Sounds exciting, but aren't there hideous visa hurdles to jump?

Interesting aside, in Maori culture it is considered rude to make eye contact when talking.

I think it's only rude for children to make eye contact with Adults.......

Blimey, justa! No proper knowledge of NZ, but it's supposed to be years behind the UK. Whether that's a good or a bad thing I don't know! Very exciting, though. I hope some Kiwis come on to give you some proper information.

DS was born there. We came back here! Will post more tomorrow, am on phone now. School support services can be v poor, I was a teacher there. Hospitals good but you notice that nz is a much poorer country than the uk in all the extras.

Does school support services being poor mean that parents expertise is given more credit?
