  1. Job demand in Perth

    Go for it! You never know 😀
  2. Two years in and the Unthinkable happened!!

    So sorry to read you’ve gone through this at the start of your new life here, must have been devaststing especially with being so far from home. Glad you’ve got great neighbours, wishing your wife a speedy and full recovery. Glad you’re still positive about the lifestyle and everything that life has to offer here. We wouldn’t be without the private healthcare, I’ve had 4 wisdom teeth out and hubby has had an op. All seen extremely quickly and most of the fees paid for, and 3 of us have had new glasses. I know we pay monthly for the cover but it is giving us peace of mind that we’re covered and can be seen quickly if required. Best wishes to you and your family.
  3. Job demand in Perth

    Working for a mining company doesn’t necessarily mean working at the mines themselves. BHP and Rio Tinto Both have large offices in the city and bhp have recently a advertised for work management planners at the centre of excellence in Perth. This is how hubby got his first job, and he said that they welcomed applications, and had people starting there from all different backgrounds, as long as you pass the psychometric tests and the video interviews etc, are good with computers and can organise. May be worth a look. Best of luck
  4. Subjects for year 10

    Hi, I’m well thanks, how are you? Yes, still at WSHS, eldest is in yr 10 and youngest now in yr 7 and having her first NAPLAN soon. I’ve had a quick look online and have found the following link https://www.subjectcoach.com/blog/past-years-naplan-test-papers-with-answers/ If you google naplan past papers, you will find more. The stationery shops such as officeworks will have practice paper books as well to help to prepare, you will be able to look for these online too. Hope this helps. Jen
  5. Transferring visa to new passport

    That’s good, just renewed 2 child passports, need to transfer the visas, sounds quite straightforward.

    Hi, we're in Willetton just next door! Actually researching canning vale, Harrisdale and Southern river to move to in a couple of years time.

  9. It was just ourselves and the other family from this site this time. The other family had invited another couple who came along, and it was nice to meet them. It was lovely to have a picnic and a chat as the sun went down. Would have been good to meet more people though 🙂. Thanks for asking 😀 Jen x

    Hi all, I’ve done a seperate new topic post about this but wanted to make sure that no one missed it so posted it here as well.

  13. Finding your Feet - Movie

    I agree, lovely scenes of a cosy Christmas and the lights in London warmed the soul.
  14. One month in!!

    Hi, what a lovely post. So glad to hear that things have gone smoothly and you are all happy. Reaching out to the P&C was a great idea. If you want to make friends and get involved through volunteering, the P&C is a great place to start. I went along to the meetings, got involved in discos and volunteering in the school canteen and helping out in classes, and it was great for giving me a sense of purpose, meeting people and getting out of the house. It has even led to a job in the school office! I didn’t hit a low till about 7/8 months that lasted for a few weeks, but you get through it the best way you can. It soon passed and things are great. Have you both got jobs? Well done on such a positive start, enjoy the ride 😀 Jen x
  15. Meet new friends

    Unfortunately I’m unavailable now in the week due to working full time until middle of May, and our weekends are pretty full. Would be great if a few of you took the plunge to meet up, I’ve done it several times and made some very good friends, it’s a bit unnerving at first but very worthwhile. I’m off in the Easter hols so we could arrange something for then...
