Undeterred by a few drops of rain, home educators descended on Camperdown Park in Dundee on Saturday for the Schoolhouse spring picnic. Armed with brollies, raincoats (and even a tent in one case!), families were able to enjoy shared refreshments, activities, networking and a spot of ‘intelligence gathering”, with those new to home education being welcomed to the community by more experienced ‘non-schoolers’.
It was a joy to observe so many children of different ages, from different places, many of whom had never met before, having such a great time together, and the photos speak for themselves. Big thanks must go to Marley, a second generation home educator, who organised the picnic and who is already planning future events.
