      Where are you coming from?

      Hope you don't mind me butting in on your thread..we have just booked our flights for November to Adelaide and we have picked Aberfoyle Park as a place to stay with my husband and 4 boys. Seems like a great place and wondered what the primary schools are like??
      If you have any advice or information I would really appreciate it.

      Thanks

      Hi Lia

      Don't apologise for coming in on this thread, the more the merrier We are all probably looking for the same information and it all helps.

      Aberfoyle Hub School - Department of Education and Children's Services

      Link above to the Aberfoyle Hub School I found, hope it gives you some useful info.

      Four boys!! We've just got the one (11) and he keeps us on our toes ! Add the two girls (10 and 8) and life is very definitely not dull, how old are your boys?

      Who are you flying with in November? When we booked our flight, we made sure there was great in flight entertainment on both legs. Thank you Singapore Airlines!

      Hope everything goes well for you all.

      Hi

      We are going over in August via Singapore, flight booked for the 19th arrive 21st. I'm very lucky as my cousin lives in Aberfoyle Park so I'm getting some great inside information. Sorry if I gave you the impression that we were there already. Our eldest is 11 now but will be twelve when we fly, so adult flight price for him in August.

      What stage are you at with your application process? Wherever you are I hope it goes smoothly for you

      Hi we are awaiting the big decision from the high commission! All our paperwork is in now and there is nothing else we can do!
      We have applied for a Carers Visa and will be living someone near Blakeview/Elizabeth area. It's been a long road to get to this point but fingers crossed
      I kinda think that they wouldn't have sent us for our medicals if they were going to say no
      I am sure I will post on here when we know one way or another - it's been a real inspiration, reading about others journeys and consequently there arrival reports.
      Thanks for your good wishes and good luck again for all your planning - do you have your house up for sale? I think that is the most difficult part - just how long do you need to sell you house and be ready to go

      Hi Wendy

      I don't know if this helps, but it only took four months for our visa to come through after we were asked to go for our medicals (Sept 09 medicals Dec 09 visa decision ) so I'm sure it won't be long before you have your decision.

      House is for sale, not much movement here locally in the market but we need to go over to validate the visas and get the kids settled in at their new schools, so we have decided that if necessary we will leave the house for sale empty. I have also found out that I am a paper squirrel and even though we have had a major declutter, we need to do lots more. I haven't even looked in the sheds yet

      You're in the same boat as ourselves MAt turns 12 at the end of august so adult price for him..typical!! Singapore seems to be the airline that gets the best reviews and certainly we want to make the journey as easy as possible. I decided to really depress myself and checked out flying first class and even suites are on offer...how the other half live!!!

      Agree with the airline reviews for Singapore, just the increased leg room sold it to me. The food is supposed to be okish for airline food and the films, and games etc looks good on board. We've also been told they are great with kids. We made sure our first leg was on the Airbus Heathrow - Singapore. We've flown now three times with the kids long haul and they have been great, but with flights this long you need all the help you can get!

      How much was first class tickets? The suites sound amazing, I've always wanted to turn left at a plane door, managed business class once pre kids that was great :)

      Hi,

      We booked our one way flights on the same day with Singapore Airlines!! The double baggage allowance and great recommendations did it for us.

      Can't wait, we feel like we haven't done enough yet. Have got the first removal company coming tomorrow (Pickfords) and haven't really sorted out anything in the house yet, but really need to get on with it!!

      We have managed to secure somewhere to live in Adelaide, thanks to a generous family member and we have managed to get the kids enrolled in a school. Still feels like we have loads to do and learn and time is running out!!

      Cheers

      Gary

      Hi Gary

      We'll probably see you at Singapore Airport :) Two zombies and three kids, we should be easy to spot. We're planning to use the pool there and we've already booked some rooms to chill out in.

      You have prompted me to send an email to a High School re enrolment . Probably need to get a move on with that really so I hope you don't mind me asking but which primary school have you enrolled them in?

      Hope everything goes well with the house

      Hi,

      I would imagine we will look much the same as our youngest is 5 and she is going through a really inquisitive talkative stage where I wouldn't be surprised if she talked constantly for the first 12 hour leg!

      We haven't booked any rooms yet, but I was intending to do so. Do I book at the transit hotel website ?

      We have enrolled them at Westminster in Marion, we went through a huge selection process to narrow down the schools, we then emailed 6 of them to find that only 2 had availability in the year groups we needed.

      The final decision was made based on the league tables Find a school | ACARA
      They were really useful in the end and basically made the decision for us.
