Homeschooling in Brisbane (& Homeschool Groups in Brisbane)

Homeschooling in Brisbane has been increasing in the last decade. It has also become widespread in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. The COVID crisis has also increased homeschooling registrations as parents realise they can safely educate children themselves. This post will discuss homeschool registration in Brisbane and finding a homeschool group in Brisbane, Ipswitch, and the surrounding suburbs  (with links to groups).

I hope you enjoy reading this blog post. If you want to do my course on how to homeschool, click here.

Also, if you don’t have much community around you, why not join the Made 2 Homeschool Community here, a community I (Rebecca Devitt) am part of. I live in Wollongong NSW, but I find this is a great place to get mum community, no matter where I am.

What are the Conditions of Registration?

To be registered to homeschool in Brisbane, you need to:

  1. make sure children are getting a high-quality education
  2. provide an annual written report on the child’s educational progress
  3. provide notification of change of address within 28 days if you  move house

How Do I Register to Homeschool in Brisbane?

You can see the registration form for homeschooling here (current as of 2022). Post it to:

Home Education Unit
PO Box 3710
South Brisbane BC QLD 4101 

Homeschool Registration in Brisbane Government website.
Start homeschooling in Brisbane by going to the government website and downloading their registration form.

What Age Do My Children Need to Be to Register?

Homeschool registration in Brisbane is compulsory for homeschool students who are 6 to 16 years. However, you can register as early as five years and six months to 18 years.

Can I Homeschool Part-Time in Brisbane?

Unfortunately, part-time homeschooling isn’t an option. You’re either registered as a homeschool or in a school.

You’ve Got 60 Days Provisional Registration

When you apply for registration in Brisbane, you get a 60-day provisional registration granted. The department reviews your application and approves when satisfied.

Provisional registration gives you some breathing room, so you’re not panicked in the interim period between school and homeschool.

Most homeschool applications will be approved, so don’t panic.

I haven’t heard of many homeschool applications being rejected. I’m sure it happens. But I wanted to assure you it is very uncommon.

How Do I Do the Homeschool Reports?

In the 10th month of your homeschool, you need to write a report outlining:

  • the details of your children’s learning experiences,
  • how goals are being and have been achieved and
  • work samples to assess children’s progress.

You can learn more about reporting in Brisbane here.

In other states, like NSW, home educators have inspectors coming to their houses to assess progress. In Brisbane, reports replace this process.

“I’m Stuck – I Need Help”

If you’re stuck and need help with this application, contact the Queensland homeschool unit here, and they should be able to help.

Are There Unregistered Homeschoolers?

There is quite a number of them. These families fall off the radar or refuse to register their children with the government.

Where Do I Find a Homeschool Parent to Chat To?

The best way to do this is to go through Facebook Groups (see the section on Facebook groups with direct links below). Ask your local church pastors if you don’t have Facebook, as churches often have significant homeschool communities.

When you’ve got into a group around your area, ask your questions on the forums.

Questions about the homeschooling requirements in Brisbane appear constantly, and other homeschool mothers are only too keen to help out.

This is how you find a homeschool group in Brisbane.
This is how you find a homeschool group in Brisbane. If you don’t have Facebook, the best place to inquire about homeschoolers in your area is to go to a church and ask the pastor to connect you with local home educators.

What Can Homeschoolers Do or NOT Do?

THEY CAN’T: Although homeschoolers can’t get an ATAR, they can do other university entrance exams that universities and trade colleges like TAFE accept. So, this isn’t a big deal.

THEY CAN: They can do so many things, including:

  • play sport,
  • sit NAPLAN tests,
  • get access to school dental benefits,
  • get a Textbook and Resource Allowance,
  • receive a Queensland Certificate of Education,
  • complete work experience and do a school apprenticeship.

Homeschoolers in Brisbane can also do many things school students can’t do like:

  • take extended field trips,
  • start their own business at home,
  • compete more efficiently in elite sport,
  • read books whenever they wish
  • and parents can teach children their own [political/religious] ideas instead of someone else’s.

There are many other reasons to homeschool, which you can see here.

Rebecca Devitt

Most adults don't particularly want to relive their schooling experience on a daily basis. They would gladly move on to a new life devoid of homework and teachers. Very, very few adults will passionately blog about their schooling some 15 years after graduating. This makes Rebecca Devitt somewhat unique. As it happens, she was homeschooled. And she loved it. Still does. And she wishes every kid could get a taste of homeschooling at its very best. Her website How Do I Homeschool, is a springboard for parents to see what a life of homeschooling could be for both them & their children. When she's not blogging Rebecca is still homeschooling her-adult-self by learning Latin, growing weird vegetables and most importantly looking after her two children Luke & Penny. She has a husband Tristan and is a participant at Wollongong Baptist Church. She's also written a book about why parents should homeschool called 'Why on Earth Homeschool'.
