Just thought I'd add - my daughter is 14, we've been here nearly five years. Next week during the school holidays she is taking place in some workshops being held at Flinders Uni - the workshops she is doing include: philosophy, yoga, practical robotics, creating your own video game, photography, mooting (something legal!), creative problem solving, one on horticulture where they learn about how to use good bugs to fight parasites, and one on architecture. She is just back from a week's camp with the Australian Girls' Choir in Melbourne with about 290 other girls aged between about 12 and 18.
There are some great opportunities here, and of course, when you hang out with your friends, you can go to pool parties, play tennis at their house, or even head down to the beach! Certainly a bit more fun than hanging round shopping malls which her friends back in the UK seem to spend their free time doing!
Hope you enjoy your new life and get lots of opportunities for fun and adventure!

hi... me and my parents are staying with family in redwood park. its nice to have time with my four cousins as i have not seen them for nearly two years. Can u give me the names of any good high schools around this area. i am really looking foward to going to a school to meet new friends but i can be a bit shy. rach xxx
ok... i have applied for pedare christian college... (im not a christian) but it looks like a gd school. i will be going into middle school if i et accepted. if your son is 16 he will be in high school.
Hi Rach, You don't say whether you want to go to private or public school. Pedare is private, so is Gleeson Colleage, but Golden Grove High School is public, there is also Banksia Park High school, Modbury high, which are both public, all within your area.
Can't help with the schools query, sorry, but glad to see you're asking these sort of questions as you plan your new life here. Making a move like this is tough for adults, but I think it must be tougher for a teenager - apart from leaving friends there's the upheaval of different schools and education system etc.
Good luck with it all.
