Important Home Education Events coming up this week in Auckland (please circulate):
Homeschool Variety Show FRIDAY 10 JUNE 2011
Rehearsals continue, instruments are tuned, and voices warmed up all ready to go for the Homeschool Variety Show. These talented home educated young
people have worked very hard to prepare an entertaining evening's performance just for your enjoyment. Take an early dinner from one of the numerous nearby eateries and come so you can offer your support to these youngsters from the Home Ed community. This family friendly programme is suitable for ALL ages so bring along your children, parents and grandparents and enjoy a short, fast paced show with more than a few surprises.

it, these workshops are now even more unmissable! There really is something for everyone.
The workshops run parallel to all the Keynote sessions from the Science by Design Conference so you have the option of either hearing Dr Wile or attending any workshop that suits you.
