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!

Canterbury Earthquake

From Nicola:

After the terrible earthquake in Christchurch last week, everyone seems to want to do something to help our northern cousins. Here are a few links I’ve come across recently, not all of which involve giving money, as I know this can be a struggle for many of us at times.
There were some great ideas and links in the latest (free) email newsletter from NZ Gardener magazine. If you don't subscribe, have a look at their website - they allow open access to past issues once the new newsletter is mailed out, so the Feb 25 newsletter will be available this Friday.

There are many crafty auctions being set up to raise funds for Christchurch—here are a few I found via Facebook Ginger Pye blog
Adopt a Cantab - looking for volunteers to connect with Cantabrians who just need a friendly ear on the phone to talk to.
Quake Escape— matching up those offering accommodation with those who need it (also Accommodation for Earthquake Stricken Cantabrians)
Otago Quake Help— collating Dunedin offers of accommodation
BabyJam — will donate 50c for everyone who signs up for their free online goodie bag offer (for parents of children 0—10 years)
CurrClick - have put together a fundraising package for NZ Red Cross: I’ve just had a quick look at this bundle and it seems to include mostly downloadable products, with a Chrsitan perspective. From Tanya Burge via NZHomeEducators@yahoogroups.com: “CurrClick and several publishers have teamed up to raise funds to aid those affected by the Christchurch earthquake. We have a new bundle with over $234 of great products available now for a $20 donation. All donations will go to the New Zealand Red Cross.”
