Welcome to our blog!

Welcome to the SHEAF Blog.

Despite our best intentions, we're not great at keeping this blog updated with our latest happenings. We are, however, definitely an active group, meeting at least once each week during term time.

If you'd like to make contact with Dunedin home educators, our contact details are in the column, below right.

We send out a weekly email newsletter with details of upcoming events, courses, gatherings etc.

You can also find us on Facebook (page is visible whether you're a facebook user or not)

Have a look through this blog to see the types of events we have organised in the past. You'll also find links to other blogs and articles that we find useful or informative, on the off-chance that you'll appreciate them too :~) (Look for these more general blog-posts under the label "Weekend Reading")

If you're not currently on our email list and would like to contact us, please email us at the address you can see in the column on the right. We'd love to hear from you!

Tarore and Her Book

The following email came through the hefnet list. I'm happy to act as a local ordering person for Dunedin, if anyone else would like this book. In order to keep postage down, the Bible Society would prefer group orders, rather than individual ones. Apparently supplies are diminishing, so if anyone wants the book, please let me know by Monday Dec 7th, and I'll send in an order that evening. This is a free book about a small slice of New Zealand's history.

cheers, Stacey

I am contacting you to ... let homeschoolers across New Zealand know about a free resource being offered to all primary-aged students by Bible Society New Zealand. It is a small storybook entitled "Tarore And Her Book", written by well-loved author Joy Cowley, which tells the story of young Maori girl Tarore who lived in the 1830s near Matamata, whose Christian witness changed the lives of her people throughout Aotearoa as her copy of the Gospel of Luke moved around the country. It is an inspiring story and an important part of our national history.
I am a home educator myself, and would like to inform as many homeschoolers as possible about the availability of this book for their children... Bible Society are happy to post out the books to groups of families within the regions, but are unable to post individual copies to homes due to the costs involved...
Please check out the website www.tarorebook. org.nz if you need further information. Finally, the response to this offer by primary schools has been enormous and the number of copies available is rapidly diminishing, so time is of the essence!
Thanks, and God bless.
