Ministry of Education Forum

Wednesday 29 March, 7:30pm
Epsom Community Centre

Are you thinking about homeschooling? Confused about writing the exemption application? Not sure quite what they are asking for in each section of the exemption application? Do you have questions relating to special needs ? What is the allowance? What happens when we go overseas? All these questions and more will be addressed during the evening. Demographic data of the Auckland area will also be shared. This is a chance to hear the MoE’s perspective.

What is AHE?

Auckland Home Educators is a regional organisation – here to help you in your homeschooling journey or to provide information for those interested in this path.

We are here to advocate for home education.  Home education is a valid (excellent!) educational choice for New Zealand families and supported by the Ministry of Education.

We help support learning and connect homeschooling families through regional events such as the Science Fair, Cross Country, Parent Forums etc.  (See our events page for more details.)

Browse our website to find out about getting started, support groups, and how we can help.

Join AHE to keep up to date with homeschooling events, activities, and groups via our email loop and newsletter.
