Philippine Homeschool Conference 2015: Ready for the world!
This is a press release from the Homeschool Association of the Philippines.
MANILA, Philippines - This October 17, the Homeschool Association of the Philippine Islands, Manila Workshops and The Learning Basket bring you the largest homeschooling conference this year – “The Philippine Homeschool Conference 2015: Ready for the World!”
As a precursor to the “Global Home Education Conference” (GHEC) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in March 2016, two well-respected homeschool advocates and speakers from the United States will be gracing the event as keynote speakers:
- Michael Donnelly, Director for Global Outreach of the Homeschool Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) and Secretary of GHEC 2016,
- Rachael Carman, mother of 7 and best-selling author and publisher of popular homeschool science curriculum Apologia.
Rachael’s husband, Davis, the President of Apologia, will be speaking in the conference.
Sought-after speaker and homeschooling advocate Edric Mendoza, host of On The Money and homeschooling dad of 5, and Chinkee Tan, motivational speaker and wealth coach, will be speaking as well.
Definitely bigger than the past years’ homeschool conferences, “Ready for the World!” will be held at 3 venues at SM Aura Premiere. Keynote talks will be held at the Samsung Hall, while smaller workshops and the much-awaited homeschool expo will be at the SMX Convention Center.
An All Access Pass - to go in and out of all three venues, including the exposition venue - is at P1000 per person for the early bird rate until October 4. Aside from the inspiring talks, there will be a huge expo of the various learning providers, educational tools, toys, books that will help homeschooling parents and aspiring homeschooling parents in their daily lives. This expo will be open to the public for a minimal amount of P50 per head, but is already included in the all access pass.
