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!

Whare Flat Festival of Music and Dance

From Annette:

Most years our family camps out at Whare Flat over New Year for this event. We always have a fantastic time. There is a huge range of “folk” music (with much that might be considered fringe folk) from New Zealanders and overseas artists. There is non-stop music all day as well as in-strument and dancing workshops and workshops for children. There are opportunities too at blackboard concerts for “amateurs” to perform (take special note you budding ukeleists!) New Years’ Eve there is a barndance.

There is a wonderful safe family atmosphere with other activities such as bush walks and glowworms and a swimming hole. It is somewhat pricey, but the quality of the music can be outstanding, especially in the evening concerts. There is no extra charge for camping, but there is the cheaper option to just attend for a day or one evening con-cert etc. The cost for adults is $130 (or $110 if you register before December 17). School-age children accompanied by an adult are $45 each and preschoolers are free.
