What is the availability of international schools? What has been your general experience with them, if any?

Children here will attend the local schools, which are very good. If you are assigned to post, make sure you get on a waitlist ASAP. Wesley College is a private co-ed school right next door to the Consulate. Other neighborhoods are close to good schools like Brighton Grammar (boys), Firbank (girls) and Haileybury (co-ed). Public (government) schools are good as well, the better ones probably have waitlists too. Be sure to look into schools ASAP if you have children. Younger children can attend an Early Learning Center or daycare. They vary in quality and most are very expensive. - Jul 18, 2017
