Non-international student status after PR

My wife, myself and 2 kids are on 457's. Her work can sponsor us for PR and it is still only taking 12 weeks so its quite straightforward.

Both of my kids want to go to Uni here in Feb 2012 but of course we'd have to pay International fees on the 457.

Someone told me you have to have been resident for a year before you don't have to pay International fees so we are wondering if we have to go for residency right now. Does anyone know if this is correct and can point me to a definitive or official statement about it?

We don't want to give up the LAFHA before we have to.

I've not ever seen anything like needing to be PR for 12 months before being eligible for normal study without international fees being necessary.
Study in Australia might have more info and/or somewhere to contact.
