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!

From Ted:

My kids have both expressed interest in learning to play tennis. After researching lessons for a bit I came to the conclusion that we couldn't afford them, especially when we were not sure whether they had a true interest. I have played tennis off and on for more than 40 years (I can't believe I can say that) and I decided that, even though I am far, far from a professional or a teacher, I could at least get them started in the sport.

We are going to the courts in Logan Park at least once each week to hit the ball around, get some exercise and learn a little about tennis in the process. I would like to open this up to anyone else who may be interested. Adults or kids who know the game are welcome to come and share what they know and pair up with others at their level to play. Adults and kids who have little or no experience with the game are welcome to come and learn. I am more than happy to have folks drop kids off. I'd be happy to supervise.

The only fee would be in access to the tennis courts. You can either pay as you go ($4.00/visit) or buy a pass. A pass for an individual is $50.00/year from the date of purchase for unlimited use. A family pass is $100.00/year from the date of purchase for unlimited use. Beyond that you would need a racket, tennis shoes and tennis balls (they sell used but still good balls at the courts for a dollar each). Obviously winter is nearly here and it will get cold but with a hat and gloves its not difficult to stay warm with all the running around. We have not settled on a day yet but we want to do it during the school day (maybe before or after lunch to be followed by lunch and play or just play). I am open to Ideas. I am also open to twice each week.

Let me know if anyone is interested or has any questions. You can reach me at bluekombi @ hotmail . com (without the spaces) or call me on 472 7852.
