    schools and all

    Hi! I am moving from Dubai to HK in 2 months- it is a last minute job offer but I have 2 kids aged 7 and 2 and need to find good schools for them- I have heard HKIS is good and have applied but also heard very difficult to get into- can you recommend any other good schools?
    My wife is a uk trained gp with post grad qualifications and wants to start work as well - is it possible to work straight away?
    My last question is about accomodation and areas to live in- we heard mids may not be suitable for young kids but not sure-
    ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

    Has your company offered to assist with school placement? If not ask.

    At the same time contact the AmCham & BritCham to see what advice and who they can put you in touch with who maybe be able to assist with finding placement.

    Have you tried these questions on geobaby? You will get more/better responses on the school and living questions. We like living away from the city with our young kids. Not as crowded/noisy, no cars, better air (which is relative, since all air here is rather bad).
