Lots of second hand books for sale

I have lots of books for sale. I need to reduce our books by at least a half.  These are books we have collected over 36+ years. Some books ex Red Cross Book Fair (some resued from recyling) and ex library books. I am sorry that the books are in no particular order. These are just as we come across the ones we feel we can sell and can’t take to Tasmania. My 14 year old is typing up all the lists for me.

Last day updated 04/03/15

Every day there are fresh book lists being added here.

As books sell they are being taken off the lists,  so all books listed are still available. Heaps of books have sold so far – heaps to still sell

Mostly books are $1.00. Smallest order that I will post will be $5.00 plus postage. You can join lists together. Please state which list book comes from

Click on the links below:

If you see a ? by the title of a book it means it is in the process of being sold.

NCHENZ Survey closing this weekend – Please fill it out asap

Updated 2/3/15: Survey now closed

This survey is closing this weekend. If you have not already filled it out then please consider doing so asap. The more people who take part in the research the better the study will be and the more help NCHENZ can be to the home educating community.

From NCHENZ – National Council of New Zealand

The NCHENZ would like to hear from all Home Educators not just members.

The 2015 Home Education Survey

February 2015

As you may remember we ran our first Home Education survey in November 2013.  We chose to do this because there were very few studies of home education carried out in New Zealand and therefore very little understanding of the breadth and depth of the community.  This continues to be the case. (From HEF: The Home Education Foundation via TEACH Bulletin did a few survey’s back in the ’80s and ’90s but there have been none in the last 15 or so years except for NCHENZ’s survey back in 2013.)

We are once again hoping to gain a good overview of our existing NCHENZ members; your aims, your concerns and, of course, some basic statistics.
The gathered results may be used to promote the positive aspects of home education, as well as to dispel any myths or misunderstandings held by others in the wider community.  It also informs the direction and issues the NCHENZ committee address within our advocacy role.

Please note that this survey is anonymous.  We are not collecting any identifiable information about respondents with one specific exception which will become clear when you reach the end of the survey.  In this instance it is totally voluntary to answer this question.
Individual responses within the survey will not be shared.  Collated information can and may be shared.  Please see how the 2013 information has been handled by clicking on this link to the Survey Summary pdf file.

As you are not identifiable, we ask that you respect the intent of the survey, and fill it in as accurately and fairly as possible.
The survey should take you approximately five to ten minutes to complete and, hopefully, the questions are self-explanatory.  Please complete it at one sitting as it is not possible to return to alter your responses should you exit part way through. The survey will be available until 7pm on the 22nd February, after which time we will be closing it to further entries.

You are welcome to forward this email on to home educating friends who are not currently members of NCHENZ for them to contribute to the survey.  There is a link at the bottom of this email that allows you to do this.

If you have any questions regarding the survey, please feel free to contact us by email.

On behalf of the National Council of Home Educators New Zealand,

NCHENZ Executive Committee


In the early days of Home Education in New Zealand Craig organised a number of surveys through Keystone and TEACH Bulletin. It was good to get as many home educators as possible to answer the surveys. These surveys were very helpful.

I don’t think any surveys have been done for at least 15 years now except for the NCHENZ 2013 survey.

There have been a couple of indepth studies done in the last 10 years.

Beyond Homeschooling NZ 2013 by Jenny Barkley

and

PhD study on Home Education in New Zealand

It would be wonderful if as many people as possible filled out this anonymous survey being done by NCHENZ.

TEACH magazine surveys are not online at the moment

Our movements

Last week I signed a contract for the property in Tasmania. My daughter is buying some of the land off me.

Downes Jr proposed housespot and shared drivewaysRed lines my new property,

dark blue lines Josh & Charmagne’s old and new property

light blue lines Josh’s parents and his brother’s property.

The lady in Tasmania wants the last date for settlement to be May 1. In order to get the funds across to her I need to settle here April 21. I have been talking with moving companies and they need to survey here 6 weeks before that. Which is like in a couple of weeks. So this is my timeline at this stage:

4_Tawa_St_sm_13

I now have a signed contract on this property. Trusting for it to go unconditional this coming Friday DV.

25 – February go room by room to see what we want to keep, sell, junk, give away. Books I have sorted that are for sale so far: http://hef.org.nz/resources/books-secondhand/. I hope to add to these lists each day and try to keep them updated regularly.

February We are expecting to get the next Report back from MoE (not sure what will be involved in these next steps yet – will publish them asap)

Once our home goes unconditional then I need to bring home from storage a large amount of stuff to again sort on what to keep, sell, give away and toss

3 – 10 March Movers want to look at what I want to take and give quotes (Anyone know of any good moving companies?)

20 April Kaity leaves Wellington Airport for Hobart

20 April Container arrives and is filled

21 April Settlement on our home 4 Tawa Street

20/21 April cleaning 4 Tawa Street

22 April – 30 April (3 of us needing a place to stay) End of year accounts (GST report, letter and receipt to givers and Charities Commission)

1 May Settlement on 23 Cordwell Road, Tasmania

 

1 – 23 May Available for workshops/conferences in North and South Islands. Let me know if your area would like me to visit. Would be travelling with Grace (9).
