Living, Laughing and Learning Conference with Diana Waring

September 11th and 12th, 2009

Venue: Hornby Presbyterian Community Church, 27 Amyes Road, Hornby Christchurch

Curriuclum vendors and other resources will be available for sale during the conference.

Unlocking the Mysteries of the Middle Ages
Join Diana for a whirlwind tour through one thousand years of colorful characters and world changing events. Beginning with the fall of Rome and continuing all the way up to Gutenberg’s printing press. Seat belt use suggested–you’re going to move fast!

Saturday 9am – 5.30pm

A variety of encouraging and practical sessions with Diana and other experienced home educators.

9am The Well-Kept Secret of a Biblical Education (Specifically for Christian families)
How much have the prevailing culture and our own school experiences influenced our views on education, even in homeschooling?  This powerful message will provide you with a foundational and scriptural framework for understanding education — the content and the means — from a Biblical perspective.

10.30am Beyond Survival (General Audience)
A transparent description of the beginning days in her homeschooling, including the struggles and failures she experienced as she unsuccessfully tried to create school at home. Learn how she went from “barely surviving” to finding great joy on the journey with her children. Diana brings experience with her own children for over twenty years, as well as insights gleaned from homeschooling families around the world.

4pm Actively ENGAGE Learning & Actually ENJOY Learning! (General Audience)
“How do I get my kids to finish their school work?”  The deeper question is actually, “How do I get my kids to be self-motivated?”  We will look at specific ways to encourage and assist our children in developing ownership of their education.  We must learn the critical difference between controlling and directing; pushing and releasing; coercing and facilitating.  It is the master teacher who says, “I can not teach you how to do it, but I can help you learn to do it.”

Workshops will include:

Diana and Bill                Making the most of teen years at home. Encouraging session for teens

Bill Waring                    The Homeschool Principal; an encouraging discussion time for Dads

Barbara Smith               Avoiding Burnout. Strategies to identify and overcome burnout.

Barbara Smith & Ngaire Allan   Preparing for an ERO review; putting your best foot forward.

Lennie Harrison Early Reading and Writing Skills. A practical session aimed at 4-8yrs.

Meat for Teenagers (directed at parents only, and Christian content)

Linda Gage                    Character Training. Focussing on the heart while they learn and grow.

Time Management. Practical tips for balancing the house, the family, life and everything else.

Early bird cut off dates for the Diana Waring Conferences in New Zealand and Australia

The Early Bird cut off date for most of the Living, Learning and Laughing Conferences with

Diana Waring  is 31 July

Book in early

Bill and Diana WaringDiana Waring is well loved for her bright enthusiastic presentation of history. Extremely happily married since 1979, Bill and Diana homeschooled their three children nearly twenty years. The Waring children (now all grown) were the proving grounds for all the concepts and encouragements Bill and Diana teach in real-life examples of the wonders of home schooling!

They will be visiting Australia  and New Zealand in  September and October this year. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to hear an inspiring experienced home schooler.

Diana and Bill have worked in speaking and writing for the Christian home school and private school community for 18 years. Through their business/ministry Diana Waring Presents (formerly, Diana Waring—History Alive!), they have met and talked with home schoolers in 46 states, half of Canada, and three other continents.

The curriculum for world history study Diana wrote, beginning in 1994, has been growing and expanding. She is in the midst of a five year effort to update and expand the research and presentation of the material. She is well known for her rapid-fire history recordings and workshops, but is also appreciated for her workshops and books of home school encouragement, like Beyond Survival and Reaping the Harvest.

The Warings Mission:
“To serve families by encouraging, equipping,
and educating in an entertaining way.”

Isaac Botkin

Director & Associate Producer

Isaac Botkin

A group of 15 Christian home educating fathers is coming from the USA to investigate New Zealand as a possible place to which to re-locate their families.

They are eager to meet with other men living in New Zealand to learn about the country, employment and entrepreneurial opportunities, financial institutions, health and welfare issues, how home education works here and what the home education community is like.

Four public meetings are planned in order to facilitate this, and each meeting is also featuring a formal talk by either Geoff or son Isaac Botkin. These should be of particular interest and benefit to New Zealand Christian home educating fathers, as well as mums, to enhance and encourage their own vision for what home education can and will do for their families, the Church and society as a whole.

The Botkin family lived near Snells Beach and then in Christchurch for six years, making it their business to meet and get to know as many leaders as they could in the Church, the media, economics, politics, home education, etc. Do strive to come to whichever of their meetings you are able.

Isaac Botkin has worked on the cutting edge of production technology since 1995. He has created both classified material for the U.S. Department of Defense and animation for mass media seen on The Discovery Channel, CNN, NET, CBS World News Tonight, National Television of New Zealand, and on broadcasting outlets in Europe and Asia. Television and filmmaking credits include creative director, co-writer, editor, visual effects supervisor, assistant director of photography, art director, and associate producer. His work as a supervising animator has brought him into professional association with the world’s leading visual effects professionals, including the team at Weta Workshop. He is currently a director at First Pacific Information Technology Ltd in New Zealand. Isaac is the author of the book Outside Hollywood.
