What To Expect at the 2016 Philippine Homeschool Conference

Are you curious about homeschooling? Do you want to explore homeschooling for your family? Have you started your homeschooling journey? Are you interested to shop for educational tools and materials? Let me share with you what you can expect from the upcoming Philippine Homeschool Conference happening this October 22!
Presented by the Homeschool Association of the Philippine Islands (HAPI), the annual Philippine Homeschool Conference is packed with information and inspiration for people who want to learn more about homeschooling, are just getting started, or need “tools” to improve their homeschooling experience.

We began homeschooling in 2014 and I've attended my first conference that same year. Sadly, I missed the PHC last year. This year, I am looking forward to the breakout sessions, just like the first time coz I've learned so much from the resource speakers. They shared effective and creative strategies that helped me improve in teaching my son, and got a lot of ideas on actual projects to prepare and what materials to use to help in our studies.

My son recently graduated from grade 6. He is now grade 7 and we are on our third year of homeschooling.  I must admit, I am still struggling with being a parent teacher and I badly need more ideas to help make study time fun for my visual and kinesthetic learner. I know I will gain so much at PHC 2016 with their lineup of speakers and interesting topics to help parent-teachers like me.

PHILIPPINE HOMESCHOOL CONFERENCE 2016 bears the theme “From Roots to Wings: Homeschooling through the Stages”
This year's PHC hopes to meet the needs and address the concerns of homeschooling families at different stages – from learning more about homeschooling, getting started, and staying the course perhaps even up to the end of high school.
