Welcome to the HEdNI website.

This is your window to the wealth of information, fun, and support available from the network of home educating families in Northern Ireland.

HEdNI is an inclusive group, welcoming those of all backgrounds, religious beliefs, races and cultures. We do not promote any one method of home-educating; rather we support the right of all families to choose for themselves what suits them best.

Art Class with FE McWilliam Gallery

Two groups of home educated children enjoyed another art class with the fabulous Deborah Malcomson at the FE McWilliam Gallery.  This is such a popular event with our community and it’s easy to see why.  Deborah naturally gets on the kids level, earns their respect and teaches them some really cool art.  This month the kids designed a colour wheel, discovering what colours you can make when you mix primary colours together. 

Ice!

  Our home educated kids have been having lots of fun on ice over the summer and into September.  Some kids have started their new term of ski lessons with Craigavon ski slopes.  Others have been taking to the slopes bi-monthly on a snow tube which always promises great craic.  A group of under 10’s had a 6 week taster of ice skating lessons at dundonald ice bowl over summer that has now continued into regular lessons during term!
