What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?
Pick a sport, any sport and that is the best way to meet someone over here. If sport isn't your thing then try bushwalking, volunteer groups, join a gym, whatever, there really is quite a diverse range of groups you can join. (Continue)

A reader commented on the Expat Report Review of International School of Western Australia (ISWA) in Perth, Australia
Review-of-International School of Western Australia (ISWA)
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
We have a gym, school fields, and playground. There are extra-curricular activities and clubs, and most families participate in community sports and activities as well. A lot of Australian sports are played within a club system and not a school system. For example, my sons play basketball, and the best basketball is played through the club system. Kids from every school come to participate. (Continue)

Can anyone give me the latest reviews about this school. Perth is on our relocation list but I am not sure about the schools in perth. We are now at an international British School and if we move to Perth my eldest has to do her IB there.
A reader replied recently with:
I also have children at ISWA and have very mixed feelings about the school in general. We moved here from the states and have tried an Australian school and ISWA. Education in Perth is very different than education in the US. The only advantage to ISWA is they operate on the northern hemisphere calendar. Parent involvement does not exist and the administration wants to keep it that way. It is really ashamed considering the amount of professional spouses that aren't working. There are not any sports through school and when the school is approached to a parent volunteering to coach a team the administration flat out tells you they are not interested. I am not sure avoidance is the right choice. It is probably better than anything else but it falls short of satisfactory.

The campus has plenty of room for expansion. There is no formal athletic program, but plenty of after school activities are organized by the school. (Continue)

The school facilities have great potential. It is a brand new school, but it has very experienced teachers from a wide range of backgrounds. Some are from Australia, America, Puerto Rico, New Zealand, and various other places. There are numerous activities available after school. There is a new schedule published every quarter with the activities available after school for that term. All of the teachers take a turn to supervise an activity.Although there are no team sports, choir, or band, there are many community programs available.

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?
If you have children it seems very easy to meet others through playgroups, kindergarten/school etc. If not, then joining a sports team/club is a good start. Also participating in outings etc that are arranged through other newcomers - I've found it easier to make friends with other newbies (foreigners or those from other parts of Australia) than long time Perth people.
