Hi everyone, I'm due to move to Adelaide in January 2014 for a year with my family(kids aged 7,9 and 4).
I came for a brief visit in May and loved it. My dilemma is that i've been told that my kids would be put back a year due to the differences in the UK/Oz schooling systems.
As we are only there for 1 year, I do not want my kids to be struggling at school on their return to the UK, plus my 4 year old who would have started reception in September 2013 in the UK, cannot be offered a school place as legally he needs to be aged 5 to start school.
Any advice on how to proceed/convince the principles would be appreciated.
thank you in advance.
