We mentioned this at her visa Medical and the Doctor didn't seem bothered by this. The question is, will this in any way affect her registration in Public schooling ?. He's settled in very well - and already built up a large group of friends (most of whom seem to descend on us at the week-end)We had our first parents evening last week.However, if they are legal obliged to accept children within the catchment this would reduce the risk slightly of renting a house within the catchment. This is causing us some difficulty as we could not commit to a rental property until the school confirms that the girls can enrol.You mentioned that Schools are obliged to take children within the catchment area.Yes, we will be arriving on a 457 sponsered visa and I am aware of the fees payment. You have to pay temp visa school fees to the temporary visa unit before you can officially enrol in a school (although, again, the actual schools don't appear to be too worried if the paperwork hasn't caught up before term starts)So far so good. We mentioned this at her visa Medical and the Doctor didn't seem bothered by this.We are in QLD, but I think it is the same rules on this. Where you live appears to be optional, although from a logistical perspective, travel times can get extended significantly during school run times.They probably just ask, so that they can be geered up to handle any special needs.To be honest, this has been the most frustrating part of the move as it would appear that you can do very little until you actually arrive in Australia.One extra step, if like us you come on a temp visa.e.We were told that extra teachers are brought in on day 1 of a new term, if enrolments exceed the expected figure. We'd held fire on deciding where to live, in case there was an issue with catchment areas. It would appear most of the state (public) schools in Sydney have been losing pupils to the private sector and appear pleased when someone wants to enrol.

I don't know how old your daughter is, or where you're looking to live, but I did a fair amount of background research on high schools and catchment areas in the North Sydney/Northern beaches area which you're welcome to. Apart from that she is fine and attends normal schooling in Scotland where she is doing well.They probably just ask, so that they can be geered up to handle any special needs. We do stretching exercises and she wears a splint which corrects the problem. All the teachers were very positive and enthusiatic.Originally posted by ABCDiamond I doubt it very much.The teachers are a little more forthright in their comments.

Is this the case if the school is full ?. she walks on her tip toes.school first then house.In truth, we needn't have worried.

We're up on the Northern Beaches and my son's at Pittwater High.We are suffering the same confusion as yourselves. Apart from that she is fine and attends normal schooling in Scotland where she is doing well.Do you have any advice on this ?. We are keen to get the girls into schooling as soon as possible to avoid the possibility of an extended holiday feeling creeping in, although the easter break will delay this slightly.I intend phoning the various schools tonight to hopefully arrange interviews etc and will mention your point to them.Can you contact the schools direct to confirm this applies with them ?We moved to Sydney in Jan in time for the new school year.However, if they are legal obliged to accept children within the catchment this would reduce the risk slightly of renting a house within the catchment. If they think things aren't happening as they want, they will let us and the kids know, which I find refreshing.

You just need to get the school principal to OK the enrolment. They regularly set and mark homework - and the academic standards appear very similar to the UK.If you want any further info, drop me a private mail.We were told that extra teachers are brought in on day 1 of a new term, if enrolments exceed the expected figure.it is driving us mad !.State schools are legally obliged to take any child resident in their area. I have downloaded the Goverment forms which seem straight forward although there is a question regarding any 'physical / health condition' to be identified.Can you contact the schools direct to confirm this applies with them ?I have emailed the schools in the areas we are looking at with the same response 'talk to us when you hace secured a house within the catchment area'.e.Do you have any advice on this ?.
