She who must be obeyed has spoken......
It look like, after much discussion, Dunedin is where we are focusing on.
Can anyone advise on the best schools (secondary) maybe co-ed, but if i had my way 'Girls only' i need to make contact with them and get some feed back. They of course will give me a load of old flannel, so someone who REALLY knows what's what will help hugely
Many thanks in anticipation
Steve

There is a database of schools with detailed reports on all. Ithink you can find it be searching on the Dept of Education website. In NZ schools get rated into Deciles, which reflect the socio economic background of the zoning it is in. I think 10 is the most affluent and 1 the least. Could start wioth a google on school deciles in NZ or something like that.

The database of reports, if you find it , gives quite a bit of detail, ive seen it b4 but cant remember where it is at and dont really want to look for it again. Nice little project for prospective immigrants though......

Check under MOE site- www.minedu.govt.nz and then look for ERO reports (Ed Review Office). Like UK OFSTED reports- gives a lot of good info. can serahc by city or name. Good luck.

Hi Stefe and Serena

I have asked my cousin about area's and schooling in Dunedin but just to let you know that she is leaving NZ tomorrow for a triop back to the UK and Europe. I will be seeing her in May but it may be too late for you then, can't remember what your plans were. She has proised to catch up with me either by email or phone when she arrives. I also have contacted another Kiwi contact in Dunedin and will let you know when they reply.

Good luck

I would like to say that we have plenty of time, but I found out that EOI was selected on the 13th and i have just heard today that it was successfull, that's 7 days it all seems very quick, maybe things will start to slow down. so please have a chat your cousin and any friends. i would welcome any advice
many thanks again
Steve
