Philippine Homeschool Convention 2019: There is No Place Like Home

The first homeschool conference/convention I attended was in 2014. Joining it is one of the best decisions I have made in our homeschool journey. As a newbie then, I was pumped-up to learn from those who have been doing it for years and I was not disappointed. Two pregnancies and deliveries later, I joined the 2017 homeschool conference at BGC. It was refreshing to be with a community who shares the same lifestyle we are in. Now in 2019, I am excited to attend the Philippine Homeschool Convention at SMX SM Aura with the theme "No Place Like Home" on September 7.

Two of the reasons why we are still homeschooling are because we want to have a close-knit family and instill our values to our kids. We believe that there is no place like home when teaching our children and we are reaping the benefits of that belief. It is not easy to be intentional parents, raising and teaching them, but it is extremely rewarding. And I invite parents to bravely take this responsibility and equip ourselves for this lifestyle by learning from other homeschooling parents at the homeschool convention. Whether you are a newbie or just exploring this lifestyle, overwhelmed at homeschooling, or needing an encouragement, this homeschool convention is for you.

Convention Speakers

This year's line-up of international and local speakers will leave participants inspired, encouraged, empowered, and equipped to begin or continue their respective homeschooling journeys with even greater passion than before. 

Among them are homeschooling dad, bestselling author and sought-after motivational speaker Jayson Lo, homeschooling mom and founder of Homeschool Singapore Dawn Fung, veteran homeschooling mom and president of the Homeschool Association of the Philippine Islands Dr. Donna Pangilinan-Simpao, long-time homeschooler, veteran speaker, and author Marla Taviano, and homeschool advocate, speaker, and blogger Michelle Padrelanan.

There will be a plenary session that will feature homeschooling parents who will share about their journeys along with their respective children: Dennis and Thammie Sy, Jay and May Palacpac with their son Pablo, and David and Frannie Daez with their son Yuan.

In the afternoon, there will be different breakout sessions geared towards “equipping” the participants for their individual homeschooling journeys. The speakers are all homeschooling parents who wish to help parents be better educators for their kids, emphasizing the truth that there really is “no place like home.”
