[QUOTE=mandy.p;147342]Hi there my two fourteen year old daughters and I arrived in adelaide 3 wks ago leaving my 10 year old son and partner in the uk dealing with a nightmare sale of our house in the uk which is becoming a big problem. We are all homesick and missing are loved ones my daughters have started Findon High they have made friends but are sying the kids are boring they dont go out after school or on weekends so they feel like prisoners god love them so do I cos I havnt met anybody yet we are down in the dumps so if you like we could arrange to meet up I dont drive but have been finding my way round on buses.My daughters find the kids have got a different sense of humour here they were used to having a big group of friends in Liverpool who they could socialise with and get out and about so its been tears and tantrums and right now the want to go home x Mandy[/QUOTE
I can add to my earlier post and say that my daughter had this problem also in her old school.
Now that she attends a different school it is now completely different.
Her old friends did not go out much out of school but at this school she often goes from school to friends houses or Marion, Subway etc. At the weekends we don,t see her, she,s at friends having sleepovers.
Not saying its the answer to your problems but it was for us.
