    My daughter just turned 17 last week and is currently attending grade 11 in the Philippines. When we migrate to Australia on Feb 2018, will she be attending grade 11 or 12? Thanks in advance.

    @jangjaca medyo alanganin ang dating nyo kung ipasok nyo sa Y12 agad.. nag start na kasi Y12 october this year and will end next year Sept.. I really don't suggest na mag start agad sya ng Y12.. kasi baka mabigla sya at maapektuhan pa yung HSC and ATAR nya..

    by the way.. I have a daughter who just finished Y12 last month.. . medyo kakaiba ang Y12 due to additional pressure/stress due to HSC... especially if you are shooting to get a high ATAR para makapasok sa course na gusto mo sa uni

    @multitasking actually mas gusto namin sya ipasok sa grade 11 but I read somewhere na ang schooling sa aus ay base sa age kaya medyo nag worry ako.
    Ok lng pla sya matanggap sa grade 11 khit 17 n sya ngaun?
    I thought start ng school year is end of January. Iba pla para sa grades 11 and 12?
    Salamat po sa pagsagot. Very informative.

    Hi. Me idea po kayo if anong year sa school pag ang age are 10, 8 and 6? Thanks po.
  • heycoachputmeinheycoachputmein australiaPosts: 40Member
    @abby_bm

    10yr old (before or on April) - years 4/5
    8yr old (before or on April) - years 2/3
    6yr old (before or on April) - year 1/2


    generally, age ang basehan, but dont be surprised if the school moved them to different year levels.

    aside from age, may assessment din ang bata based on their learning capacity, social maturity, english proficiency etc etc.




  • abby_bmabby_bm SydneyPosts: 14Member
    @heycoachputmein thank you po. Ask ko na din if kelan ang start ng school year and ano requirements.
  • heycoachputmeinheycoachputmein australiaPosts: 40Member
    Generally, school year starts either last week of Jan (after ng long weekend ng australia day) or 1st week of feb.

    dahil State govt ang may hawak ng local school systems, depende pa rin sa regulation ng state, minsan may maaga , minsan may huli

    also, depende rin kung private or public yung school/institution.

    Requirements? as usual documents ng pag eenrol ng bata.

    siguro ang 'uncommon' documents na wala karamihan sa mga enrollees ay yung
    vaccination history (importante yan)
  • abby_bmabby_bm SydneyPosts: 14Member
    @heycoachputmein thanks so much. Ask ko din if nirerequire ba na kelangan 3 bedroom plus if me 4 kids? Thanks.
  • jangjacajangjaca SydneyPosts: 49Member
    @heycoachputmein yun po bang vaccination history kelangan pa din for admission sa year 11?

    I think yun mga school meron silang recommended shop para sa uniform nila. kailangan mo lang magcheck kung san mas mura at mas ok ang fit.

    Hello po. Pa-advise naman sa inyo, alam ko natanong na ito dati kaso naguguluhan pa din ako..

    Yung panganay ko ngayon ay Grade 7 dito sa pinas. Bale sa April 2020 ang plano namin pag punta. Kung ieenroll ko siya for 2nd term, anong Year siya qualified? 13yrs old siya ngayon at 21-Dec-2006 ang bday.. nag email kasi kami sa isang high school ang reply eh “The school currently caters for students from year 8 to year 12 and as your son will be in year 7, we will be unable to accommodate.” Akala namin pwede siya as year 8.
    Salamat po.

    dito kasi regardless ano year na ang bata sa pinanggalingan nya they will follow the age bracket kong san grade sya dapat. like for example. yung anak ko grade 2 natapos nya na sa pinanggalingan nya school. pero mag 7 years old pa lang sya. nun dumating kami sa Australia at nag enroll. check nila age tpos sabi ok. year 2 sya. so walang bearing yung grade nya previously start sya kong ano grade nag fall age nya dito sa Australia. thats per my personal experience. cheers!
