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!

Observatory trip

It's nearly Matariki again, so a trip to the observatory seems to be in order. According to Amadeo (everyone's favourite science communicator), very early morning is the best time to view the mid-winter constellations. This may put some people off, but is anyone interested in meeting at the observatory at around 6 or 7am, on a Saturday or Sunday morning, some time in June/July?

If so, please email Nicola your preferred day, then she'll check that the observatory is free and that Amadeo can meet us there. He'll let us know exactly what time to meet once we've confirmed a date.

The cost will probably be $2 per child, $4 per adult or $10 per family.

Edited to add: trip now confirmed for 6.30am, 18 July. Make sure you book with Nicola so you are advised of any cancellation/postponement
