Philippine Homeschool Conference 2012

Last May 19, I attended the Philippine Homeschool Conference 2012. Though I was only able to attend the morning sessions, I was blessed to see all those people who attended the conference. It is always encouraging to see that you are not alone in the homeschooling journey. I was also glad to have met some of the homeschool moms who I only know by name! It was actually thrilling to meet them. Sadly,I wasn’t able to get a photo of them.

There were many booths and I was glad to see many schools participate too. At least, homeschooling families are able to choose which homeschool provider they want to enroll in. There were a few who sold curriculum materials. I was actually hoping to see more.

Of course, Bo Sanchez and Debra Bell were both inspiring in their respective talks during the morning sessions. I hope that the succeeding homeschool conference would include more sessions about homeschooling methods and curriculum choices. I know that we can search for them online like looking for this link online, but hearing someone discuss the methods and curriculum choices would be beneficial not just for the first time homeschoolers but for those who are homeschooling for a number of years already.


  1. I’m hoping to homeschool again. If not my children, maybe I could do it for other kids – the less fortunate, just like one mom I watched on TV some time ago. It’s something that’s been on my mind. Wish I had known about the Philippine Homeschooling Conference and attended.

    • i didn’t realize you were in manila already!? anyway, hope to see you on the next conference or event from HAPI šŸ™‚

  2. That was such a great day! I am so encouraged by how many are homeschooling and continue to do so. Bravo to you, Chris! Hope that the beginning of the school year finds you and the kids doing well. šŸ™‚

    • Thanks to HAPI for bringing all of us together! šŸ™‚ I hope that they would have another conference but more geared for those who are already homeschooling šŸ™‚

  3. Had I know you’re also going, I would’ve met you already. Maybe next time! šŸ™‚

  4. Kudos and hats off to you for homeschooling your kids! I don’t know how you do it! You must be gifted with so much patience! I really admire what you are doing! By the way, I found your site through my childhood best friend’s – Michelle of My Mom Friday – blog!

  5. i was planning to attend this conference but decided against, i cannot be in Ortigas at 8am since I am coming from outside Metro Manila…reading about homeschooling moms are absolutely inspiring + i would really love to do the same to my little man šŸ™‚

  6. Yes, Iā€™m hoping to homeschool again too. Work is hard than study.
