Event description

Description

Many families are interested in learning more about homeschooling options for their children due to bullying, dissatisfaction with schools, having a child with special needs with a lack of support in their current school placement, travel difficulties.

Homeschooling in Australia (also known as home education) is a vibrant growing movement. Statistics indicate there are at least 30 000 children homeschooling in Australia. During this workshop, you will hear from local families who homeschool their children and learn about the process and requirements for homeschooling in NSW. Resources will also be shared so families can access further information and support after the event.
