have you found a long term rental ? as you may need a lease agreement or a power bill in your name to show you are in the catchment area , some schools require this others dont .

We have rented a house for a month, but the landlady, an ex-pat has given us a lease agreement which she said would help & we opened a bank account today. We are living just outside Joondalup, in Heathridge. Only arrived last thursday but feelng very overwhelmed at the moment.

How many kids and what ages. I live just across in Connolly and it has a very good Primary school. Depending on the age we can take out of boundary. Few schools to choose from in Heathridge. Heathridge PS, Poseiden PS and Eddystone depending on where you live. Again depending on address the high schools are Ocean Reef SHS and Belridge SHS. I work in a primary school office so any questions I am happy to help. Feel free to PM if you need to.

Hi Carol As you know I will be heading out to Perth at the end of August and will be looking for a school for my son Kian aged 7. Again we are not sure of the suburb we want to be in until we get out there. Would you be happy for me to contact you regarding schools or anything we can pick your brains about please? Many thanks Debbie x
