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!

Holiday hikes—and tennis too!

From Ted:

We had a lovely, albeit cold, hike up Mt Cargil yesterday with a very impressive turnout. Anna has a couple of photos she said she would attempt to get to you for the newsletter.
The folks on the hike all expressed an interest in doing more hikes over the summer so I picked some dates (all Wednesdays) and picked some hikes in the area. I was being a bit selfish because these are hikes I want to do but I would love to go with others on hikes of their choice. They are all 3 to 4 hour hikes with some being more strenuous than others. The 10:30am start proved to work well so we will go with that. We plan on going on the hikes even if others aren't available so I don't want anyone to feel obligated. We can meet at the trailhead and hike with any who want to join us. If anyone is interested they should email me and I will keep them on a list then email directions and a description of the hike the week before. All the hikes come from "Day Walks of Dunedin and Coastal Otago" by Bill Wilson and are named as in the book. I've put the corresponding hike # but I have an older edition so the numbers may have changed with the newer editions. Here are the hikes and dates I picked so far:
  • December 29th: Hike # 3, Sandfly Bay-Sandymount
  • January 12th: Hike #40, Trotters Gorge
  • January 26th: Hike #45, Outram-Lee Stream-Taieri River Walk
  • February 9th: Hike #50, Taieri Mouth-Millenium Track
Our family is also planning to keep up the Tuesday at 12:30 tennis date throughout the summer. Again, we will be there, unless the weather is poor, so please come if you want to play but don't feel obligated. I will send an email if we are not going to be there for some reason other than weather.
Thanks, Ted
