Homeschooling is something I have always considered for the little man, in fact, I have amassed various homeschool online resources. Even now that he is enrolled in traditional school, I have never closed my doors to the possibilities of homeschooling him in the future.

That is why I am delighted to inform you that I am giving away 2 tickets for the Philippine Homeschool Conference 2015, happening this Saturday, 17 October, between 8am-5pm at the Samsung Hall and SMX, SM Aura, Taguig City.

Homeschool Association of the Philippine IslandsManila Workshops and The Learning Basket bring you the largest homeschooling conference this year – “The Philippine Homeschool Conference 2015: Ready for the World!”
