    That's a good way to look at it Sonja. In fact I read a google article like about this today saying the benefits moving mid year. Mainly being your new so people look out for you more etc. it almost makes me think we should aim for a mid year move

    Hey all. Just another question after my thread of a few weeks ago...

    DH and I are moving States next year around April. Initially we are going to live with my parents until we buy a house. Hopefully it won't take too long. We are thinking of buying about 45 mins drive from my parents but not really sure of the suburb. Initially I was going to put DS in a school in a suburb that we think we will buy in. But again we are not too sure and the driving him out and back every day for an unknown period of time is not ideal. So now we are thinking of puttin him in a local school until we move. That means 3 schools in 1 year for my 6year old. Is this terrible? How can I make it easier for him? I feel really terrible about this but I don't see any option. We may end up living with my parents for 3 months then buying in a suburb 20 mins away from where the thought to settle so I don't see any option. Would this be expecting to much from him?

    personally, If you are not moving until April, I would be doing some careful investigating (internet and getting your parents to check out locations) of the applicable suburbs and schools - and decide on a school within that area - and just drive the distance for the first few months.

    You have plenty of time to have a 'look around' and decide on a basic area ... and therefore a school that wont be too far away.

    *** actually .. having thought about it, if you are looking at public schools you may not have a choice but to put him in the school that your parents are in the zone for ... and move him when you move.

    dunno.

    I am not much help really

    Thanks anyway. It's a tough one. And yes it will be a public school so we may not have a choice. I wish this was easier for him. At the end of the day it will be but the transition will be hard.
