Hub Autumn 2010 Brochure


Published on

’The Hub’ is a space which offers all homeschoolers and unschoolers the opportunity to participate in a range of activities specifically created for the home education community. ’The Hub’ is run by a group of home educating families, partnered with various facilitators to provide learning experiences which enhance and extend what is already provided at home. By providing opportunities to home educating families to participate in activities they might not usually have access to and that they may wish to do in a group setting, we hope to make ’The Hub’ a vibrant resource for the home educating community in the Blue Mountains.
