    Child wanting to go to University in England

    My friends daughter is starting a law degree in the UK in September. They visited 6 universities and not one was willing to treat them as domestic fee paying.

    also Alkimos is a million miles from anywhere. South of Burns Beach Rd is my rule. Not that areas north of that are awful just that the increased travel time to decent facilities for me is prohibitive.

    Duncraig Senior high school

    Duncraig better than ORSHS in terms of academics from the experience of friends and the ATAR results. You get the same teenage issues but from what I am led to believe they are dealt with better at Duncraig.
  6. I'm the same, certified copies of mine and my daughters birth certs, no problems at all.

    Should add to that excellent info is that they don't have to stay till year 12. They can leave at the end of year 10 if they go to TAFE (college) or have some sort of full time job/apprenticeship.

    Daughters education

    Depends when her birthday is as to what year she goes in to. My daughter is also 15 and goes in to year 10 this year 2018. Year 11 here would be born between 1st July 2001 and 30th June 2002, Year 10 in 2018 would be 1st July 2002 and 30th June 2003. Ali has given you good information with regards course structure for 11/12. However, entry to the subjects is usually granted based on performance in year 10 so I would say doing the exams in the UK won't do your daughter any harm. Does she know what she wants to do? Does she want to go down a Uni path or more of a vocational/work path?

    First Christmas in Oz what to do?

    I live in Connolly and if you need any help or info just message. My kids both went to Connolly and I used to work there and volunteer in the canteen and ran the uniform shop for a number of years. It's a lovely school with fantastic staff and families. You have picked a great suburb to live in. Have a great Christmas.
  13. Where is he at school and what are his interests?

    Car Insurance

    After 12 years here I have recently shifted from Commonwealth for home and Allianz for car and taken out policies with RAC. Have had 1 contents claim and the price and process has been second to none. Would thoroughly recommend.
