We will meet at south shore spit tomorrow at the end of rockinghorse road from 11am. 🤩


Good morning 🙂 This group has just begun and there is a good amount of interest and the more homeschooling options for community and support and fun the better right?
My family is leaving for the UK for 6 months mid March and I am wondering if someone would like to take the reins and get this group flourishing?
I can go for it when I'm back in October but it would be so cool if it was handed over to one or a bunch of families.
Let me know either below or PM me.
There are 78 followers on the page as well and the more i post the more interest there is 😍


This week Wednesday is mad stormy. Lets go for next week meet up unless someone has a great plan for stormy days?

I would like to add in some adventures like diamond harbour ferry then walk to Purau

We can put these in for extras if people are keen or use them for the Tuesdays. Thoughts?


We have decided to meet tomorrow as well this week! It's going to be cooler so lets meet at the botanic gardens at the climbing tree near the fountain.
I have the game of cub so we can set that up on the archery lawn after a climb. :) We will meet from 1030am, see you there!

I just remembered we have surf lessons and we will be at the gardens by 1230 pm. But there may be some of you meeting earlier, let me know so I can assure people that others will be there :)


Hello! sorry for lateness of organising tomorrow. Lets meet at Sumner beach near the cave tomorrow from 11 am.
It will get pretty hot later in the day but cooler in the morning.
See you there!


We are thinking of changing the meetups to Tuesdays, let me know if this suits or doesn't suit? as we are establishing we can find what suits people. :)

Hello! We have a healthy number interested which is so cool! I will post meetups for up to 4 weeks ahead so we can all plan but while we are still in the organisation stage lets make it super simple and meet at New Brighton beach, entrance from Halsey street down the south end.

We will be there from 1030 am, feel free to pm us with any questions.

We look forward to meeting you! X



Welcome, bienvenido, nau mai!

We are a small group of homeschooling families and we created this group to connect with more lovely homeschooling families! We love to have an anchor in our week where our cups get full, connecting and playing other families on a similar path.

We meet every week on a Wednesday (we can change days if more people prefer another day) at a new outdoor location each week (or improvise when the weather doesn't allow).
We would love you to join us if you are looking for outdoor fun, connection, support in your homeschooling journey new friends of all ages and in the future group learning opportunities!

Our kids are aged from 4 through to 14 and our activities reflect all ages. We just want to meet more!

Bring plenty of food, water and changes of clothes, stay for a short while or stay until the late evening.

We are excited to meet you!
