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!

Matariki Observatory trip

From Nicola:

The date for the observatory trip has been tentatively set for Sunday 18 July, as we see the Matariki constellation quite a bit later down here than in the North Island. I'm waiting to hear back about the time, but it should definitely be early enough that people with Sunday commitments should still be able to get to them (i.e. probably about 6am). I hope this suits everyone who has let me know that they're interested. Also, the cost will be the same as for the regular observatory hours - $3 per child, $5 per adult.

Edited to add: trip now confirmed for 6.30am, 18 July. Trip will continue, rain or shine!

Location: Beverley Begg Observatory - on the far side of Robin Hood Park. Cnr City Rd and Ross St. Park on Ross St and walk across the park. Some clever soul gave us a tip to wear gumboots - the park can be muddy on a dewy winter's morning/evening.

Note: there are no toilets at or near the Observatory (!)
