Wondering if there are any mums here who have had kids change primRy schools on more than 1 occasion, possibly due to spousal work relocation or even professional sports (changing teams/moving cities) etc...
This is a bit long winded....sorry
After 3 years in our adopted city it's almost time for me to head back to work (I have had a really long may leave) in our original city on the east coast.
Ds1 will move primary schools and ds2 will start a new kindy/preschool.
I don't want to go back but financially & perks-wise I cannot quit. Secondly although our kids have made wonderful friends, they want to move back to be close to grandma.
We love where we are now and we love the school that ds1 currently attends. It may actually be the happiest school in Australia!
Anyways, the thought has crossed my mind that what if the kids don't settle in well at their new school, miss their old friends and generally don't like it there...
I'm wondering how hard it would be to move them back across the country in 12 months time, back to the school where da is now (assuming they had room for both boys). The logistics of moving wouldn't be super hard as we have a furnished home here and DH is actually staying here after I leave with the kids, till he can find another job/misses us enough to move back to us.
Has anyone changed cities and schools more than once? How do your kids cope?
