Time: 12:30pm – 2:30pm

This is a HASCA supported parent run event facilitated by Nina Lawgun with contributions from other experienced home educating parents for those currently or considering home educating their children through the teen years via the NCEA pathway.

The aim of this event is to offer support, encouragement and personal insights to home educators as they navigate their way through NCEA with their high-school aged students.

Nina is a home educating parent who is passionate about sharing information, guiding and encouraging students on their home educating journey and supporting families as they navigate their way through NCEA, particularly those choosing to do so via Te Kura.

Nina is particularly experienced and knowledgable about the assessment requirements and content of English, Art and Art History and in supporting students with learning challenges. She also works closely with Todd Roughton, the principal of Home Schooling NZ utilising NCEA based content to meet the CENZ Certificate requirements thus providing a broad variety of options for home educated teens.

The other parents who will be sharing during this event have experience in and a wealth of personal insight into other core subject areas such as maths and science and in tailoring their students NCEA program to achieve their post-secondary goals
