Some Coming Events for Home Education during 2013

Greetings, here are some of the home education events in New Zealand over the next few months.

I have a family reunion over Easter in Wanaka. So I am planning (a bit late) a tour around the South Island. If you would like me to speak in your area please get back to me soon and I will see if I can fit it into our schedule. At this stage most events are already confirmed and others hopefully will be confirmed over the next few days. So please keep checking this link for updates.

Then don’t forget the HEART retreats where Mums get pampered.
