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!

World Math Day - 3 March 2010 (but begin competing now)

(via hefnet)

Free to join!

World Maths Day was designed to encourage student participation in a fun and engaging online maths event. It involves games of live mental arithmetic that students around the world play against each other. Each game lasts for 60 seconds and students can play up to 500 games during the official event which has already begun, earning points for each correct question. Students who answer the most questions appear in the Hall of Fame.

Would be great to see some Home Educators in the Hall of Fame. (There are no New Zealanders or Home Educators on the top 50 at this stage - lets change that. An Australian is winning at the moment).

Sound fun? Why not head over and take a look?

See the new World Maths Day 2010 video with students from host city Johannesburg, South Africa inviting the world to participate in 2010!
