Welcome to SCIENCE AND SURF

In September 2019 we held our first ever Simply Homeschool Camp at Wangat and it was a blast!

Join us in March 2021 as we head off to the beach to meet other Simply Homeschool parents and kids. Immerse your family in hands-on Science with Jacob Strickling, environmental science with Take 3, and learn to surf! This is an experience not to be missed! 

I'm looking forward to taking this journey with you and your family.
