We live in an inner city suburb about 15 minutes from Perth city; by the beautiful Swan River. We have 2 children (aged 11 and 14) and a cat and a dog.

We would include you in our activities and general family life. We speak English and our children are learning French at school. Ideally we would like someone who can speak French.

    The help we require is to interact with our children while we work and also to do some easy home maintenance. Our children don't need babysitting due to their age but would like some fun people to hang out with during the school holidays. Things they like doing during the holidays is to go to the beach, take a bike ride, play tennis and go to the movies. The maintenance job that requires doing is to paint the wrought iron gate and fence. All materials will be provided. We require someone with good attention to detail for this fiddley job; it isn't physically demanding.
