. I am a Primary Teacher with 6 years experience and have read how hard it is to secure a position, so for now I am just concentrating on finding an area in Adelaide to live with my husband and daughter who is 12 years old.
I was wondering if anybody out there could give me any advice on the following:
Which would be the best areas for us to live? There are so many that we have looked at, but we just can't decide. We have never been to Oz before, so we really are finding it hard to make the choice.
Also which schools would be good to consider for our daughter, would she be in Secondary School or would she need to repeat a year in Primary, not sure how it all works?
The last thing is any advice on securing rentals would be very much appreciated. I know these questions must be posted all the time, but any help would be great.
