Soon Koi Voon (KV) and Chong Wai Leng – husband and wife team who are founders of Learning Beyond Schooling (LBS) and proud homeschoolers of their 3 children have graciously accepted our invitation to come over to Penang and give an exclusive talk on homeschooling and how parents can help foster creativity and innovation at home with their children.

    Hi KV and Wai Leng,

    Greetings from Penang and looking forward to meet both of you in person come 31st October. However, I may not be taking part as I am hearing impaired. I prefer my wife to fully concentrate and learn what she can during the workshop. As such, if it’s not too much of a hassle, I would appreciate if you could kindly provide extra notes that I can read later.

    Thank you.

    Hi, Thomas! I would be glad to take down notes and provide a transcript for you. I am also setting up a blog where we will start with some questions that will form around certain themes. You can follow both the pre-talk information and match that up with the transcripts post-talk.

    In return I hope you can help by volunteering to help us babysit 😀

    LBS……..I just volunteered to be your “reporter” for the event. How? Can? Can? (Raises hands….teacher, call me!)

  4. Thomas says:

    Hi Shalom! That’s very kind of you! Sure, I can help to babysit but I dunno whether I can do a good job. I’ve got 2 active Godzillas of my own ha ha ha!

    Shalom to you too!

    I am from the Penang Down Syndrome Association and have just registered for your seminar on 31 October. I have a Down Syndrome daughter and have recently decided to try a home school programme for her and another DS child. We hope we are not too late to register and there are still spaces for 3 of u involved in the programme.



  6. Shalom says:

    Hi Daphne,

    I trust that Loh from Pemancar House has contacted you and given you the details for payment.

    Good news that we have improvised on space and can now take in about 20 more participants.

    Do spread the word to other parents of both Down’s Syndrome and regular kids who might be at a loss for alternatives to state-education. We all start our journey somewhere and perhaps yours and others could start here.


  7. Shalom says:


    The correct contact for this event is is just the catalyst for this event :D.

    You can also subscribe to their blog (:D) at their blog of the same name on wordpress.
