On Saturday, 30 August, Vedic Maths Forum South Africa exhibited at The Cape Home Educators Expo. Visitors came from as far as Citrusdal to learn what is new on the homeschooling front in South Africa and see what learning resources are available. Exhibitors ranged from more established organisations to the smaller emerging businesses entering the education market. In conversations with the parents who visited the stand – it became clear that in some cases, homeschooling is not a matter of choice but the necessity when children are unable to cope in a mainstream schooling environment due to difficulties in learning, concentration and motivation. It is a challenging task for a parent to undertake and much support is needed for the parent as well as the child.Parents were enthusiastic about the virtual classroom environment through which we facilitate our classes. It is affordable and convenient with the benefit of having an experienced Maths teacher tutor the child at his/her own pace. They were also amazed at the Vedic Maths techniques and saw how it would motivate and enrich their children, especially those who were already performing at an above average level.
