    Hi Ellie,

     

    I am a bit older than you, and finished high school last year, but maybe I can offer some advice?

     

    Brighton is a nice school. I think if you want to make some friends you should consider joining a co-curricular group. Brighton should be very good for that! I went to one of the other specialist music schools, and Brighton were our biggest rival :P - They have a fantastic music program - so if you play an instrument, or even if you don't yet!, there are lots of musical activities to get into. They are also pretty good with sports and have plenty of co-curricular sports to get involved with.

     

    You might find the actual school work a bit easy. We are definitely behind Europe when it comes to the curriculum standards.

     

    Do you know which year level you will be going into when you arrive? If you are arriving this year you will probably be put into year nine.

    Hi Ellie

     

    We emigrated about 4 years ago. We're also from Cheshire. We started off in Brighton but now live in Seacliff. I have two daughters - 16 and 14 (15 in June) who go to Brighton Secondary School. The younger one is in year 10. They both enjoy school and have good friends there. I'll ask them to get in touch with you on here - they can advise you better re school/friends etc.

    Hi Ellie, my daughter goes to Brighton secondary school and is 17 and now in year 11. We moved here when she was 11. The Brighton Secondary school is zoned, which means you need to live in a particular area to get in unless you apply for a special interest program (they have Volleyball and Music). Have a look on the web site if you want some more info www.brightonss.sa.edu.au.

    We love the area especially the beach, hope that helps. Good luck with the move. Susan (my daughter) is happy to talk to you about school and moving if you want to.

        Hi,
        I'm a 29 year old male from Leicester, and I am emigrating to Adelaide in October this year.
        I was just wondering if anyone knew of any Football (soccer) Supporters Clubs in the Adelaide area. In particular any Leicester City supporters?
        My girlfriend and I are moving over and won't really know anybody else in the city, so thought it might be a good idea to see if there any supporters over there.
        Even if you don't happen to support Leicester City, would still be good to meet people who actually like watching proper football and not AFL! (not that there's anything wrong with AFL but I'll be having withdrawal symptoms if I don't watch any football....)
        Any advice or pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
        If you don't like football but would still be interested in meeting up to socialise and make friends, drop us a PM.
        Cheers
        Steve
