How have your children settled

Postby mark-m » Mon 29 May 2006 19:41 GMT

Hi Everyone
I would be grateful to hear how your children have settled into your new life in Malta. We have 4 children 2 that will be attending secondary school and 2 primary school. What do the kids think of their new schools? Have they made friends? How long did it take to settle? Was the language a problem? Anything you can tell us we would be grateful. Thankyou Mark

Hi Mark,
I'll be interested to see any replies on your post as we've got an 11 year old who will be starting secondary school in September in Malta.
I'm anxious that she'll make friends and settle in too......
:)

Nothing to add to your thread I'm afraid Mark, I'm desperate for information on this too.....
What area are you and the family going to as I'm interested where most expats are sending their kids to school?

It's a bit too late for me...mine are in their 20's now...but one thing I do know....kids being kids...will make friends anywhere...they don't suffer from the same social constraints, bigotry and predjudices that adults do..they just get on with it.

Hopefully, that will be the case with my 11 year old..... She's at a tricky phase at the moment.
