Attention Homeschooled Filmmakers! We want to feature your short films in the upcoming Homeschool Film Fest 2019 taking place during the 2019 MACHS Homeschool Conference. So pull out your camera, load up your editing program, and head out to the film set. It’s time to get started on your own short film!

If you have already made a film, or perhaps want to dig one out that you made years ago, please send it to [email protected] (subject line “Film Fest”).

 

Board Game Bonanza – 5:00 – 7:00 pm Friday, March 22nd in Teen Track

Get ready for the biggest group of people playing board games and meeting new friends in the history of homeschooling! Bring your favourite games and join the party in Teen Track during the Friday supper hour. There will be a Dutch Blitz tournament and Four-on-the-Couch, as well as all the board games you’ve always wanted to play with your friends!

 

Keynote Prelude6:30 – 7:00 pm Friday, March 22nd in Prairie Hall

Come and enjoy a talented musical performance by local homeschoolers just before the Friday Evening Keynote! This is a great opportunity to hear what some fellow homeschoolers have been practicing, and to relax and take in the Conference atmosphere.

This year, the Prelude will feature the Tuckett Family Fiddlers, who will bring many fun fiddle tunes that have been preserved and passed down through the generations of Canada’s rich cultural heritage.

 

2019 Homeschool Graduates Recognition Ceremony

We have enjoyed having around 30 graduates be recognized for the past few years, and the number is always growing! (Click here for more information on how to participate.)
