Immy: Unschool

Hello, my name is Immy and I’m 8 years old. I want people to understand that you don’t have to go to school, I don’t! I think that you don’t have to go to school because you can learn yourself and from the people around you. I’ve learnt how to swim and climb trees and draw amazing pictures and I think anybody could if they had the time to figure it out.

I like that I can see my mummy and daddy and sister a lot. Also my cat! We play outside a lot, cook together, play minecraft, draw. While I do all that, I get to figure things out by myself. I can figure out whatever I want, I don’t have to wait or do anything which I don’t want to do.

I don’t know how to read everything yet but the things I can read I figured out, I know I can figure out more! It is exciting to be able to do it myself. Sometimes I don’t even know how I’ve learnt something but I have.

I have lots of friends, don’t worry about that! There’s lots of other people unschooling too so they’re my friends. I meet up with my friends and I play and it’s fun. Nobody tells us how we have to play, we figure it out ourselves.

We found a leaf which has hydrophobic, my friend’s mum said what its called. It repels water. There’s lots of cool things you can find in the world.

I’ve never gone to school but I have gone to kindy and it doesn’t seem very fair. You can’t see your mummy and you have to do what they’re said and I wouldn’t like that.

It is fun to unschool, give it a try!
