Homeschooling. I know it’s not easy. Trust me, I tried! When I only had 2 kids, I tried homeschooling them. I can’t say that it’s not for me, ang nangyari siguro sa akin, kinulang ako ng resources. I can’t even remember kung meron na Philippine Homeschool Conference noon. That’s the good thing about homeschooling these days, the support is overflowing!
And if you’re thinking of Homeschooling your kid/s Philippine Homeschool Conference is worth checking out:
Philippine Homeschool Conference 2016
Philippine Homeschool Conference is an annual conference brought to us by the Homeschool Association of the Philippine Islands (HAPI). It is the only national conference for Filipino homeschoolers. It provides an opportunity for homeschooling families to connect with one another.
This year, HAPI in partnership with Philam Life, and with Educating for Life as its event organizer, hopes the conference will truly be a venue where parents can be renewed, recharged, and inspired as they fulfill their roles as their children’s primary educators.
Philippine Homeschool Conference will be on October 22, 2016, from 7 a.m. (opening of Registration) to 6 p.m., the conference theme for this year “From Roots to Wings: Homeschooling through the Stages.”
5 Reasons Why You Should Attend The Philippine Homeschool Conference 2016
1. Superb Keynote Speakers
Four keynote speakers who are well known in the local and international homeschooling scene will inspire parents to provide their children with “roots”, equip them to lay a strong foundation for them, and give them “wings” to help them reach great heights. Kasama si Bo Sanchez sa keynote speakers!
2. Helpful Breakout Sessions
Nagsta-start ka palang bang mag-homeschool? Or matagal ka nang nagho-homeschool? Or maybe you are just curious about homeschooling and want to know how to get started? The 9 breakout sessions lined up for parents in different stages of their homeschooling journey are perfect for you! (PHC 2016 participants get to choose 3 sessions to attend.)
3. Relevant Raffle Prizes
Everyone loves getting gifts, especially those that are significant to one’s homeschooling journey and family life! The PHC 2016 organizers bear this in mind as we prepare raffle prizes that are relevant especially to homeschoolers – specifically, scholarships from the homeschool providers shown on the above picture! For sure matutuwa ang mga friends ko na nagho-homeschool dito!
4. Exciting Expo
Aside from the inspiring and empowering talks, the conference will also feature an expo with vendors servicing the homeschooling community. So yung mga mahilig mag-shopping diyan, kahit hindi kayo nagho-homeschoool, punta na kayo sa conference! (You can enter the Expo area for only P50 if you don’t plan to attend the talks.)
Contrary to popular beliefs that kids who are homeschooled are not sociable, they actually are! The conference will be a chance for you to see this, and of course, the parents who will attend will also be able to make chika with one another!
The PHC 2016 registration fee of Php 1000 per head is inclusive of access to the keynote talks, breakout sessions, and the Expo area, which features different products and services that can benefit homeschooling families and even non-homeschoolers who want to enrich their children’s education. (Registration is open online until October 15, after which walk-in participants will need to pay P1200.)
