AussieHomeschool Closing Down 11/14/2019All 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)

Wanted to Buy - IEW Student Intensive Level A Continuation Course.
We have finished homeschooling and these are the last of our resources. All are in good to excellent condition. I have given a link to each resource and all are very similar or the same to the product seen in the link. I have tried to give a very fair price, as I want to be rid of these, but they did cost me some money. I have given weights in ( ) for postage. I would really prefer to post in pre-paid satchels as that it the easiest for me. We loved these resources and found them very helpful for educating our kids. I maybe negotiable on price. Posting from 2830.
