      Hi, we just paid $2800 for a full year at Pilgrim. Personally I think it's money well spent. The difference from the state school she moved from is massive. High school is another matter though

      My husband is a PE teacher and im an OT, we have 4 boys, 15,9,3,1. my husband will be staying on to finish his contract in NZ till the end of the year, if all goes well, if its turns into a nightmare then he leave his job and try an get some relieving work in adelaide until he can find a permanent position. our kids are used to a quiet country school, with only 50 students and 2 classes. we cant afford private schooling, has anyone got first hand experience of a good public school that isnt too big, our 9 year old is dyslexic and he works better in a smaller class environment.

      we have been looking for suburbs also and wnat to be located where we can access the city and parks and beach within about 20-30 mins hassle free driving.

      we have been looking at happy valley does anyone know about the schools in this suburb, and also ? day care

      also this time around we are definetly wanting to be settling into a suburb with lots of brits, as we know that it helps to be around like minded people
      hallett cove might be a good move tons of brits here and near the beach
      Need a reliable painter? need a wallpaper feature wall? then call Brant new painters.

      My daughter goes to the Hub Primary which is a very good R-7 School.

      Happy Valley also has a primary school too but I cant vouch for that school.

      We have live in and around Happy Valley for the last four years and love the area.
