    Default Perth primary schools

    We are relocating to Perth from Qld at the end of April.
    I have a daughter who has just started prep.

    I noticed in a few of the Perth posts that people had mentioned schools where over flowing?

    Can anyone suggest area that have nice schools??

    We don't have any particular area in mind at the moment. As we don't know Perth at all.

    Can you give us a bit more info?
    Will price be a major factor?
    Are you beach people?

    Inner city people?

    Do you like old style renovated houses or nrwer.

    Do you prefer north or south?

    What things do you like to get up to on the weekends?

    In Perth, children need to attend the school that they are in the zone for. Pre primary is compulsory so they attend everyday and places have to be made for them.

    I think many people would have their own opinions on which schools are nice, so may not be the best indicator. You might need to think of which areas you can afford to live.

    Are you moving for work? Family? If so where is it/them?

    Perth is a fairly spread out area. Generally "Perth" is considered anywhere with in a 200 km radius.

    Will price be a major factor? For schools we would prefer public. Rent we can only afford $400max till after we are settled etc.

    Are you beach people? Very much beach people

    Inner city people? Not city people - but don't want really want to be more then an hour away from the city

    Do you like old style renovated houses or nrwer.

    If prefer a newer house. We currently live in an old house and I'd like a kitchen that isn't tiny

    Do you prefer north or south?

    At the moment we are looking more north, only because the only person we know over there is near joondalup
    And they said its nice. Plus there is a good life and I can transfer my gym membership.

    What things do you like to get up to on the weekends? We usually visit family and friends.. So that won't be happening hahah
    Usually go to the beach or park. We like to get out of the house.

    We area moving because of my partners work. At the moment he is FIFO but will be where he is for at least another 3 years, so will relocate to save paying for flights/ so he doesn't miss out on the kids so much.

    He will still be FIFO though. So no particular area.

    It's very daunting. I've never even been to Perth

    Your $400pw budget is going to seriously limit your areas. Im not sure about the rest of Australia but houses are crazy expensive over here.

    I was thinking the same thing. Maybe south like Rockingham/Mandurah would be more desirable than some of the other areas. Joondalup isn't too bad though

    Doubt that would be right either. I live near Rockingham and only pay less than $400 cos the home is owned by a family member. Rockingham does have a dodgy rep but just near it (Bertram, Wellard, Parmelia, Baldivis) are all nice areas but I dont think $400pw is going to cut it unfortunately. Worth a look though.

    I think with that budget you are looking more at Langford, Gosnells etc. Even Maddington houses are more than $400 these days.

    Im not sure about NoR at all.
