    • After a long 2 years of planning, the dream came true and we landed at Perth airport on 7th September, tired and excited. We were fortunate enough to stay with friends for the first 4 days before moving into a holiday let for 10 days.  The last 10 days have been manic (and expensive) but I finally feel we are getting there and settling in already. So here's what we have done in the last 10 days: Bought a car, enrolled children into school, medicare and Centrelink visit complete, GP sorted, kids started althletics and enrolled at hockey club, found a rental for the next 12 months (slightly above budget but its lovely and has a pool so kids happy!), bought furniture for new rental, sorted broadband and insurance, DH had successful job interview....and on top of this have managed trips to the beach, an afternoon in Kings Park, and a visit to Perth city.  So far, so good..... I still have an issue with my nursing registration but that seems an ongoing saga! Overall, we are all feeling settled.   I cannot stress how helpful and friendly people are here.  Nothing seems a problem and everyone we have met has offered advice or contact numbers. Onwards and upwards.....
    • Thanks for the response. Much appreciated.  we are still looking out for the right place to live. thanks. 
    • Hi, you need to prove that you live in the catchment area, so tenancy agreement and 2 proofs, eg utilities. Passports and visas for parents and children stamped with date of entry to Australia, immunisation records. You can enrol at any time during the school term.
    • It won't matter arriving mid term if you wanted your child to commence the last few weeks of school.   It's awhile since we had to enrol, but we needed proof of address and also immunisation records.
