    Default Hi from us

    Hi, we are the Walker family, we moved here at the end of 2006 due to a job offer made to my husband Alan from a Christchurch company (who incidentally made him redundant in July 2008 - Grrrr)
    We are failrly settled - ho hum - still homesick, well I am, but getting better by the month.
    2 children, Jessica 12 & Joe 5.
    hello everybody :)

    Walker family and welcome to MTNZ .

    Glad to hear you are settling in NZ although it doesn't appear to have been all plain sailing. Has Alan managed to get another job now? That was a bit of bad luck, being made redundant, especially if he was happy in his job. Hope he fairs better this time.

    Look forward to seeing you around the forum.

    Default Hello from US

    I see you have a 5 year old, my daughter s 5 also. How do you like the schools? Do you have suggestions for which schools are the best? We are planning to move to NZ shortly from the US and we want to be sure our kids have the best education. Also, any suggestions?
