The big one has gone to Smithfield State High School as it is the closest to us, we also choose it for No. 2, who moves up in January as it has a Gifted and Talented program which he needs. The big one is also looking to do a school based apprenticeship at the moment, which we think is a bonus as it means he can go to school as well as learn a trade while he is still there.

Push bikes can be really cheap here it all depends on what you want, we have seen bikes for as little as $87.00 for a basic mens or womans mountain bike, at K-Mart. We have found the prices shoot up though if you go to a bike shop. I think the bikes for the younger ones were about $120.00. It is a case of watching for when they have the offers on. We were lucky as OH boss gave us some bikes to get us started so we haven't had to buy any yet.

Sorry to ask, but we have been offline for a while, do you know when you will be getting here yet?

I have chatted to Sophjam and know when she is arriving, so it will be good to know when you are getting here too. I have coffee and cakes to arrange
We are just waiting for the elusive yes or no and then we shall book, after tying yo a few loose ends was hoping to be Feb but will be definately no later than April later than we had wanted but we were halted in our tracks during meds hubby had to go for some heart scans and extra tests but he has been given the all clear now but it has left us five weeks behind schedule.

Will keep you up todate dont want them cakes to go off.

Thanks for the other info think I will risk getting bikes over there.

Have heard good things about Smithfield school so definately an option for us.

Speak soon

Kaye x

Have you looked at options to get PR sooner than that - you don't have to wait the 2 years in many instances.
Your wife and any children you have will get PR at the same time if you ensure they are included on the application.

It means any future children you have born in Australia (after PR) will be Australian citizens by birth.
