St Aiden's Homeschool, South Africa, Website Updates and Free Downloads

Hello Everyone and a Happy New Year to All... I hope your Christmas Holiday and New Year's Festivities were happy, fun-filled and blessed... Now we're on to a new year and new beginnings - AGAIN ;)

I apologise in advance for the length of this update. I will keep it as short as possible but it will still be fairly long. With the holidays I kept updates to a minimum for a few weeks recently so there have been a number of additions.

The January 2008 Learning Calendar, for fun activities and international events. Not all aspects are covered on our website but I will add to each event as I can and as it is relevant to us. You may wish to incorporate some fun unit studies of some events. I'm sorry that this month is a little scant. St Aiden's was not around in January last year so I have not developed unit studies for many of the events... You can view the Full Calendar and links at

Click on the month below to find fun and educationally relevant

holidays, events, and celebrations. Use the notable occasions to

spark new areas of research and tap into your students' interests.

There's something worth celebrating every day! Explore each

page individually or download the full calendar!

These are additions to a new section of the website. Please feel free to download what may be of use to you, and share with your friends. The children's journals I have made took longer than expected, that was a massive job :) also obtaining permissions for use of graphics took some time due to the holidays. They will however be uploaded during the course of this week.

May I take this opportunity of thanking everyone for their support during the 10 months of St Aiden's life, and wishing you and yours the very best life has to offer for 2008.
