    Smile Education

    Ok next question.

    When we make the move we could have a choice to move the children at the end of P2 and P4 here: so they would start in NZ half way through the appropriate year, or we wait until they are half way through P3 and P5 here and move just after Christmas so they start new school at the start of a new year.

    Any opinions in what is best for them and the schools?

    The schools here are taking in new kids all the time (the 5 year olds just start when they are 5 rather than the start of the school year). I wouldn't have thought it would make to much difference which way you did it. Your kids would be put into the appropriate age class adn then move up when it is time. The schools here seem to be pretty accomodating so i'm sure you wouldn't have any problems starting half way thorugh the year or at the beginning of the year. You could always conatact your intended school and get their opinion.
