    • Big movement in the GBP/AUD exchange rate this week. Reasons why? Reserve Bank of Australia suggested they would not raise rates for some time in Australia. North Korea/USA situation – tensions further raised creating risk off reaction which is negative for the Australian dollar. UK – positive borrowing figures, lowest since the financial crisis – helped the pound.
       
    • Hi Kelly, I'm in Leeming which is a neighbouring suburb to those you're interested in.  We stumbled on Leeming by chance - the kids settled in Leeming Primary School very quickly and we didn't want to uproot them again.  We love the area we're in, a great community feel.  My children both went to Leeming Primary and then onto Leeming HS.  My children are very chalk and cheese - one academic and one sporty.  LSH met both their needs - my daughter was in the academic extension programme and my son has been able to study, physical education, outdoor education and sports coaching.  
    • Our rules don't allow naming and shaming - although I totally sympathise with your experience and the behaviour of the agents.  People can contact you to find out the name of the company.  If they are MARA registered you can report them i'm sure.
    • Hi Dave I am so sorry to hear of your terrible experience. Is this agent based in Australia and MARA registered?  If not can your awful encounter be a word of warning to others, please use a MARA agent and yes there are certainly a few in the UK https://www.mara.gov.au/search-the-register-of-migration-agents/  At least you can be assured that the agent concerned is qualified, trained and has upto date knowledge of migration law. I am a Registered Migration Agent MARN 1173200 based in Perth.  Have you still got a 457 sponsor prepared to wait for you?  Are they are WA based company? Let me know if you need any assistance. You can always email me camilla@newlifedownunder.com.au
