Hello all! Been on this site soooo much during our whole immigration process - it's been great reading other people's experiences both this end and in Oz ... but i didn't dare introduce myself in case we never actually got our visas!!! Anyway - we now have - YIPEE!!! and so i thought it was about time for introductions! I'm Jacinta  an art teacher in former life and now full- time mum to three little horrors - Hannah [3 n' half], Eva [just 2 ] and Luke [5 months]. Hubby mark  is an English and Media studies teacher and we're in sunny Oldham... grim grim grim!
Just got our visas last month and going through the chaos of getting shipping quotes, doing the hovel up ready to sell etc etc. It all feels pretty daunting! We're hoping to be ready to make the move to Adelaide in late July/ early Aug ... just keep having nightmares about the plane journey - i feel sorry for whoever lands a seat next to us lot with 3 kids under 4!! So many questions to ask... and so little time!
The main one we need to know is - what steps does my husband need to take now, to be able to try to get a teaching job asap when we get out there? Also - does anyone know if it is possible to apply for teaching posts from England? As you can probs gather we are pretty clueless so any advice or info anyone has would be muchly appreciated!
