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!

Orokunui trip

Via Selina-Jane:

I received a letter form Julie Wiel today, and she has asked me to pass on the following information.

"I'm organising a trip to a native bird sanctuary later in the year. I plan to visit it myself first so I can gauge the set up and meet the educators who run the schools programme.

It will be a cost of $5 per child and adults free. You can take prams but there are places it may be harder to push them. The usual tour takes 90 mins, I'm unsure at present how long the schools tour will be. As I find out more info I will let you know, but at this stage I would like to know who would be interested.

It's at the Orokonui bird sanctuary, near Waitati, they have many species of our native birds, incl. kaka chicks, 33 saddlebacks, tui's and bellbirds, etc.

they have a lovely looking cafe and facility pictured in their brochure so perhaps it could be made into a day trip.

I spoke to a man who works at Orokonui and he suggests Spring would be the best time to visit the bird sanctuary.

Any who are interested can either text me or ring me on home phone."

Please note Julie is unable to receive contact via email. If you are having trouble finding Julie's contact information, contact us via the SHEAF email address and we'll get back to you.
