NZ-wide speech competition

Greetings

We are writing to let you know about a new NZ-wide speech competition we have started for Year 9 & 10 students.
This could work well for Home Schooled students.

The purpose of this competition is to encourage students to make a speech on any social justice topic, with the hope of increasing the understanding of social justice issues amongst NZ students.

This competition is being run by a partnership of justice focussed NZ organisations, including Tear Fund, Stand Against Slavery, Effective Altruism NZ & Kings Trust.

The competition is very simple –
– open to any Year 9 & 10 students
– speech can be on any social justice topic
– filmed by phone or any other easy method – submitted via our website http://justtalk.org.nz/students/
– entries close 10th Dec
– judged by independent judges
– first prize of $1000 for student + $1000 for charity of their choice + $1000 for their school
– 5 spot prizes of $100 each (to encourage participation)

There is a pdf of a poster/flyer advertising this competition available for download at http://justtalk.org.nz/schools/

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Best wishes for the rest of this year

Regards

Home Education Awareness Week (HEAW) 9 – 14 October 2017

Home Education Awareness Week (HEAW) 9 – 14 October 2017

Home Educators all over the country use this as an opportunity to do something special to raise their profile locally and develop a bit of positive public relations. This helps in gaining the movement a bit more credibility, especially when applying for grants or discounts with resource suppliers, or for admission to tertiary institutions or gaining help and advice from schools and perhaps even the use of some of their resources. And of course the benefits would be examined by more people, thereby bringing more people into the home schooling movement and your local support group.

For more information on HEAW go to: http://hef.org.nz/2007/home-education-awareness-week/

Please share this information with other home educators and home education groups you are in

An email from Joanna about Tales2go:

 I would like to start a group subscription to Tales2go. I was in this when I lived in Australia and it was a fantastic resource. A homeschooling group membership costs $US10 per year, instead of their individual membership rate of $US100. While in Aus our family listenend to heaps of books while doing chores, travelling, for bedtime stories when my voice was hoarse etc. The catch is that I need 50 families.
 https://www.tales2go.com/. As soon as I get 50 interested people I will get a code, then all interested people can subscribe with their own email address and the code. Thanks!
