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 - Erasing the Fear of Homeschooling

Hi all, this weekend reading link was suggested by Kathrin. A most excellent discovery.

Heather Sanders, a guest blogger at the Pioneer Woman blog, talks about her initial decision to homeschool, the almost overwhelming fears that accompany that decision, and how she worked her way through them. If you're at the start of your home ed journey, you may find some comfort here - even if it's just the reassurance that someone else knows your pain! And if you've been walking this path for a while now it can be helpful to remember how incredibly scary the whole thing was back at the beginning. Also helpful for those recurring panic attacks that beset us all from time to time :)
