Win a Scholarship to Worldview Academy!

MACHS has been blessed by a generous gift that we would like to pass on to a Manitoba Home School youth aged 13 and up. The World View Academy has donated a scholarship to one of its 24 Worldview Camps in 2019 (locations include Minnesota and other states). The scholarship covers all camp costs with the exception of transportation and has a value of $745 US. A list of camps / date and further information including an information brochure can be accessed at http://www.worldview.org/

Many of you will remember Bill Jack who has spoken at our MACHS conference. Bill is a faculty member with the World View Academy. Also a number of homeschooled Manitoba teens have participated in these camps in the past with very positive experiences.

At Worldview Academy Leadership Camps, junior high and high school students, ages 13 and up, are challenged to think hard about their faith. They are treated like real people who wrestle with real issues—and who need answers that match the real world. Each camp features 20+ hours of lively classroom sessions and discussions, which guide students to better understand servant leadership, apologetics/evangelism, and comparative worldviews.
The Worldview Academy experience is unlike any other. Students are taught by inspired teachers, challenged by creative activities, moved by meaningful worship, and welcomed into a community of life-long friends. Students join groups of the same age and gender for the discussion of the big ideas. They are led by college-aged small group leaders from across North America who have dynamic personal relationships with Jesus Christ and the life skills and spiritual maturity to lead students in discussions throughout the week. The six days are filled with laughter, tough questions, biblical answers, and a deepening hunger for Christ.
If you would be interested in attending a World View Academy Camp and applying for this scholarship opportunity, the MACHS board would ask for the teen to write a letter of application (1000 words maximum length). Identifying who you are, some information about you (age, interests, and family), tell us about your homeschool journey so far, and explaining why you would like to attend camp. We would ask that these be sent to [email protected] by April 22, 2019.

Message from MACHS regarding Manitoba Education and Training K-12 review

Message from MACHS regarding Manitoba Education and Training K-12 review

Many of you received an email  from Manitoba Education and Training regarding the provincial K-12 Education review that will begin soon. MACHS will be working with other organizations in encouraging a consistent response from the home school community. A clear and united voice of homeschool families will help in positively influencing the review recommendations.

MACHS is preparing a strategy to ensure that the voice of Manitoba home educating families is strong and clear. The message from MB Ed indicated
“The Manitoba Commission on Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education is asking for your thoughts on the future of our education system. Your views and opinions will be an important part of the commission’s comprehensive, independent review of our province’s elementary and secondary education system. This is the first review of its kind in decades.”

We are awaiting details on how the process of providing input will work, such as where in person meetings will be held to hear submissions.
MACHS will be sending you, in the coming days, a briefing document. This will provide your family with sample emails and notes to help you in sending written input along with preparing to speak at in person meetings.

We would ask you to be in prayer as we prepare to make our voice heard as Christian home educating families across Manitoba.
