      AussieHomeschool Closing Down   11/14/2019

      All good things must come to an end and AussieHomeschool is no different. It is with much sadness yet even more necessity that this must be so.   As of Sunday evening, 17/11/2019 the Discussion Forums will close. The Classifieds, for now although not indeterminate, will continue as is.       Why is this happening now? In all honesty, it probably should have happened many years ago but I created this forum, which originally a homeschool classifieds forum for Aussies, about 20 years or so ago. I, along with others for whom I am gratefully indebted to, have spent many, many hours sweating, laughing, praying, crying, writing, apologising, pleading and speaking about this wonderful place. In this day and age of Social Media, along with our ages and therefore differernt stages of life, it is simply not viable in any way for it to continue. You may think differently and that's okay - you honestly have to have lived through some of the dramas and learning opportunities that we all have to truly appreciate why we have the standards that we do - they were borne out of necessity and not undertaken lightly. Much blood, sweat and tears have been spilt over this place. Even more friendships, learning, debate, love, prayer and great times have been had becuase of AussieHomeschool. No one could ever be more thankful for it than I.

      I understand you may feel frustration or even anger and for that I apologise, I feel you. But now it is YOUR time to go out and spread the word of home education and its benefits. Share YOUR story, tell those you know and don't know about homeschooling and what is has done for your family.   On behalf of John (my long suffering and patient husband), myself and the ENTIRE moderating team over the many years - I THANK YOU and WISH YOU ALL THE VERY BEST IN ALL YOUR ENDEAVOURS.   God Bless, Susan (HomeGrownKids /  AussieHomeschool)

Zarafa by Michael Allin (HC)

1 post in this topic

Hello ladies,

I am a retired homeschooling mother of 4 adult children.

I sell books that might be of interest to homeschooling families.

I do this for a bit of retirement *income* and my prices reflect that, but I do tend to charge quite a lot less than EBay prices.

I want to avoid fb selling if I can...I much prefer aussiehomeschhol.

I now mostly sell via an email list I send out to ladies who like the books I sell.

(You are welcome to join that list...please message me with your email address.)



Zarafa by Michael Allin HC/DJ EC $8

 This is the true story of Zarafa, the Masai giraffe presented to Charles X of France in 1826, by the Viceroy of Egypt, and how she captivated and inspired all those who came to see her. Allin describes the giraffe-inspired fashions of the day in this period of post-Revolutionary France. From Parisienne women with their hair coiffured so high they had to sit on the floor of their carriages to men sporting hats and ties in elongated fashion, 'a la Girafe' was born.
