Our Curriculum 2014 | Our Aussie Homeschool
(Check the bottom of the page for links to what we've used in the past.)

Australia's schools operate on a calendar year.  The year is divided into four terms with breaks for school holidays between terms and a longer break in the summer (January).  All up the school year is forty weeks.  We don't follow the school terms exactly, instead we take breaks as needed for illnesses or our own holidays.

Here's what we're up to right now...
