• Despite the name, AussieHomeschool is more than just a homeschooling site. It is a network dedicated to encouraging relationships – family relationships and most of all, our relationship to God. We aim to accomplish this goals by posting informative, encouraging, motivational posts from real, Aussie parents. We link to a wide variety of resources. We endeavour to assist parents to take full responsibility for the children’s education, regardless of public, private or homeschool.

    The AHS moderating team has over 70 years of home education experience between them. That’s seventeen children and 70 years in total.

Tech Admin


John is the technical genius behind the site. He’s the one who has to endure the shrieks and screams every time something goes wrong with the site. 

Without John’s financial support, patience and tireless efforts this site would not exist as we know it. He is married to Susan (HomeGrownKids) and is a homeschooling dad. His interests are astronomy, woodworking, computers, playing with the little ones, the Adelaide Crows and pottering in his man-cave.

Daughter of Eve has been working with AHS since February 2010. Jess adds gentle wisdom, sound reason and steadiness to the mix. She is an eclectic homeschooler who has homeschooled her six for over 15 years in several states. She is a compulsive collector of books and curriculum, and slowly learning that her house will not hold all the books that she likes and that not everything good is necessary!

Liz has worked for AHS for many years. She cleans and dusts the Classifieds area and she loves to hit the big red delete button. Liz has been married for nearly 23 years, blessed with 3 children & living in the ACT. They were all homeschooled from birth through to college (Year 11/12 in the ACT) using a variety of methods and curriculum, some which worked, others which they’ve sold! Her favourite resources are Saxon Math, Wordly Wise and the Bible. The final few weeks of homeschooling are here and the end of 2015 will see the end of homeschooling for our family.  Liz is also a chocolate lover, winter bunny, maker of Cherry Ripe mudcakes!
