We currently live in Kent, UK. We are looking at emigrating to Adelaide hopefully by December 2008 if all goes well. We have loads of questions mainly about schooling as we have a boy who is due to finish his GCSE's in July and a girl with one year to go. What happens when/if we get over to oz? Which school year will they be in?? We have just had our positive TRA back as I have NVQ's in childcare (Level 4) Pathway D caused us to change the method of going to oz from my husband, a glazier with nearly 30 years experience to using my NVQ's. Anyone else in similar boat?
In Stockport, Cheshire and its blowing a gale and raining!!
We are in Woodcroft, and have been in Oz for nearly 18 months.. We moved here from North Wales and still miss some things from back home. I asked my 8 year old if she still misses home and she said that she would love to have a visit there but would not move back permanently.
We still have ups and downs - finances, making new friends, schooling etc.. but I do think as a whole we have made the right decision (fingers crossed!). Work is very different over here and I think that we were probably naive to think that things would be the same as in the UK, however I love the weather and the friendliness of the people here would say to people considering it - give it a go, its an amazing experience!
Canada until we fly on March 3rd!!!
Thanks. I'm sure once we get over there it will be the same for us. It's definately the schooling issues that concern me most with two teenagers!! I'm glad you are enjoying it so far. I think it would have been better for the children if we had tried 10 years ago but that's the way things went along the track. We'll keep you informed of progress
