Student ID

In light of truancy and youth crime measures, homeschoolers are warned against children and young people wandering around inner city CBDs and other malls during school hours.

Whangarei, Rotorua, Hamilton – I’m sure there are other centres where signs are up in shop windows and ‘mayoral launches’ are announcing schemes to reduce crimes. [2012 – “Kid-free” CBD has become the catch-cry in libraries and central cities. This discriminates against home educated children.]

I offer here an ID card on a .doc page that can fit 8 x cards/children’s IDs:

  • Put in your child/ren’s info’ text, overtyping what is there. Keep the same number of lines or card will get too big.
  • Add your child’s passport-styled headshot photo. Click photo in text box > insert picture > from file > choose from your files > insert.
  • Click on text box (on right hand side) and right-click > “format text box” > size > 4 H x 3.5 W > OK. Adjust size of child’s photo.
  • Delete or create the number of children IDs needed.
  • Print on to white card in colour ink.
  • and then laminate the 8.5 x 5 cm (5.5 x 3 inch) card – or put into plastic sheath.
  • The child carries this if leaving your house. No fear, no stress – just a way to help your children explain why they’re not in school as the officer may expect them to be.
