Well, we just had our monitoring interview today, for THEAC – The Tasmanian Home Education Advisory Council, for the first time. It was supposed to go for around 1 hour, but lasted for just over 2. The lady who did it was amazing and put us at ease very quickly and the whole process was very informal, but enlightening as well to say the least. We enjoyed showing her everything we have been up to, all the hard work DD has done and all the records we keep, she was very impressed with the record keeping and said it was ‘ALOT’ but never the less it was very impressive… I personally did not think it would be much at all… but I am pleased she felt it was more than I needed.
We talked about Maths and the things we use to learn this, English the same, and how we incorporate social opportunities, support, L.O.T.E, science, history, PE, etc etc etc into our life. We talked about routine or the lack of it! and at the end we were informed that we passed without any issues and they will come back in twelve months, and then again if all is still well every 2 years to monitor us! – which is great news!.
We are all so very excited at passing the monitoring, which for us seemed like such a huge thing, but really was so nicely done in a real supportive manner
Going now to celebrate!
