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.

Roller Skating at The Rink

A crowd of Home Educating families enjoyed an exciting few hours of roller skating and sliding on a bouncy castle with The Rink in Portadown recently.  There was a great array of pro skaters and beginners, lots of falls and lots of laughs!  The Rink can only be praised for their attentiveness to our beginners and excellent hosting overall.    An event I’m sure lots of us will be eager to repeat. 

Junior Science Club

Our primary aged science club met recently in W5 for our junior sparks monthly session.  The kids explored all things ice!   Melting it, floating it as ice boats, meeting a polar bear and designing their own bear in a craft session.    W5’s new med lab was also really well received, the children had a great time exploring the human body in fantastic detail.
