We will be moving to Sydney next year. My husband has secured employment and we will be moving across from Johannesburg, South Africa to Sydney on a TSS Visa. We hope to get permanent residency next year via a 186 visa. We have two small daughters, who will be ages 6 and 4.
We believe that our eldest daughter will need to re-do a year (she is currently in Grade R (Kindergarden)) due to children starting school a year ahead of our children in SA. With this in mind, we believe our eldest daughter would need to start Kindy in January 2019 I think? She was born on 13 July 2012.
Currently she is at a private, all-girls, catholic school in Johannesburg. Where possible, I would like her to attend (in order of importance): a) an all-girls school environment and b) attend a catholic school.
Is this possible or will it be too difficult to get into a school like this due to waitlists? We realise these schools would come with private school fees. We plan on living in the Wahroonga/Turramurra/Pymble areas but it will depend on where the children go to school. My other daughter was born on 11 August 2014.
Appreciate your steer,
