Can anyone help me with this one? What age do children start school in Adelaide and what is the cut off date with birthdays? Elise is due to start school in England in September 08, we are hoping to be in Adelaide around that time and I really don't want her to start school here if she misses the cut off point in Adelaide and ends up being out of school for over a year. She will turn 5 on January 29th 2008, when will she start school? Will she be ok for school year starting Jan 08? Sorry for going on! Any response appreciated!!!
