Homeschool Centres

I am not a homeschool centre. You cannot send me your children.  They cannot enrol with me. I am not qualified to recommend any nor am I a directory of homeschool centres in PJ, Kajang, Ipoh etc. I am a mother doing her level best to let her children learn what they want to learn, when they want to learn, where they want to learn.  I don’t use a syllabus and I don’t have a timetable.

Homeschooling is a personal choice for parents to take responsibility for their own children’s education. A homeschool centre (like any other one size fits all school), in my opinion would be anathema to this.  While they are different to mainstream schools, they are still schools. If that is what you want for you child, that’s fine. But please understand the difference and realise that you are wasting your time asking me for help or advice.

See how short this post is? It’s because I don’t know much about the topic 🙂

Another family passion

We’re into our animals and would really like our friends and readers to read this from my other blog

Caring for and helping animals to find homes has been rewarding, challenging, educational and eye opening for the entire family.  The kids are involved and they contribute so sincerely and in such unexpected ways that it’s a constant reminder that their viewpoint and innocence are something to be enjoyed.  So glad they are with me all day!

Note that while we mostly work with cats, I have almost none as the kids and cats together usually result in a flurry of manic movement that my limited photographic skills cannot capture withour inducing nausea in both photographer and viewer.  So you’ll have to use your imagination 🙂

Our first family holiday in ages

We went to Australia for my younger sister’s wedding.  While I know home is Malaysia, I could not help but love Australia.  I’ve been there a few times and each time, I am swept away by the clean clean air.  The big endless sky and the sense of adventure.  It’s as if, just may, round the corner, I might have the experience of my life.

Here’s the facebook album

The kids were so good, asking questions and interacting with so many unfamiliar adults.  We walked miles and ate all sorts of new things.  Naysayers will be disappointed to hear that no one thought them ‘unsocialised’ and shy.

And if we were to HS in Australia, I think it would be a breeze.  There is so much to see and do, for FREE! Our top picks are the Brisbane Modern Art Museum, Roma Park, Brisbane Museum and the great outdoors.

I’ll try to post a bit on all the different places and things we did so I can keep track for the kids to see one day when they are older. Wish me luck.
