About School Mum

School Mum is a website full of tips, tricks, advice and fun for School Mums by School Mums.

There are thousands of experts who claim to know the best thing you should be doing for your child but depending on who you’re listening to and what you’re reading it can differ from one extreme to the next.

This website is not about experts it is about stories.  Stories of school mums and their experiences working out school life, their child’s development and all the crazy busyness that comes with that.

Come and read stories, share your experiences and join us on the journey of SCHOOL MUM!!

For those of you who have been a part of our School Mum community for a while you would have noticed how we grew very quickly and it all just kind of happened .

Liss has 3 children and works with School Mum one day a week.

He spent many of his earlier years as a youth worker and now works as a primary school teacher. He has been teaching in the classroom for over 8 years. He is also married to School Mum and is the father of their 3 beautiful children.



You won’t see or hear anything about Mel on the website but she helps us manage the Facebook page and all of the questions that get sent in …  that is a full time job in itself haha.
