What People Said About ENGAGE 2015….

“Thank you for organising and running Engage 2015. It was a great refresher and refocus for us and I feel that we will implement and mull on the things talked of during the conference to enrich our relationship with God, our marriage, our relationship with our children and our homeschooling journey.”

“Thank you so much for such a wonderful conference.  We had not expected to be so blessed, but we loved it and found it so refreshing.  It was such a treat to be there.  Even the younger children enjoyed it (as an example, 9 year old said afterwards, “I love conferences”).  Thank you so much for everything you put into making this such a fantastic event.  May the Lord reward you.

“Congratulations on the awesome conference you and your team pulled off this weekend…really appreciated the tips on
discipling our children and hearing the many wonderful speakers”.

Home Education Awareness week 19-24 October 2015

Home Education Awareness Week (HEAW) 19-24 October 2015

Home Educators all over the country use this as an opportunity to do something special to raise their profile locally and develop a bit of positive public relations. This helps in gaining the movement a bit more credibility, especially when applying for grants or discounts with resource suppliers, or for admission to tertiary institutions or gaining help and advice from schools and perhaps even the use of some of their resources. And of course the benefits would be examined by more people, thereby bringing more people into the home schooling movement and your local support group.
