    From what I can gather the Aussie school year runs 4 months behind ours. In England the school year starts in September whereas in Australia I think it starts in January/February???? after their summer holiday. IIRC she is in year 11 in England finishing the year in about July ish...coming to Australia she would still be in year 11 but finishing in their year in December ish. Think thats right but will gladly stand corrected as we are not even there yet.

    i think you will find it's a year and 4 months. Year 7 is the last year of Primary and the kids leave at 12 years old

    Year 12 is the last year at secondary, if they don't opt out early, which i think takes them to 17 years old when they leave.

    to the OP

    She would be doing an extra year at school at least.......... but this is not a bad thing, because she should leave with Aussie qualifications by then, which will help her on her way through tafe and/or uni.

     

    That may not be the answer she wants to hear, but i think it's the one she would get

    my daughter is 16 and in year 11, and part/time tafe/college ao she'll stay in scholl until she's 17/18 they tend to be in school bit longer here which we think is better.xx

    My daughter is 15 - 16 in September - and currently in Year 10. They can leave after Year 10 but it's not very common!! Mostly they do up to Year 11 or Year 12.

    Hi again

    Also, I think the compulsory school leaving age in SA is 17 y.o (16y.o in UK). So from what you've said your daughter will be in YR10 when she starts in June'10 and will finish Yr10 (UK Yr11)in Dec. and probably have one more year to go. They also have a vocational scheme in place, called VET, where young people who don't want to continue academic studies, organise a work placement. I hope this is right! We hope to follow you out to Adelaide June'10. Hope you got the PM I resent.

    Best wishes Linda

    I also reckon school is a good place to start off, but if she really can't face it then she might be able to get an apprenticeship.

     

    Kids can leave school at 15 if they have an apprenticeship so she can relax, enjoy trying school in the knowledge that the school can try to place her if she has a particular interest / skill / hates school that much lol!

     

    Saying that, it never hurts to have your SACE, particularly as some employers demand that as a mininum qualification.
