First time ever posting on one of these sights so here goes.
Got out permanent residents visa granted aroud four weeks ago. Had ogirinally planned just to go straight out at the end of this year, if managed to sell house by then. Decided couldn't leave for AUS without having visited before so going for a recci trip soon with two children (aged 11 and 9) to have a good look round at areas, schools etc etc.
Lucky enough to be offered accommodation with my husbands uncle who lives in Gawler which will save us a lot of money.
I had been wondering about schools like many others on this site. I think I am starting to get to grips with it after a few months. Seems there are three types of school to me, state school, what looks like a semi-private and the private/grammar schools. The higher fee paying private schools are beyond us but could manage the lower fee paying schools. What does anybody think about the high schools. Have been looking a Aberfoyle Park are, around Crafers and Piccaddilly and will also look at Gawler where staying during visit. Not ruling out any areas so any information would be good.
