Re: Schools and more

Have you thought about giving it another go. Maybe moving to Westmorland or something. The car thing would have been a blow but that can happen anywhere.

Re: Schools and more

I will only talk about the south of the city as this is where we live. Nice areas where you will get a house for around $250,000 to $350,000 include Somerfield, Halswell, Beckenham, Lower Cashmere,...

Re: UK teacher looking to relocate to NZ with wife and 2 kids

Re: We probably won't go back to live in NZ
