I think they're slowing making it so schools everywhere have the same starting age and term dates.... I think?
They start school here when they are 4. So Amelie turned 4 in December, and then was off to Kinder the next month. Kinder was 2 days a week. They have since changed it to 3 days a week now though. We also only have 3 school terms, but I'm pretty sure that will change to 4 terms soon too.
lol, just jumping in there on your convo :p
Anyway..... people who know about Melbourne..... where to go and what to do???
I've only been there once, and it was only for about 3 hours, while we stopped on our way to Mt Buller with school. So I've only been to the QV market, the casino (timezone for about half hour) and some random street with heaps of factory outlets on it.
We get in to Melb at about 7pm on the Friday night. Have booked for Draculas (friggin' $210 later!!!) for Saturday night, and we fly out at about 10pm Sunday night. I think SO wants to go to Luna park on Sunday (not really my idea of fun, but if it keeps him happy. lol) and I want to do some shopping at some stage. But is there anything else we should plan to do? No children this time, so we aren't doing the zoo or aquarium. Oh, and which is better to go to, Harbour town or DFO in South Wharf?
