NCEA results were on line yesterday -
HUGE amount of joy in our family yesterday.
James passed level 1 with merit (so in my day that would be School Certificate with a B)
It was a lovely surprise to see he passed all of his external exams with merits and even one excellence.
I burst into tears seeing the results.
The hard work over the years has paid off. Of course I phoned his assessor who said at age 7 he was one of her worst cases she had seen and her verdict was he may never read or write. We have stayed with the same assessor and she has been very interested in James saying she had read about kiddies like James but never in her working career seen such progress. James tried to ring his Speld tutor but she must of been away. But the main credit goes to James - yes book work is harder for him but he gives it his all and works hard.
Abbey got her official results which she has been waiting for - University Entrance and NCEA level 3. We knew she had these but she has been needing the official results. Any day now I can share some BIG news.
Homeschooling has worked well for our family it has enabled our kids to get well educated around all of their challenges.
We are so very proud of Abbey and James.
I was interested to read Auckland University no longer accepts homeschoolers under Provisional Entry. An Application for Admission to The University of Auckland based on a
homeschool education will only be considered for entrance on the basis of
a recognised qualification or pathway.
