|Hi, We are a British family of 6 getting ready to emmigrate to Perth, we have got our visas through and are now having mad panics about getting everything sorted...man this moving is stressful, we've done lots of research re suburbs and think the areas of Tapping,hocking and Wanneroo are the areas we want to be heading but if anyone has any insight on the best Primary schools of the 3 or suburb facilities eg shops etc that would be great, theres so much to take in at the moment re areas, what to ship,jobs,schools, houses...think my brain is having information overload. quite scary now the visas here lots to get sorted, does anyone have an oppinion on which is the best local primary school as this will be a deciding factor for us and do you have to be in the catchment area for each of those 3 primary schools ??, our children are 7,6,4 and 1, Thanks Emma & Paul|

|When are u looking at moving ???
we are in carramar across the road from Tapping
i think the school here is great and have heard great reports for Tapping as well
Carramar and Tapping are nicer than wanneroo which is older but has all our local facilities which inc a great chinese, dvd rental fuel station etc Carramar/Tapping are brilliant close to freeway close enough to the beach and i have had no issues alot of sports are run from Carramar oval inc it having a new club house next year. my kids have done well in Carramar school but education is not the same as the uk. Carramar also has a community centre where things such as karate , dance, immunisation clinics and school hol activities are run from. Carramar also has a great shopping complex with a gym newsagents great beautician and hairdresser and a woolworths for food shopping. I have worked in the city its a 25 minute drive no traffic and hour and 10 in rush hour traffic. Joondalup is also close enough 5 minutes with a great hospital inc paediatric emergency and paediatric ward very ideal with kids yellonga regional park is all around you its a great place for riding bikes and dogs. 5 min away is the drovers market for garden needs fish mongers deli and fruit and veg as well as a mini golf place. what im trying to put across is we are a family and Carramar meets all our needs good luck on your search||
