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!

Otago Museum trip: Mo Tatou - The Ngai Tahu Whanui Exhibition

12:30—2:00pm, Wednesday 2 February

Nicola's booked SHEAF in for a workshop focussing on Maori Technology, in connection with the current Mo Tatou exhibition. Here’s the museum’s blurb:
How did Maori adapt to the colder New Zealand climate? How did they produce warmer clothing? Answer these questions and many more as you analyse the superb range of taonga in the Tangata Whenua Gallery and discover the technology that was needed to produce these Maori treasures. Clothing, jewellery, tools, toys and games will be the focus as we explore the technology of Maori.
Costs are now $3.50 per child.
Email Nicola to book
