    Hi Fuzzbox

    My son Lewis (14) goes to Helensvale High School, he is in year 10, he loves it, in the UK he was a very quite young man, but here he is totally different, the school is very good, most people that I spoke to before we came here told me it was a good school, he is doing well made plenty of friends, it took a couple of weeks, had no problems so far, have a look at there website. Hope this helps

    Helensvale high school holds Little Athletics on a friday night, great for all ages and a great way to meet people. Good luck.

    Yes Wendy they will take him earlier somewhere. No doubt. Let him do a bit of year 10 near-ish the end of the year, get to know a few faces and make some friends, have Christmas and do year 11 and 12. He'll need to have y11 + 12 to get his OP to get into University. I started out doing IT (Computers) at QUT. All Universities offer IT in some form. There's little variation in entry requirements. Most students need roughly an OP 13 at the moment. English is required for pretty much everything at University level and in some cases (UQ in particular) they really like you to have Maths B for IT.

    Best of luck
