Finding the balance
“Homeschooling works just fine with their karate commitments, I would say that it actually helps them to become better without the pressure of missing out on lessons, missing out on school, working extra to get the tons of homework done, and so on. Both Radu and Isabela train intensively, a minimum of four trainings a week, that is most nights, besides their lighter training at home.
“Homeschooling provides us with the chance to organise our schedule so that they are not too tired or too busy with everything they do. We manage to create a balance between their sports, their school and their other activities (leisure, friends, extended family etc). There are plenty of national and international competitions that they compete in, some of them requiring us to leave on Friday morning or return on Monday evening, so there are no problems with having to explain why they missed school or their homework is not done. We rarely do schoolwork during weekends, because with Wolsey Hall we do not concentrate on quantity, but on quality. They have other courses outside Wolsey Hall as well. Wolsey Hall offers us the possibility to pursue our children’s interests and support them in achieving what they desire.”
