In Australia, we have christian resources available to us for home education. Specifically SDA christian resources are mostly only available in the USA, and can be obtained online. The SDA Homeschool website provides a list of these SDA curriculum resources and online programmes.
There is an online SDA Bible curriculum from the South Pacific Division which was developed for the Pacific Islands and it is free. It is called Pacific Island Bible Curriculum for Primary Schools.
The content I have listed below is both christian and non christian. I have attempted to include as many christian homeschooling websites and materials available specifically in Australia, to my knowledge.
Getting started with Homeschooling in Australia:-
- Home education Association
- Homeschooling Down Under
- Always learning / The Educating Parent
- Design Your Homeschool
The above websites will assist you with specifically Australian information on getting started with home schooling. The Home Education Association is definitely the first place to start. Here you can find all the information you need from state requirements to support groups in your area. HEA provides members with many benefits and promotes home education with the state governments of Australia.
Homeschooling Down Under is a website put together by a christian home educator and combines resources, a publishing business, and advice. The produce a free e-newsletter.
Always Learning along with their second website The Educating Parent provides christian resources for home educators that are very comprehensive and help to demystify homeschooling through a wealth of experience.
Design You Own Homeschool is a christian resource that steps you through how to set your goals, to choosing your course of study, subjects, approaches and organisation.
The Aussie Educator is a very informative website breaking down all you need to know for homeschooling in each state and includes access to support group information.
