  1. Hi. I am new to this forum. We are thinking of moving to the Mornington/Mount Martha/Mount Eliza area. We are living in the Yarra Valley at the moment. We are out here just over a year. We have 3 children, aged 6,8 and 10. My eldest daughter will be starting High School in a year and a half so we want to move to a good area with good state primary and High Schools and a safe place to live with children. Any information on what these areas are like to live in, what the schools are like, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  2. Hi, We are are on our countdown for our move to Mornington before the end of this school term/end of year. We are hoping to start our children in primary school before the end of term so that it is not totally new to them, at the start of next year. We are looking at either Bentons or Osborne primary schools. We are now starting to look at rentals in the Mornington area, and will go there again this Saturday to view a few places that are open for viewing. We have spent nearly every weekend heading to the Mornington area to get a feel for it and are very excited about the move. While we know the area around the main street and the beach we probably dont know enough about what areas are good for renting in, what the schools are like, what areas to avoid for families. If anyone has any inside information on areas to rent/good schools or any information at all on Mornington we would be delighted to hear from you. Our oldest daughter will be in Grade 6 next year so we have to look at High Schools too. Any information, no matter how small would be great, Thanks, Mariejo
  3. Hi, We moved to Australia 2 years ago and my eldest daughter moved into Grade 4. At the time I was considering Grade 3 or Grade 4 for her. We are now moving to a different area of Melbourne and my daughter is due to start in the new school in January. She is due to start in Grade 6 but I am considering her repeating Grade 5 in the new school as I feel she wouldnt be ready to start in High School in 12 months. She has just turned 11. In Europe she wouldnt be starting secondary school until September 2017 whereas here it would be January 2017. 9 months earlier is a long time at that age. Just wondering has anyone else done that? Or what age do most kids start High School here? Just thought with the change of school it might be a good idea to repeat a year, so she has 2 years in the new primary school before changing school again to High School. Any feedback would be great for anyone else who has moved to Australia and experienced this? Thanks.

  5. Hi. We are moving to Mornington soon, and just wondering does anyone have children in Bentons or Osborne primary schools and how are they? Or any other primary schools in Mornington? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    High Schools Mornington Peninsula

    Hi, we (family of 4, 2 boys aged 13 and 10) are moving to Melbourne in September as I have a job with Monash University at the Frankston campus. We've looked on the Victoria education website and can see that Frankston High School has been rated well, does anyone have first hand experience of the school? Are there any other high schools in the area that you would also recommend? I will be coming on a 457 visa and we've read that we may have to pay school fees does anyone know if this correct? Thanks in advance
  7. Myself and my partner are moving to Melbourne from the UK in September. We are now about to begin the teacher registration process - we are both experienced UK qualified teachers. I have a few questions about the VIT registration process: 1. Can all of the application be done online? Can the supporting documentation be sent online or does it need to be mailed by post? 2. Re. the certified copies of the required documentation - how recently do these documents need to have been certified (can I use the same certified documents I used for my visa application?)? 3. As a UK-qualified teacher, should I apply for the provisional or full registration? 4. As my credentials have already been assessed successfully by AITSL, should/can I submit the assessment certificate from AITSL as part of my application? 5. Once all the correct documentation has been submitted, roughly how long does the registration process take? If anyone has any good agencies/websites for teaching jobs etc to recommend, that'd also be v much appreciated. Thanks in advance for taking the time to respond :-)

    Melbourne University top in the country

    THE University of Melbourne is Australia's top tertiary institution in an international ranking by reputation. The university has come 43rd in the world in the second annual Times Higher Education world reputation rankings. That's two places higher than last year. It was closely followed by the Australian National University in the 44th spot. University of Melbourne vice-chancellor Glyn Davis says it is a tribute to the institution's teaching staff and researchers that it has managed to improve on last year's performance. The University of Sydney was ranked 50th in the world and the University of Queensland finished in the 71-80 bracket, where institutions were not sorted due to narrow differences. The rankings are based on a survey of more than 17,500 academics who are asked to nominate the best 15 institutions in their field of expertise. They complement the Times annual world university rankings. In those overall rankings, the University of Melbourne is 37th and the ANU 38th.
