THE TRUTH IS there is no such thing as a “christian” homeschool. However, what we have are Christians who educate their own children in the home in very personalised ways. And no two homeschoolers are alike, because no two families are the same. But homeschoolers who choose to have their children educated at home share very similar convictions.
Join us to hear how these homeschooling parents educate their own children on the road less traveled.
RM10 per adult parent. RM5 per child above 12 years. Free for children under 12 years.
(Payable at the venue)
To register, please email names of all attendees (parents and children) and include your children’s ages to: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com
WHO WILL BE SHARING
I am 23 years old. I am currently helping my dad with admin work in the office as well as serving actively in church as a youth leader. I have 2 younger siblings as well as a 2 year old Golden Retriever named Simba who frequently teaches me patience.
I’m 22. I play the piano for my church and occasionally lead its worship. I like to read and do things on the computer and occasionally write weird things. I was in university studying Communications for a while, but took a break. I also teach English on a part time basis in Frontier Learning Centre.
I am 15 and have been homeschooled for seven years. I just completed her second year of high school (Grade 10) with The Potter’s School, an online Christian school, and I aim to attend a Christian college in the US. I enjoy photography, videography, and researching issues related to apologetics.
Amy Wan Ratos
I am mother to Lea 14 and Mayern 12 who have been homeschooled from birth. I am a freelance corporate trainer who made an early choice not to be a tiger mom nor a kiasu mom to motivate and train my children up in God’s way.
David and Sook Ching Tan
We are the founders of HOMEFRONTIER, an informal network of Malaysian Christian families who homeschool their own children in the home. We are the parents of 2 adult sons, Ethan (24) and Elliot (22) who were both educated entirely at home until they went to college.
Alfred and Stacey Chong
We are parents to 17-year old Jemima and 16- year old Nathanael. Our journey was born out of necessity as Jemima was born with severe hearing impairment. However we also felt called to homeschool and are convinced it’s the best way to raise our children.
There will be a Q&A at the end of the presentations.
LIMITED SEATS. PLEASE SIGN UP EARLY. If you have always wondered what is homeschool and how parents educate their own children, this dialogue session is for you. If you are already homeschooling, here’s an opportunity to network and find encouragement as we learn from one another.
