    Henley high is a good school, they are over the capacity so you will have to live in the catchment area when you enrol him. Costs 900 dollars a year and an extra 250 if you want him or get him on a sports program. Uniform is expensive so look at the uniform online and try and get some uniform in uk coz its cheaper.how old is your son/daughter

    Hi I just can't believe what migrants have to through today to come to live in Adelaide South Australia I came out from Harrow Weald Middlesex in 1961 after doing the paper work at Australia house in the strand London & medicals was on broad ship two weeks later & arrived 24 days later it took a bit of settling down & had a two year no-return contract or pay back fares out to Australian Government but have never wanted too go back for more than a holidays but like life any where had some ups & downs ! #1 son born in London #2 son born in Perth West Australia #'s 3 & 4 sons born here in Adelaide now have 16 great-grandchildren & 7 great-grandchildren as you may imagine I was only 19 years old when I came here & married too young so after 22 years was divorced & remarried to a aussie woman with 3 boys also in 1965 I sponsored my widow mother & brother here & again I sponsored my divorced sister & her 4 children out so all close family are here with helps one settled down plus it was only 10 pound per adult person best money I ever spent good luck to all new comers ! I have watched Adelaide & suburbs grow when I first came here apart from Elizabeth there were no suburbs pass Gepps Cross & O'Halloran Hill.

    Make sure you check out Joe's Kiosk for breakfast, it's on the beachfront at Henley a little away from the square. Joe s quite a character, but you will get a warm welcome and a good coffee. Happy settling in, hope to be there in October but STILL WAITING for my partner's visa
