    Hi Newleaf2014, halos lahat ng public schools sa Murdoch area ay A-class schools - Rossmoyne, Willeton, Leeming, Winthrop, Applecross. Dahil dito sa top schools at magandang environment, medyo mahal ang real estate at syempre ang rental.

    Rossmoyne yung pinakamatunog na public school sa WA (mala UPIS ng WA), syempre wala katapat yung Phisci.

    Yung murdoch university eh closely linked to the rail line so kahit medyo lumayo ka ng konti pwede pa rin.

    Kung primary pa lang, hindi ganun ka focus sa acads kaya kahit saang new build school eh okay. More on health and social sila sa elementary (swimming, dance, golf, reporting, culture). Hindi pa sila ganun kafocus sa math and sciences.

    Hi Newleaf,

    Sorry ngayon lang ako nagforum ulit. Safe at cheap eh magkakontrang idea. Relative sa security sa atin, mostly safe naman sa Perth. Yun nga lang mas maraming nakawan sa mga cheaper areas kasi dun yung areas na wala work ang mga tao na umaasa lang sa goverment support.

    Areas na medyo mura eh around sa gosnells. yung surrounding area nya ay relatively cheaper pero safer at marami pinoy like kenwick, maddington, thornlie. Hindi ako masyado familiar sa North pero siguro kapareho ng gosnells ang Balga at Girrawheen.

    safest:

    @GSM32, lock_code2004 - thanks for the additional tips! Those would be very helpful to us. We're still here in Phils and have not received letter of offer from Murdoch. Curtin in Bentley has responded but mas mahal ng konti ang tuition from the former. Di ko alam kung aabot kami for 1st sem (3 March) but still hoping for a miracle. He he he...
