Welcome to Euka News February 2023!
With the first Term of the year in full swing, we want to warmly welcome all returning students and also the new students who have joined us for Term 1. We trust this year will be full of fun, learning and adventure. We heard yesterday from a mum who was thrilled that her Grade 10 son eagerly jumped into a science experiment, examining DNA, on his first day. There is plenty of learning fun ahead.
We want to thank all families that participated in the recent Euka survey. The insight you have provided will allow us to keep providing new and exciting features that are really wanted by the Euka community. This month we have included useful articles we hope will inspire and equip parents as they begin the year. An article on how learning takes place, information for those new to homeschooling, ideas to boost your family’s creativity, and some ideas on grabbing some quality time with teens.
You will also find information about the Parent Council of Victoria.
We trust the year ahead with Euka will be a fantastic homeschooling experience.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT – Mathletics Information
We have had some parents reach out at the start of Term with some Mathletics questions. It may help to read the following information:
We need you to let us know if you want your child’s Mathletics account to be moved up to the next Grade. Not every child works at the same pace. Some prefer to take lessons slower, or have started later, and will not be ready at the beginning of the year. As a result, just email the team when you are ready to have the account moved up and we will be happy to do that for you – [email protected].
When you move ahead to the new Grade level, you may be surprised to find some lessons already completed. That is because Mathletics have added some lower Grade level lessons for students who may need revision. Some revision lessons may already be marked off. You will not be asked to do those again, but you will be asked to look over any that you feel you may have been forgotten over the holiday break. The support team are here to help.
Thank you to all families who participated in the Euka survey. We have been able to hear directly from you, regarding the services you would find valuable, and how you might like them to work. We are busy taking all that information and using it to lead us forward with exciting new features due to be released later in the year. Watch this space!
As promised two families have been drawn at random to win a $100 gift card.
The names of those families are:
Clever Kids: Louise B.
Premium: Krista G.
