HOME EDUCATION – a great way to learn!

Coming up in Term 1

AHE Regional Science & Technology Fair

Science (Stock)

Wednesday 10 April
(last week of Term 1)
Western Springs Community Hall

Running for the 14th year, this is a great event providing opportunity for children to explore the world of science, and share their discoveries with the community.


Please go to our Science Page for further information and to register.
We’re looking forward to seeing your discoveries. We learn the most when we share our learning with each other. See you at the AHE Science Fair!

AHE Edible Book Day

April Fools’ Day
(Mon 1 April)
Mt Wellington

Okay…so you haven’t heard of Edible Book Day?!

This is how it works:

1. Read a book.
2. Make an edible creation that reflects an aspect of the book.
3. Bring your creation (and your book) along – we’ll oooh and aaah over everyone’s amazing edible works of art, and THEN… 4. We’ll eat them all.

You have to see it to believe it. Further information here…

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.
