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!

Weekend Reading - Canterbury Home Educators

This week we travel northwards a little and have a nosy at the Canterbury Home Educators' website. The section that I thought would be most relevant to us was their FAQs page, covering such burning issues as;
"How do you go about writing an exemption?",
"How do home educated teens get into university?" and
"I have a child who has special needs and is ORRS verified. Can you please tell me what resources my child is entitled to receive now that we are home educating?"

It's a lovely little site. My one criticism is that if you find little jingles annoying you may wish to turn your sound down, as they have a little tune that plays every time you load a new page. I know I found it irritating :~)
