Art afternoon


Hi Folks!

We are having an art afternoon at our place.  We will make a collage mural to hang at Allen Bryant Rest Home.

All ages are welcome, but we will be focussing on younger children and working at their level.

Date: Wednesday 19th June
Time: 1pm
Venue: 32b Providence Drive
Bring
  • an art shirt
  • coloured paper (if you have any - plenty has been donated)
  • afternoon tea
  • glue sticks/pva
  • scissors (make sure you label them or tie some wool around the handles for ID.  Our house has a scissor-eating monster.)

Travellers from afar (or anyone!) are welcome to bring their own lunch and eat here before hand.

Look forward to seeing you!
Kim

HomeSchool NZ Visit to your area


Dear Homeschool Family,

 

Each year we endeavour to get around the country and catch up with as many families as possible. We do this by holding get-togethers in key locations within a certain area. Obviously, we cannot visit every single small town, but with very few exceptions, we do hope to be somewhere this year that is no more than 30-40 minutes away from your home (and hopefully closer).

 

These get-togethers are very useful for a bunch of reasons:  they keep folk up to date with the latest news and developments, families meet other homeschooling families in their area and develop networking relationships, all sorts of questions get answered, older students get to hear and ask questions about potential career pathways and we all get to put faces to names. For new families, these meetings also serve as the "face-to-face" training meeting mentioned in your enrolment material.

 

Significantly too, the Ministry of Education knows that we do this "in-service training", and it is one of the reasons for the confidence they have in HSNZ and why they view and treat us as a respected part of the educational establishment.

 

It is a substantial logistical operation getting travel schedules organised and we do need people to work with us in this. It is also costly, and so it is disappointing when we get to an area that is within easy reach of numerous families only to find that hardly anyone turns up.

 

Please……wherever humanly possible, do make the effort.

Kind regards

Westland Riding for the Disabled

Hi folks!

I trust your first term has gone well.
I am writing on behalf of the Westland Riding for the Disabled (RDA).  They are desperate for volunteers.  Volunteers help with horses and riders.  They need to be over 14 yearls old and physically capable.  Volunteer times are flexible.  RDA Westland is open from 10am to 5.30pm Monday to Thursday.

This is a great opportunity for helping in the community and getting some horse experience.

Westland RDA is on Facebook or you can contact Sue 0273037912 or Jane 03 755 8069 or 02102718810
