Confused who to enrol through for homeschooling

Hi everyone. My daughter is going into year 7 next year and is petrified to go due to the reputation of the high school in our catchment area. I've been looking online at different homeschooling options but finding it a little confusing. Can anyone help please. Regards Rebecca

Bridgetown anyone ?!?

 hello all,


My daughter and i are moving to Bridgetown in a couple of weeks. She is craving for friends to play with. And I would love to meet new friends as well.


Is there any unschooling families around ? Bridgetown or Balingup ?



Any homeschoolers in the Swan Valley?

Hello. I have a son who turns 9 at the end of the year. We have just started home schooling. We would love to get together with other home schoolers for afternoon park playdates, excursions, fun, company etc...



Another Newbie- Lesmurdie, 7 & 4yo sons

Hi all, Just saying hello. I recently started home-schooling my 7 year old son. (The four year attends an awesome play based kindy) We have home schooled before in New Zealand but not over here. At the moment we are ticking along with getting started and have our first Moderator visit this week. I will hopefully get my act together and join some groups/activities/meet-ups early next year. In the meantime if there's anyone close by who wants to have a catch-up or chat I am happy to do so after the school holidays. Kind regards, Gypsy

Nannup area

Hi all. We are based near nannup, but travel around the southwest a bit. Would love to meet up with other unschoolers or homeschoolers. Our son is nearly 7, but gets along with people of any age.

Living 'remote' and homeschooling

 Hello everyone,

Homeschooling in Denmark

 Hi, We are homeschooling our 5 year old son in Denmark and have been hoping to get in contact with other homeschoolers around the area, possibly to arrange some excursions or to join an already established group if anyone knows of any? Thanks :) Claire
