I forgot to mention my friends kids went to Nativity primary in Aberfoyle Park when they lived here and thought it was great, it's the only one I have any knowledge of - sadly for us, they had been and gone before we even got here.
I know the Nativity well. I'm from Northern Ireland as well.
I'm in education in SA. Please feel free to PM me and I'll give you the warts and all.
Thanks for that Pesky, Bodie. I think i might wait until i get there and go and view 1 or 2 schools and let the kids decide. I am looking through all kinds of sights for houses to rent and cant decide where, every time i think yes i like the look of this area i find another and now it seems i love most of Adelaide!!! Would love to be beside the beach for the kids, but im not really a sit on the beach kind of person, so think a house with a pool would be ideal, 3 maybe 4 bedrooms with a bit of a garden for kids to play. Would rather not spend too much on rent, so am aware will have to live out of Adelaide but dont really know hich way to go!!! Up towards Semaphore, Grange west lakes etc or out towards Hallett Cove etc what do you think?????
Yes we are probably going back Jan 09

Our rental cost $380 per week. Its not hugh but plenty of space and we love it.
The school here is great.

Semaphore, Grange and West Lakes may be quite expensive - fantastic beaches at the first two. We paid $330 weekly when we rented in Hallett Cove almost 2 years ago for a nearly new 4 bed house and even though hubby was adament we wouldn't buy here, this is where we have settled!
Thanks for that - my kids are already happily settled at schools as we are here almost two years!
