But they can share with you what may have motivated them to go further. Some in science, some in law, some in computer science, some in advanced language studies. Certains en science, certains en loi, d’autres en informatique, d’autre en études linguistiques avancées.

They relied on something else. On what? They'll be happy to share it with you.

Pourquoi les pères sont-ils souvent moins impliqués que les mères? Quelles sont vos craintes ou vos difficultés, envisagées ou vécues, face à l'école-maison? Voilà le genre des questions que nous tenterons d'élucider. Les mamans sont les bienvenues (seulement si ce n'est pas pour espionner les papas 😉).

The fathers’ role in home-school (and at home) is likely bigger and more important than we think. Our inherit God-given capabilities can really build up a child/teenager and equip them to tackle life’s trails in the future. But it starts with listening to a reading exercise, running some math problems, and quite frankly just being present. I will share with you my home-schooling experience, talk about some inner struggles, and in the end hope to encourage you at any stage in your journey

Education has changed over the last few hundred years and some of us think that is has not been for the better. C.S. Lewis said “We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.” Join me to discuss classical education and what it looks like to turn around and go back as the most progressive way to educate and equip your children for their future.

School at Home VS Homeschooling

Dr. Brian Ray

Language : Translated from English to French
When: Saturday, June 13, 2:30 PM
Speaker : Brian Ray
Q&A session :
In French and English

Structured vs. unstructured, homeschooling vs. unschooling, teaching at home vs. homeschooling, home education vs. institutional school at home. What’s the difference? Who cares?! Everyone should because it all depends on your values, beliefs, and worldview. Further, do you want to be stressed out, or on an adventure with your children? Dr. Brian Ray will give you insight, theory, practice, and research statistics from his 37 years of studying homeschooling and his wife’s and his parent-led home-based education of eight children. Do you want to be stressed out trying to reproduce someone else’s --- be it an “expert educator” or your friend the homeschooler --- vision of school at home, or delight in and be blessed by all of the advantages, opportunities, and beauties that are systemically a part of homeschooling of which institutional school teacher can only dream? Dr. Ray will encourage, equip, and inspire you toward the latter.

In this seminar, we will search out the secret of the true meaning of contentment and how it is that we can practically work towards this ever elusive paradise in a home that is lived in 24/7 and on a limited income. Looking at our goals and expectations, our priorities, our stuff, our money, our relationships, we will set out on a journey that will prepare us to not only endure the trials of everyday life as a home educating family but to thrive and to be truly content.

Language : English
When : Friday June 19, 4:00 pm

Education has changed over the last few hundred years and some of us think that is has not been for the better. C.S. Lewis said “We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.” Join me to discuss classical education and what it looks like to turn around and go back as the most progressive way to educate and equip your children for their future.

Café-papas :  "Comme ça, ta femme veut faire l'école-maison"Pascal Denault

Langue : Français
Date et heure : lundi 15 juin, 20 h 00
Animateur : Pascal Denault

Cet atelier est destiné aux papas qui ne sont pas certains s'ils veulent suivre leur conjointe dans l'aventure de l'école à la maison et à ceux qui ont des interrogations ou n'ont aucune idée quant à leur rôle dans ce projet. Cet atelier se veut un lieu d'échange dans une atmosphère décontractée où l'animateur tentera de démystifier le rôle du père dans l'école-maison. L'homme a-t-il un rôle particulier à y jouer? Pourquoi les pères sont-ils souvent moins impliqués que les mères? Quelles sont vos craintes ou vos difficultés, envisagées ou vécues, face à l'école-maison? Voilà le genre des questions que nous tenterons d'élucider. Les mamans sont les bienvenues (seulement si ce n'est pas pour espionner les papas 😉).

Coffee-Break for Dads: The Essential Business of Fathers in Homeschooling

Thomas Gruetzner

Language: English
When: Tuesday, June 16, 8:00 pm
Facilitator: Thomas Gruetzner
Q&A period
: English

The fathers’ role in home-school (and at home) is likely bigger and more important than we think. Our inherit God-given capabilities can really build up a child/teenager and equip them to tackle life’s trails in the future. But it starts with listening to a reading exercise, running some math problems, and quite frankly just being present. I will share with you my home-schooling experience, talk about some inner struggles, and in the end hope to encourage you at any stage in your journey

About Zoom

Vulnerabilities have been identified in recent days in the media regarding the level of security and confidentiality of the Zoom videoconferencing tool. An analysis has revealed that Zoom remains the only realistic videoconferencing tool as other tools do not meet basic fundamental criteria for the type of presentation that will take place.

Actions to be taken with respect to the presentation

  • – A password will be sent along with the Zoom link.
  • – During the presentation, the “webinar” function will be used, i.e. all cameras, microphones and screen shares of the participants will be automatically disabled.


Mesures qui sont prises par la compagnie ZoomActions taken by the Zoom company

  • As reported in an article on April 3, it appears that many of the problems identified have already been or are in the process of being resolved.
  • The leader and founder of Zoom published ablog on April1st in which he lists a list of issues that have already been resolved and indicates the steps being taken to resolve the remaining issues as quickly as possible.
