    When to move with 7 year old

    Couple of questions if I might... Thanks We're planning on moving to Perth but want to plan it round our daughters schooling. Those that have made the move, would you say its best to come in UK summer holidays or wait till xmas and start the Oz school year. How do you choose a school and apply especially if you want littlen to start school as soon as possible? Are there any websites out there that can give info on whether a school is good or bad? Back here we can check ofsted reports etc. Is there something similar for Perth? Thanks for your help

    The Pound vs Australian dollar

    Hi John, We're moving back to the UK in August and keeping an eye on the currency market. What would your advice be in terms of transferring the money back to the UK. Im kind of hoping that the dollar strengthens or the pound weakens but neither look likely to me?

    Buying uk size double duvet in oz

  6. If I get a job within a company that pay by what is called BACS in the UK. THey do my tax etc. Someone (aussie) just said that I would need to do a tax return and see if I get a rebate at the end of the next tax year. I would have thought that with the company paying the tax, it would equal out over the year.

    Whats it like? Does it compare to clarkson, quinns, butler, merriwa? We really like the trinity "estate" but as its so new, I would imagine that you may not be able to compare it to that, so comparing to the above would make it clearer for me. Thanks
  13. Bekki, wish you were doing it a week or two later, we arrive on the 30th so will miss your bbq planned for the saturday. keep us in mind if you do another.
