Between AIC thornlie and Langford islamic college Kindly advise me which school you would consider for your kids for strong education and friendly and healthy environment for the students. Thanks! Like Show More Reactions Comment 2 You and 1 other Comments Iftikhar Mahmood At this stage Langford Islamic College is the most popular Muslim school in WA. Everything seems to be running in a systematic and professional manner over there.In my opinion you should consider any other school for your children but never consider Australian Islamic College.

There is a healthy and growing Muslim homeschooling community in Perth who can lend some support in your journey. Personally, I am not impressed with any of the Muslim schools in Perth, and that has been one of many factors which informed our decision to homeschool. Like · Reply · 2 · 5 hrs Jessica Arnott replied · 2 Replies · 5 hrs Jessica Arnott It is when one or both parents register with the government to become the main facilitators of their children's education. This may mean they either teach their children themselves (the most common scenario), or they hire tutors or send their children to community classes for some subjects. It is also most common for the mother to be the main educator as they are the ones more likely to forgo paid work and stay at home to look after their children. The government will direct you to the national curriculum online, and then you may teach to that curriculum using whichever method you choose. It allows the family a great more freedom and flexibility: no school runs, uniforms, lunches, take a holiday whenever you like, teach how you like, let your kids go at their own pace, spend more time together, add in any subject you like (eg, Quran, Arabic etc)... There are many positives, but it requires dedication and commitment from the parents. A government-employed moderator will come out to your house once a year to check that your children are making appropriate progress and you will receive reports for them. You keep the reports and your children will be able to return to school or enter TAFE or university later because they have evidence that they were being appropriately educated and it was approved by the government. Sorry for long reply - I hope that answers most of your questions. Unlike · Reply · 3 · 5 hrs Eman Najeed Thanks!! But what about tests? You know these regular tests from government that decides the student academic level? Like naplan and atar and such?? Like · Reply · 5 hrs Jessica Arnott You can choose for your child to sit them or not. Until now, I have found them unnecessary because I sit with my children every day so I know their strengths and their weaknesses already. These tests are more useful for teachers in large classes who may not know every student very well or for institutions which do not know your child and need to rank their "abilities" against other children. Like · Reply · 5 hrs Eman Najeed Aren't these tests determine what uni and major kids are eligible to enrol in and study?? Like · Reply · 5 hrs · Edited Saqlain Naqvi Are there any State Funds available? Like · Reply · 5 hrs Jessica Arnott Yes and no. Naplan does not determine university entrance. Naplan is mainly for the teachers' and schools' benefit (not so much your child's, although your child may receive more help in the classroom if their score is below average). ATAR is more for university entrance, but there are several different paths to get into university: through doing a TAFE course prior to applying to university, through WACE (usually by doing Yr11&12 at high school, or by doing the ATAR (if only by doing the ATAR, other evidence of your child's academic abilities may also need to be submitted, such as a portfolio). TAFE and universities are very willing to accept homeschooled students as they have a reputation for being mature and responsible (as well as being academically capable). Unlike · Reply · 1 · 5 hrs Jessica Arnott Saqlain Naqvi Each child used to receive the schoolkids bonus, but I think that is being phased out. Homeschooling is usually funded by the parents themselves, but can end up a cheaper option than traditional schooling. For example: I have 5 children, so if I went to work and paid for them to attend school (plus uniforms, lunches, stationery, petrol, time spent in a car etc) I would have almost no salary left over. Plus, I scan all of the kids' workbooks so that I can print them out for younger siblings in the years ahead without buying more books. There are many other methods to save money. One drawback, though, is that the mother may be out of the workforce for many years and it may be difficult for her to enter again once her children are grown. I have come to terms with that and accepted that it may also be the case for me one day. I think it is a fair swap that I get to watch my children grow and be involved in their early years so much.

Unlike · Reply · 1 · 2 hrs · Edited Saqlain Naqvi There are few examples where parents have performed homeschooling until 12 years, in limited options State Government issues funds too. What kind of issues at LIC. https://www.facebook.com/RealEstateSA5000/posts/1184938154888095:0The school is called Open access. http://www.openaccess.edu.au/ You can call them and explain your situation and ask them the best way to have your children enrolled through them. If you can obtain a letter from your local doctor and then contact the school they are enrolled in now ask for the counselor and explain the situation and that you. now want them to be enrolled into open access. You still receive your normal Centrelink entitlement if registered so it's not like you are at home with no money. There is a registration system so in that sense you might consider it accreditation.

Cengiz Terzi My son goes to LIC and I must say I am happy, actually more than happy teachers are fantastic and easy to approach, they are more than happy to go the extra mile if you're concerned about results and get results. Parents seem to think that education finishes at school and usually think they should get results only in school. LIC provided my son a schedule to complete after school to improve his grades. With teachers providing support and us as parents doing the same, my son now (as in previous year grades have improved) is more organized more willing and enjoys the perks LIC provides. As for admin I've never had any problems and they politely addressed any queries I have put forward to them - people need to understand that schools have policies and parents that can't be flexible or refuse to respect these policies are usually the ones that complain - ================ Bec Riley Faul Following Unlike · Reply · 1 · 5 hours ago Jo Deacon You don't need to write FOLLOWING/F to get notification on a post all you have to do is turn on notifications.

What do you think? Like · Reply · 13 hours ago Sal Grace What are you asking? If you mean some sort of co-op there are successful ones. But you wouldn't take your kids to a co-op every day else that would be a school. There are plans for a sort of co-op being formed in the SA homeschoolers group. Join that group if you are interested. But homeschool is not forming your own school. Also you'd have legalities to consider. - insurance and liability, and also making sure it doesn't classify as a school and come under all the requirements schools must follow. It's not really clear what you are asking - this is a very different question. Join the Facebook groups if you want to know more and look out for Beverley Paine and her website too.

I've heard that most families are done in less than a 9-3 school day. Also, what support or programs are available for those with learning needs, like high level advancement, etc. Thanks.
