The Homeschool Gazette (THG) is a platform dedicated to nurturing homeschoolers as writers, and all-rounded savvy communicators as they explore multiple media in the digital age. THG connects the community as students embark on joint projects to write, produce videos and podcasts.

Through editorial features, regular columns and contributed articles, THG showcases original work by homeschoolers as they research, interview, analyse and report.

THG hopes that families in the community will be informed, enlightened and in a small way, encouraged in their homeschooling journey. To offer the writers, words of encouragement, constructive feedback, or any comments, email to sghomeschoolgazette@gmail.com. If you would like to contribute a piece of writing, do contact THG for the recommended submission guidelines.

Issue 1


THG is launched on 9 August 2011, as our nation celebrates its 46th birthday. This year, homeschoolers attended their first National Education Show, and THG joins them as they recollect the experience. Singapore's Presidential Election is also held in August. Five youths learn together what it means to elect the person to fill one of the highest offices in the land.

In Issue 1, THG takes a look at what homeschoolers have been up to as they talk to the Straits Times, and as some participated in June's Debate Camp. Find out who THG interviewed in A Chat With... and The Roving Reporter.

So come along and vote with us as THG conducts a little poll to predict the next President. Test your body's fastest respond rate in Reaction Time, and write your best story to send it in to "Write-a-Fairytale" Contest.
