  • First Philippine Homeschool Convention This September 22 in Taguig
  • For the first time ever, Educating for Life (EFL) presents the 2018 Philippine Homeschool Convention (PHC) this September 22 at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premier in Taguig.

    With the theme “On Fire”—following the quotation commonly attributed to the poet William Yeats “The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled”—the upcoming convention is a call to all Filipino homeschoolers, parents and children alike, to make a difference in a world that seems unfilled of hope, empathy, and compassion.

    Since 2014, EFL, formed by four homeschooling moms, has been organizing events for all individuals or groups that are into homeschooling. They believe that their approach to education is characterized not only by filling children’s mind but aiming for character building that goes beyond academics. More than that, EFL strives to guide the children to find what fuels them, igniting the passions and vocations with a hope that they find their meaning and purpose in life.

    Meanwhile, this year’s Philippine Homeschool Convention features inspirational speakers—both international and local—and seasoned homeschooling parents who aim to rally all homeschoolers to “Light the Fire”, “Fan the Flame,” and “Spread the Fire” of homeschooling within their families and communities.

    Among them are homeschool student-turned-homeschooling veteran mom and advocate Cassandra Shepherd from New Zealand/Singapore, homeschooling dad, bestselling author and sought-after motivational speaker Jayson Lo, veteran homeschooling mom, author, and speaker at major U.S. homeschool conventions Dr. Teresa Moon from the U.S., and homeschool coach and author of the first homeschooling book in the Philippines Nove-Ann Tan.

    Moreover, the PHC, similar to conferences in previous years, will have an expo of more than 50 merchants featuring educational toys and materials, tutorials, and classes that aim to support homeschoolers, and even non-homeschoolers.
