    Hi

     

    We are British expats living in China and have lived her for 4 years. We have just been told we are getting moved to Adelaide, and we are very excited about it.:jiggy:

    We have a 14 yr old Girl who currently studies at an International school and is doing the IB program. We are hoping to get her into an IB program in Adelaide but there doesn't seem to be that many.. we are still unsure of where we will live but my hubby's office will be in Wingfield.

     

    We hope to do a Reccie visit very soon, cause my head is hurting going through all these websites for info:wacko:

    If anyone has any advice about moving to Adelaide i would be most grateful.

     

    Cheers

    Schools that have IB programmes are.....

     

    Private schools

    Annesley College, Wayville -Girls only primary and middle years programme at the mo

    Concordia College, Highgate - coed Lutheran

    Immanael College, Novar Gardens- coed Lutheran

    Mercedes College, Springfield - coed Catholic

    Pedare Christian College, Golden Grove - coed

    Pembroke School, Kensington Gdns- coed

    St Michael's College, Beverley - coed catholic

    Walford Anglican School for Girls, Unley - girls

    Woodcroft College, Morphett Vale - coed

     

    State Schools

    Blackwood High School, Eden Hills

    Glenunga International High School, Glenunga

    Mount Barker High School, Mount Barker

    Norwood Morialta High School, Middle Campus ( only middle years programme )

    Salisbury High School, Salisbury North

    Underdale High School, Underdale

     

    If you are going to chose a private school, it doesn't really matter where you live and most schools run school buses to most parts of Adelaide. If you are going to choose a state high school then you usually need to live within the zone, particularly the popular ones. However the fact you wish your daughter to continue with IB can swing this to approval to enrol in an out of Zone school. Glenunga High is also an international school although state and attracts a lot of students from Asia.

     

    Adelaide offers a good lifestyle for a family, is easy to get around and Melbourne and Sydney are only 1 to 2 hours away by plane, for trips away.

     

    Wingfield is more noticable for its rubbish dump , factories and warehouses, not really a residential area. So dont worry about living there.
