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!

Recommending the Science Workshops

Here's a personal recommendation from Karen regarding the upcoming chemistry workshops - and please contact Nathalie very soon if you want to book and haven't done so yet - see here for more details.

From Karen:

I spoke to Nathalie a couple of days ago and, although she has had registrations she has been surprised at the lack of numbers. Perhaps it’s just the time of year that she is looking for us to look ahead into the new year and register now with Christmas being on people’s minds but I thought it might be that that people, who attended last time, may think these workshops were a re-packaging of the experiments that she did last time she was here. Last time we found brilliant and I only heard positive feedback about, from those that attended, BUT these workshop are all new material. For those who have children 11yrs or over this is a great opportunity – she’s a lovely lady and the workshops where well organised and crammed full of experiments (most of which we can’t do at home) and learning! Last time, as I understand it, almost all of the practical from the NZ Science/Chemistry syllabus for years 9,10, &11 were covered. Though it’s not cheap I thought it was well worth it.
