  2. Safety in Adelaide

    Adelaide has very good areas and not so good areas. As a mum of 2 young kids (6&9) when we arrived 4 years ago I believe it is much safer here. Kids are allowed to be kids and compared to their uk cousins they are much less worldly. I gave no issue letting my kids go to shopping centres and movies alone etc as well as giving them freedom to bike around and play out with friends in our area. Something that didn't happen in the uk. I'm also a police officer so do see all sides, good and bad but I still feel safe and content with where we chose to live.
  3. looking for friendship

    Hi- we are at Highbury and have been here 4 years. Ours son is 10 and daughter 11. Happy to meet up
  4. Up market areas

    we are at Highbury too and love it. We live just near the community gardens and they are fab. Foothills of Adelaide are the best in my opinion but depends what you like..
  5. Costco membership... Discuss!

    I went for a look around as a non member as I was a member in the U.K. For us, who are not brand loyal and buy products that are on special it was no cheaper and I don't think worth the membership. However, others swear by the place..... personal preference!!
  6. Teaching Jobs

    My husband teaches year 7, the last year of primary school here. He prepared a cv when we arrived and after registering as a teacher began visiting schools. He also regoistered with relief teaching pools which are st a number of different schools. Within a few days he had a few days work and then was offered and started a contract at one of the schools. Just 4 weeks after arriving in 2013 he had a contract which became permanent. He may have been lucky but if you are prepared to work in northern suburbs, which tend to be harder and more challenging roles with higher staff turnover he should find work without too many issues.

  15. Highbury primary school ?

    Hi- we looked at high bury when we arrived and tbh preferred athelstone. High bury is a very large primary school and was too big for our kids, moving from a school of around 280 in the uk. It had nice facilities but there are better schools nearby in my opinion. Admissions are really quick in Oz so just book a few visits for when you arrive and form your own decision based on you and your family.
