Homeschooling in Western Australia resources

May 14th, 2009

My wife and I are in our sixth year of homeschooling. When we started out we found it hard to find resources and information to begin our journey of home education. Because of this I thought I would share three resources that have helped us over the years.

1. The WA Education Department

The WA Education Department has a homeschooling section on their website. It has information on registration, resources, educational programs and external links. It is not a bad place to start if you live in WA.

2. PerthHomeschoolers.com

This is a forum based website with lots of information about homeschooling. It has several hundred members that interact with each other. They ask questions and share experiences about their homeschool journey. I have learnt a lot from this site.

3. Wooldridges Bookstore

Wooldridges has a lot of books and resources for homeschoolers and schools in general. You can buy specific books or whole curriculums. They also stock things like maps, charts and other educational aids. Most of the things can be purchased through their website. Helpful for country people!

I hope these resources are helpful if you are thinking about homeschooling your kids.

God Bless,

Dave
