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

I've just added a few dates to the section at the end of this list, to fill our Wednesdays till the end of term. Once again, I'm waiting on confirmation from the Edgar Centre, but everything else is straightforward. The Intriguing Dunedin Street Walk scheduled for Sept 8 is apparently a very gentle stroll around St Clair - almost completely flat, and only about 1.5 hours, so we should be able to squeeze in a play at the park as well.

I've also added two more Big People's Night Out dates for this term, one on a Tuesday and one on a Thursday. Hopefully this will mean anyone who can't make a Wednesday evening might be able to join us for some coffee and cake (or banana crème brûlée, pear crumble, rhubarb cheesecake...).

every Monday during term time, 11:00 - 12:00pm: Swimsation lessons; 12:00pm on: lunch and socialising. If you are interested in joining the lessons, contact Swimsation at Moana Pool to book. Otherwise, just turn up!

every Tuesday, 12:30 - 2:00pm approx: tennis at Logan Park tennis courts. Contact Ted for more information.
