  2. Hi all, I am currently considering moving to Perth late 2022 (all being well with the borders). I have just gained my ACA qualification and am looking for some advise on a few things. If anyone could help I’d appreciate it. 1. Visa - I am unsure whether to go out there on a working holiday visa and try and get a job on the hopes of getting sponsored by an employer within the year. Or I could start the process of applying for a skilled worker visa 189, however from what I’ve learned online this seems to be a timely process and I may not even get invited to apply. 2. Jobs - I currently have 5 years experience working in practice (1 year doing accounting technicians, 4 years doing chartered accountants exams), but have just recently gained my qualifications. I was planning on getting my qualifications assessed and transferred to chartered accountants Australia and maybe doing some CPD courses in the Australian tax system before I move. Would this help my chances in getting a job? Would my lack of post qualification experience affect me? If I was to take a lower level job on a working holiday visa (Assistance accountant/accounts receivable/payable) to gain experience in the country would this help with the possibility of maybe applying for the skilled worker visa while I am in the country? Thank you in advance for advice given, really appreciate it. Aine

    School recommendation Perth SOR

    We are currently overseas and would be moving to Perth early next year. We are are looking for rentals around Jandakot/piara waters. I have a 5 year old who would be attending year 1 next year, who is handful and strong willed, is also a bit delayed in language since we are bilingual. Please share your recommendation for public/primary schools of smaller size. Since I m new to Australian education system, I m unaware if there are teacher assistants in all the classrooms. We have been under lockdown for 18 months now and my child has never attended school. I have been thinking my child would settle well with a little one on one attention in the beginning.

  6. In all pro-vaccination arguments (whether optional or forceful) the pro vaxxers make a distinction about those people who can't due to health reason, so that's no argument. Besides that, carry on with the discussion
  7. How condescending of you to assume my understanding of lockdowns. I am well aware of why they happen. I have obeyed the rules each time to do my bit to keep everyone safe, so please read my comments again with that in mind. I just stated what is happening on the ground here in answer to the question posed by the poster. At no time did I say that I opposed vaccination. However, there are people who for health reasons cannot be vaccinated, and to deny them medical care of any description as you stated, is totally wrong and selfish, let alone your offensive comment about removing "the stupid from the gene pool". There are a lot of people in Australia who are vaccine hesitant because of the bad press about Astrazenica, and I am sure that is partly because we have fared much better here than other countries, and they either don't see the need for it, or are perhaps scared of the new technology involved in the making the these MRNA vaccines. I blame the government for a large part in this as the whole rollout of the vaccine has been a shambles in organisation and with nowhere enough vaccine available for those who want it. The constant media and government push is wearing very thin, and if you know anything of peoples attitudes, when being pushed into something, they dig their feet in.
  8. I am not certain you understand why lockdowns happen. It is to protect health services from being overwhelmed. Simple as that. Look what happens if you don't, which is what some US states are currently doing. Hospitals are full of covid patients. Every ICU is full and 68 major hospitals are about to run out of oxygen. The result of that is that people are dying from the other things that normally need hospital care as the beds are all full and no space to treat them. As for vaccination. Yes, everyone has a right to chose. But, along with any right comes responsibility and the impact on other people's right. So, personally I would support a person not getting a vaccine on the condition they sign away their right to medical care of any description. Let Darwin manage it and remove the stupid from the gene pool.
  9. I have family in Victoria and Queensland (that I haven't seen for 20 months), and I can tell you it isn't too good over there at the moment. The "rules" seem to change daily, the fines are ludicrous, and the people are beginning to get mightily cheesed off. I think that one of the issues is that each state premier has a different slant on how to deal with it, and do so according to their ego and power play,. Last weekend there were Freedom Rallies in every capital city around Australia. All were well attended and peaceful, with the exception of NSW and Victoria. NSW stopped all transport into the city and flooded Sydney with police and fining everyone for being out in public. Victorian police rocked up part way through the rally dressed in full riot gear and firing rubber bullets and tear gas! There is plenty of video evidence on the internet to show that the Melbourne Rally was peaceful until the police appeared, and the whole situation is just inflaming the general population. Behind a lot of this is the coercion to bring in mandatory vaccination and vaccine passports to even leave your own state to travel within Australia. Many people are against forced vaccination believing "my body, my choice" and I totally agree with that as I think we should have the final say over what we do to our bodies, as per our Constitution, but I think the government have gone about the whole thing too forcefully and with bad planning, so there are lots of rumblings of discontent among the population. WA so far has been lucky that we haven't been inundated with cases, but it is only a matter of time, and like very many other people around the world, I think we just have to learn to live with it. What scares me most though is that the police in Victoria would turn on a peaceful rally with such a show of force..... not sure where that will end, but I don't think it will be good for any of us.

    In Willetton just off Rostrata Avenue. There is a small shopping centre next to a medical centre/pharmacy. Local family own it and it is good for brekkie, lunch and just coffee and cake. Small place, but great food and atmosphere. Have you been to Ruby's Bakehouse on Beasley Ave in Leeming? That is good too for brekkie, lunch etc. they also have an outside area under cover and allow dogs.

    Great isn't it. Apart from the scenery being amazing, it really brings home a lot of the issues that are in outback Australia with all the issues of races and cultures, and how they are as opposed to how they could be, if only people weren't so bigoted.

    Are you describing weather in Perth or where you live now? Today was the first sunny and warmer day in nearly 2 months. We've copped almost a month of rain every single day, with a 26 record and only 10mm short of all time record (around 270mm in a month).

    Just read a book called past caring by Robert Goddard. God it was awful. So predictable. Unlikable narrator who takes months to work things out when they are so obvious. Ridiculous plot. Don't waste your time.

    I am always on the lookout for a good cafe for brekkie, brunch, lunch, and recently I have been taken to 2 establishments in the southern suburbs. The Roastery in Canning Vale roasts and sells coffee beans, and their coffee (takeout and dine in) is yum. The cafe menu is varied, and the daily specials are always a bit different. It is a warehouse feel with cement floors and no matching furniture, and a great place for a brunch or lunch. 6 Willows Cafe in Willetton. They are a small local business that cater to the breakfast and lunch crowd, and have amazing cakes for morning tea. Their menu is small, but there are daily specials that are always a bit different. Both of these businesses are family owned and run, and I like to support them because of that.
