      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)

Easter Message from AussieHomeschool 2013 AussieHomeschool

Aussie Homeschool hopes that you will all have a safe time over the Easter period. It is our desire that families will be refreshed in the grace of the Lord Jesus and will rejoice with one another. We hope and pray for safe travelling for all families.


Easter is a time to remember, to reflect on the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This part in God’s story is the centrality of the Christian faith. If it were not for the resurrection of Jesus, Christianity is no more than the Greek myths or old Roman legends. Our entire hope depends upon the resurrection of Jesus Christ!

Maybe you’re tired, weary, feeling burned out or don’t know which way to turn. The resurrection is the greatest reminder that victory can come from defeat. If we look back to the time when Jesus walked the earth, we know that the Jewish people were anxiously awaiting God’s promise of a deliverer. They wanted the Saviour, the Messiah that God promised would come and overthrow their tormentors (the Romans). Some Jews did believe that Jesus was The Messiah. Then, he died. He died in a manner which was a humiliating- death on a Roman cross. Now many people had been killed this way, but this man was different. How so? Because Jesus was the Lamb of God, whose blood did not contain the taint of sin carried by the lineage of Adam. He was truly the Lamb of God. Spotless, without any blemish. No doubt some of the Jews were disappointed, crushed…no doubt some felt hopeless.

But the story doesn’t end there.


He rose again! The stone was rolled away! He conquered death! Through His death and resurrection, salvation from sin and reconciliation with God is available to all who turn to Him. The humiliating death upon a cross, which seemed like utter defeat, became the greatest victory in the history of the world. God, Creator of the universe, acknowledged that the payment for our sin was acceptable. Nothing else was able to redeem us from the just curse of God’s Law. We were not bought with silver and gold…but with the precious blood of Christ.

Just as the greatest victory was birthed through something which looked like defeat, we can look to God and trust that He will work all things  for our good. He will lead us through any and all times of testing and He will deliver us. We may not always recongise it as deliverance, but deliver us He will. We can have true peace. Believe.

As you go through this time of remembrance, think about the cold and lifeless body in a dusty tomb over two thousand years ago. Then think about the sound of blood rushing through the heart and body of the risen Christ. Think about the groaning of rock as the stone was rolled away.

He is risen! Hallelujah!
