Having now established that we are renting our UK home out we will now need to rent in Adelaide. I would be happy to take advantage of the OAA provided and live there until we find a place in a nice area, however, the OAA can be anywhere and when we arrive next July I wanted to get the kids into school after a couple of weeks, I feel they should not have a long time off school with the Australian summer hols are in December.
So say I get OAA in Port Adelaide but we are going to look to move to Wattle Park for the school, I couldn't apply to the Wattle Park school zone could I, living in Port Adelaide? I wouldn't want to settle them into a school near the OAA when I may have no intention of staying in this area. What did other people do about this? Or did you keep the kids off for a while until you found your feet? My daughter is dead excited about starting school over there sooner rather than have an extended holiday.
One last thing when you specify which area you would prefer your OAA to be, did anyone actually get the area they wanted? Is the choice limited to certain areas?
I may sound ungrateful but I will be appreciative of the lower priced accomodation that OAA can offer whilst finding our feet but find the whole school scenario a bit of a concern.
Any of your thoughts on this is appreciated.
