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!

Diary Dates - 5 July 2010

We had a lovely bonfire on Waikouaiti Beach yesterday, and the kids had great fun roasting sausages, toasting marshmallows, digging tunnels, cuddling pet rats, and running up and down the beach, playing hide and seek in the pitch-black night like mad things! As usual, they were immune to the cold, and the fire kept the wimpy, old adults quite cosy, too. Thanks very much to Annemieke for organising the bonfire, and we look forward to another one soon :-)

There’s nothing scheduled this week for our Wednesday meet-up, but if anyone’s interested in tennis or indoor bowls, there will probably be a good number of SHEAF families at both activities this Tuesday.
