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!

National Council of Home Educators

Forwarded by Nicola

NCHENZ is currently looking for some new committee members to help out.

If you’re a member of NCHENZ or would like to become one, see below for more information—I was on the committee for two years and it wasn’t as daunting as it sounds! Stacey is currently on the committee, so if you’d like to know what NCHENZ have been getting up to recently, she might be the person to talk to. Otherwise, go to www.nchenz.org.nz to find out more.

A rallying call from Penny Bilton, NCHENZ Co-ordinator:
Dear Members, We have some opportunities on the committee with members having resigned or soon to finish homeschooling. Meetings are held once a month via SKYPE conference using landlines. Some of the tasks available are;
1. minutes secretary for the meetings
2. someone to coordinate with Tarnya our webmaster re things to be put on the website
3. hosting the meeting - you need fast speed broadband internet with a SKYPE account - the cost will be reimbursed
4. Liaison with and updating contact details of HE support groups throughout the country
5. Publicity and promotion
6. Government liaison/ monitoring offical websites, NZQA, MOE to keep up to date with their activities.
7. Any other contribution you can think of!!

We need more of the enthusiasm that the new members on the committee this year have brought. With all the changes happening in the educational scene affecting homeschoolers we need NCHENZ to be an effective and pro-active,

If you can help please contact me on info@nchenz.org.nz
Many thanks, Penny.
