Oh my gawd!!!! I have read and re-read the various posts regarding life and living in cyprus. I must comment on the extreme differences in the details. If you move over and start your own business you seem to do alright -but what are you all starting your own business's at!!!!! Anyone who comes over extpecting work to earn their living tend to be disappointed unless they are a professional. The crux of our questions, which i would like answered honestly, are schooling for our children, aged 4 and 5, i think it would have to be english private schools, therefore what are the fees? My husband is currently a sales rep for coca cola and i am a book keeper for an independant builder/developer and also a registered (NI) childminder. What real financial prospects does this offer considering private education costs etc. As this is an open and honest forum, I would be greatful for someone to relinquish their patriatism and tell me, is there a distinction by locals between English and Irish ( as being Irish we generally don't get a great press) Many thanks in anticipation Angela & Neal

Can anyone help please we have moved to Peyia in the last week having sorted most things before we left the UK including a place for our 6 year old son at the ISOP or so we thought! He had his assessment last friday and we have been told that he will not be accepted. He was not at the top of his Year 2 class in the UK but not at the bottom either and we are completely at a loss now as the american academy have no spaces in either yr 2 or yr 1 either! We were/are reluctant to send him to a local school as we really dont think he will be able to mix does anyone have any experience or advice please ? :)

Does anybody have any experience with the assessment tests at the ISOP ? I am really concerned and wonder what happens if my son fails? Who will take him? I really dont think he will get on in a cypriot school until he can understand the language!:)
