Is there anyone out there who know of a school in the South of Adelaide that has single school years or allows the children to move up a year, or streams them for literacy and numeracy. Our son who is in year 5 here and would be moving to year 6 in Sept in the UK(except we will be coming out to SA then) has just had his end of year results and he is working at a level two years ahead ie the national expected levels at the end of year 7!!
We have been advised that he will have to start in year 4 in Oz because he will not be 10 until August and this is worrying as he will then only have access to work 4 years below his current level!!!! He is not challenged enough here and does get bored - mathematics is his bag and he just loves it so much. Can anyone help???? Even the private schools we have contacted have said he would have to start in year 4. If it wasn't for missing out on the social side of things I would be tempted to educate him at home until Feb so he can at least start in year 5. HELPPPPPP
