Group Description

Welcome to our communication loop! You’re either enjoying the trials & rewards of the homeschooling lifestyle or seriously investigating. The regional hub is Auckland Home Educators Inc (www.aucklandhomeeducators.org.nz) which includes Facebook & even basic info sessions for those still investigating the option. The National Council of Home Educators of New Zealand Inc is also a great resource (www.nchenz.org.nz). Your membership of both is encouraged.

EAHE's mix of 130+ Christian & non-Christian families live mostly in Howick, Pakuranga, Mt Wellington, Ellerslie, Remuera, Panmure, Glendowie, etc, some travelling from further away. You’ll find diverse approaches from natural learning (aka unschooling) through to full-on curricula, with the common thread of retaining responsibility for raising our own children.

There’s no organising committee & anyone’s free & encouraged to put something together which complements existing options. (Our termly newsletter notifying activity options is in abeyance - we'd love someone to get it going again!) Each regular activity has sprung up through someone's timely interest & willingness to take action. When energy allows, we also have adult socials. Developing the pool of opportunities is a responsibility to be taken by every member. An activity might be sparked by the passion or knowledge of a child, family member or someone bumped into recently. Opportunities are all around us so consider taking the bull by the horns: develop your own skills & organise an activity/trip/talk/concert or two when you're settled!

To join EAHE, send a blank email to eahssg-subscribe@yahoogroups.com and you'll automatically receive a document requesting some personal information. (Add Yahoo to your settings so it doesn't get caught in your spam filter.) Once we have that & check your membership's appropriate, you'll be 'approved'.

Enjoy your lifestyle choice - it’s a marathon not a race!
