Warehouse Stationery – Get NZ Writing

We’re encouraging Kiwi children to handwrite these school holidays, because handwriting helps them learn, create and feel great.

To do this, we’ve created a cool selection of postcards instore so children can write a message and send it to someone they love in New Zealand for FREE.

You’ll find them instore. So come down to your local Warehouse Stationery and get writing!

Home Education documentary “Class Dismissed”

From NCHENZ

Hi all,

At NCHENZ we love being the bearers of great news so here’s some more!

We’ve purchased the screening rights for the recent Home Education documentary “Class Dismissed” and are offering it to each region if they’d like to organise a viewing for their local group or region.
Our member groups will have priority but this opportunity is open to all.

Member groups = $20 + $10 refundable bond. (Heavily subsidised)
All other groups = $48 + $10 refundable bond. (At cost).
This includes a return postage and packaging.

We have ONE DVD which cost NCHENZ $380 to purchase. If this DVD is damaged or lost we will not be able to justify replacing it so we would expect any damage or replacement to be covered by the group responsible.

A couple of conditions:
-as screenings are limited we would encourage your group to include/invite as many people as possible to attend.
-acknowledge and make available some small fliers with information about NCHENZ (that we will provide).
-and that if you are making a profit from the event, that you consider donating a portion of the profits back to Jeremy Stuart, the creator of Class Dismissed. (NCHENZ is happy to facilitate this).

Email me at info@nchenz.org.nz for further details.

Regards,

Meredith
