Hi Everyone,

It’s book week again, so it’s time to dress up as your favourite character and tell us a little about your favourite book.  It’s always fun to find out what someone  else is reading and discover why they like it so much.

An Introduction to Medieval Europe, Friday 19 August

August 15, 2016 § Leave a comment

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to Georgette for running a successful arts and crafts day!

This Friday, we will be focusing on how things were different in the medieval time as compared to modern times: in particular we will compare the food, clothes, and lifestyle. We will host a young man whose passion is all things medieval, and it promises to be a fascinating morning, bringing history to life!


No previous expertise with swords nor chainmail is required.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

God Bless,


Bush Dancing, Friday 22 July

July 18, 2016 § Leave a comment

Hi Everyone,

What a cold Winter we are having here in Melbourne!

To warm us up at the next activity day, Therese will be teaching the children the basics of bush dancing. The younger children will learn a simple dance. The older children will be learning a few more complicated dances.

So please come dressed in boots and country style clothing to get into the spirit of the day. 

Looking forward to seeing you all,

Book Activity – Friday, 25 July, 2014

Hi Everyone,

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,


Drama activity day, Friday 7th March – Bible stories!

March 5, 2014 § Leave a comment

Hi everyone.

The Show ‘n’ Tell day was really lovely. It’s always good to see the kids talking in front of an appreciative audience and the diversity in our group made for some fascinating presentations and demonstrations of skill.  We’ll definitely make space for more of these days in the future!

This week Therese is organising some drama activities.  They don’t know it yet but our children will be organizing and performing short plays based on stories from The Holy Bible.  Biblical costumes and props are most welcome.


This is something that can involve kids of all ages, requiring co-operation, good humour and more than a little dramatic flair.  It will be a lot of fun so I hope you can make it.
