Happy Easter everyone! A big thanks to Celia and Bernadette for running the last activity. The intricacy of the detail in the stain glass windows we made, and the thoroughness of preparation that they put in to make the activity day run smoothly was remarkable.
For next Friday’s activity day, Kelly has again invited the Australian distributor for the ‘Seton Home Study School’ curriculum, to show us a selection of Seton materials. We will also be given a talk by a lady who would like to share her phonics program with us.
Reminder: There will be council work going on in the hall’s carpark. This work will be carried out for a few weeks while we are at the hall. The children will not be permitted to play out side due to safety issues. You are quite welcome to bring some indoor activities to keep your children occupied. Alternatively you may wish to take your children to the nearby park.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.

The medieval history day was a great day and we thank Sean for his wonderful presentation. This Friday we are following-up on the recently completed Children’s Book Week.
Since everyone knows that homeschoolers love to read, we’re asking you to bring along your favourite book and dress as your favourite book character.
I hope you can make it along.
See you there,

The gardening day was such a lovely day we really must thank Tanya for her well organised, enjoyable, hands-on activity. Little things learnt on days such as this will be remembered long after our kids have grown up and taken their place in the world! It’s been almost 4 weeks and not only are our strawberry plants still doing well but also our snow peas are actually sprouting, yay!
Here we are, then, in the very middle of Winter and it’s likely that this week’s activity day will be entirely indoors. Well, since everyone knows that homeschoolers love to read, this week we’re asking you to bring along your favourite book, the one that just sweeps you away to another place. Be willing to tell us all about it and especially what makes it so fabulous to you. Is it the great battle scenes, the heroic rescue and escape, or the cheeky main character who is always in trouble? What is it? We all want to be impressed by your passion for your treasured book, so dress the part too. We hope everyone shares something from that wonderful, personal world that only a good book can create. It’s great fun to get “in-character” for these occasions.
I hope you can make it along – it should be a great day.
See you there,
