    Thanks for all your help @Mod-Degrassi really appreciate it. Have spoken to DH and he really likes anywhere closer into newcastle.

    All the best for school hunting for next year. It's the toughest thing, especially when you are dealing with SN. In Adelaide our daughter was turned away from a school for having diabetes and the school she has had absolutely no interest in her disease hence why I'm so fussy about schooling for her now.
    Hope you find the perfect fit!

    Eta: I grew up in that area, too.

    Just thought I would let you all know, we've narrowed it down to the Adamstown or Fern Bay Area. Looked at all the areas around Thornton, Medowie, the bay and maitland but decided we would prefer to be closer to the local children's hospital. Not that we've needed it but if anything went wrong with DD1's diabetes Whilst she was at school, I know I would feel more at ease knowing she could get treated faster.
    The areas around them also have a defence support person at the school which I think my girls need, they've had it at their current school which has helped with DH'a deployments etc.

    So thank you for all your help, really appreciate it 😀

    If you decide to move into the Adamstown area and need any advice just let me know (I live close by).

    Awesome, thanks Degrassi 😀 I rang 2 schools in the area and they were brilliant. So accommodating and happy to have the girls.
    I'm looking forward to the move! Have had enough of SA!
