Home Education Workshop, Sat. 18 October 2008
9-5pm at Harmony House, 541Ruahine St., Palmerston North. $15 per person or couple or $5 per session.
Explore the many facets of the growing movement to educate your own children at home, providing a curriculum tailor-made to fit your children’s interests, abilities and learning styles. You can be in charge of what values they do and don’t get exposed to, how fast they advance and the levels of work and discipline that you are convinced are best.
Long-time home educating parents of eight, Craig & Barbara Smith plus former teacher and now home educator Erena Fussell, who have a combined total of 51 years’ experience teaching their own children at home, will explore legal and curriculum issues, burnout, motivation, vision, practical issues and more. A range of resource material will also be on display from the Home Education Foundation, LearnEX, Geneva Books, Dayspring Christian Academy, Issacharian Books, plus second hand items.
