Re: Teaching opportunities

Re: Teaching opportunities

Re: Teaching opportunities

I live in BC and there is a huge shortage of teachers where I am (East Kootenays - Elkford, Sparwood, Fernie). We have some teachers on letters of permission here who have undergrad degrees but not...

Re: Where to find updates on Flight Caps

Re: Child (age 17) returning for Uni

Thank you! I had a look around and I'm feeling a lot better. There seem to be lots of affordable places and a bunch were even available on a shorter term as well.

Re: Child (age 17) returning for Uni

From all of my research, she will be paying domestic fees provided she gets into a CSP (commonwealth-supported place). It sounds like all (or most) offers for undergraduate degrees are for...

Hi everyone,

I was hoping to open a new Westpac bank account from overseas. This is normally an option and you could open one and deposit money and activate it on arrival. Due to covid they have...

Re: How are you spending NYE?

I’m a bit late to the party but I had a very boring start to the new year. Around mid December I was in an ice hockey tournament and broke both Tibia and Fibia and am now sporting a nice titanium rod...

Re: Clippy, etc 2006 applicants

We applied in 2006 and moved to Brisbane area in 2007. We came back to Canada in 2010 to be near family while the kids were little. It turns out that was a good decision as we both lost our dads...

Re: University Questions - OZ citizenship but in Canada now

Yes, the job situation will be a factor when the time comes. I imagine we would wait until the mining industry is on the upswing again and is dying for engineers. Until then we are in no rush and...

Hey there everyone! I've been away for ages as well. Once we moved back to Canada in 2010 I gradually stopped visiting as I got busy with work, kids sports and life in general. I've been poking...

Re: University Questions - OZ citizenship but in Canada now

That's a fair question. I'm equally happy in both countries and I'd like to go back someday but don't have a date in mind as of yet. We just relocated across Canada to BC about a year ago and just...
