hi there, me and my wife are hopefully moving over to australia next year in march 2011 and would like to move to secret harbour or anywhere nice that has a good school for our three children. we would be greatfull for any information of how much money we need to bring with us, to get started. we would like a house that has four bedrooms and a nice garden. I have a contact for work over there so don't think looking for a job would be much of a problem. if anyone could help us it would be great. many thanks wez,jane,bethany,billy,jessica.

Hello all, there is a new website for schools here now that can give you a good view of how schools are performing, (state and private) so maybe have a look for yourself and see what you think. The address is ' ' and you can type in the area you are looking at and view schools in the suburb and surrounding suburbs. Hope this can help, Charlie.

Wez Nothing wrong with S Harbour primary, loveley location, if your ambitious about education results though consider private. Friends of mine have older kids in Comet Bay high school- not good apparently.Secret Harbour is small, no obvious bricklaying work,you would have to travel, then again most people do in W.A. Seems the old adage of who you know not what you know with regards to jobs. No expert on brickies work though i'm afraid ,though building seems on the upside again, especially with school refurbs.
