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!

Term 3 Wednesdays - comments and suggestions?

Term 3 is rapidly approaching, but the details of our Wednesday meet-ups are not completely sorted yet!

There will be a museum workshop on the first Wednesday of term 3, then Palin has suggested that everyone brings marbles to our next meet-up for a huge game. Kathrin is looking at booking a court at the Edgar Centre for this. We've met there before, and they were really open to kids bringing bikes and scooters, as well as playing tennis or basketball, or pretty much anything. There was a charge of $2 per child, which will probably be the same this year - we'll confirm these details once Kathrin has heard back.

Someone also suggested a games day, so Claire has kindly offered her home for us to meet in for the third Wednesday of term. Bring your lunch and any board games that you and your children would like to play. Email Claire if you're coming.

We'll do another walk from the Intriguing Dunedin Street Walks series - this time it will be Walk 5 from Book 2 (the final walk in the blue book). These can be bought from various bookshops or borrowed from the library, or Nicola can scan the walk if anyone would like to have it emailed to them, as they are quite interesting to read through before actually walking them. This walk is supposed to take about 2 hours (so that's 3 for us), and will be quite hilly in parts so be warned! It also travels along part of Leith Valley Rd, to Nichols Creek - we think this is a 100km no-footpath zone, so be doubly warned!! Or we might just skip that section, in the interests of preserving lives....

There are a few other things scheduled, but we still have 25 August, 8, 15 and 22 September free, so if you have any ideas, please let Nicola know and she'll book them in. Otherwise, it will be more of the autocratic same - parks and walks!
