Re: What punishment would you expect from a school?

I would have called the police when it was clear the school wasn't going to do much. The boys are 13, it was assault. Maybe the parents will be a little less relaxed when they have the police on...

Re: Sydney Cost of Living?

Expect it to be eye wateringly expensive then you won't be shocked :D

Re: 16 year old has decided to stay behind

I wouldn't give him the option personally. You say that you truly believe that coming to Oz would be the best thing for his future - for another couple of years he is still the child and you are the...

Re: Qantas or Etihad?
