This is SUCH an encouraging video to watch – the opening session of the Homeschool Curriculum Online Summit – you won’t be disappointed Mums & Dads – enjoy and be refreshed and blessed!
I encourage you to attend one of these meetings if you can. I just spoke with the Principal Todd, and we now have before us a “never-been-seen-before” opportunity to tailor the education of our children so they can most effectively serve God’s purpose for their life.
Here’s the info below, and the Home Schooling NZ website is here.
Flexible New Qualification Framework for Christian Homeschoolers
Home Schooling NZ has been serving the Christian homeschooling community in New Zealand for the past 33 years. Until recently, they were utilising the A.C.E. Certificate framework to enable students to gain recognised qualifications.
In July of last year, HSNZ’s overseeing body (the Christian Education Foundation Trust – CENZ) applied to Universities New Zealand -Te Pōkai Tara for recognition of their own university-entrance qualification, in order to free families from undue A.C.E. control.
This qualification has recently been approved, giving Christian homeschooling families the opportunity to now tailor qualifications at any level to meet each student’s specific wishes and requirements, including courses from whichever curriculum and whichever supplier(s) they wish.
The current Principal of HSNZ, Todd Roughton, will be visiting the Canterbury/Otago regions to share about the background to this new possibility, explain the options now available, and answer any questions in relation to it.
Meetings will be held at the following locations. All are welcome.

Here is the first of a 3-part interview I did with Scott Brown (Director of the National Centre for Family Integrated Churches) whilst our family were in the States last year (yes I know it’s taken a while to get it ready!).
In this short video, Scott gives some godly advice from a grandfather’s heart, about the role of grandparents towards their grandchildren. This is something that doesn’t get spoken about that much, so it’s great to have this content to glean from. More videos from this interview coming soon…
