    Hi Everyone,

     

    My boyfriend and I have finally made the decision to move to be closer to his family who are now permanent residents in Flagstaff Hill in Adelaide. We are currently based in Blackpool. I have 2 children with my ex husband however who is refusing to let me take the kids to Australia. His argument being he doesnt see why it is better for the kids to be the other side of the world to there dad. I am not denying he is not a good father but he only see's the kids once a fortnight and I am trying to prove the kids will have a better upbringing in Australia. I have already discussed the fact that we would fully support him if he wanted to move over too and also discussed the fact that we would not be taking any maintenance off him so he would have plenty of money to make the flights over to visit them as and when he pleases.

     

    Does anyone have any kind of information on state schools showing pass rates etc for High schools. Id like to find the best high school I can so I can show him and compare it with high schools where we are currently. Can anyone help, we are hoping to get his backing before my solicitors appointment next week.

     

    Thanks

     

    Julie

    Ask him to remember what life was like when he was a child. Thats what the kids get here, they play out for hours with their mates on the estates. Well afterall it is summer holidays over Christmas over here.

     

    School, sorry you would have to talk to my mrs (her who must be obeyed) But the kids learn lot, they are very confident, very independant in such a short space of time. They have many friends from all types of backgrounds from ll over the world, i guess most of all they enjoy going to school and enjoy life here.

    Yes they miss things, but as time passes................. well i guess i am back around to when we were kids again.

     

    To deny a child this oportunity is selfish (easy to say once here i know) but trust me, the world is a very small place once you have made this journey.

    Iv tried but he is so laid back he thinks his miserable lifestyle is ok (bearing in mind he's 31, lives with his mum, has no girlfiend and is in a job he's done for 14 years with no chances of promotion and was offered redundancy before xmas as his occupation is suffering in the depression).

     

    Im spending every day trying to prove him wrong but I could do with some good information... I found an article in the Telegraph from October showing how Australia is listed as Top 20 countries to live in (number 2 in the list) and yet UK hasnt even made it onto the list!!!

     

    I know once they get out there the lifestyle will suit us all, we enjoy sport, love being outside etc. We are not materialistic and do not want much so financially we are not looking for the dream of more money but to be able to see my children come home from School and play out each day would be a dream come true.
