Welcome to the Home Education Network Canberra And Southern Tablelands (HENCAST) website. HENCAST is an eclectic and inclusive, secular network of home-educating families based in Canberra and its surrounds. Our members come from all walks of life and practise a broad range of educational approaches. We have members with children home educating from Pre-school to year 12.
We meet weekly, during the year following the school terms, and occasionally in school holidays. Our weekly meet ups can be for a: picnic, educational excursion or other social activity.
HENCAST acknowledges all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Traditional Custodians of Country and recognises their continuing connection to land, sea, culture and community. We pay our respects to the past, present and future Elders and Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we meet. Sovereignty has never been ceded. It always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
