Congratulations to Adrienne Ford who won our first draw!
As we do not have membership fees, there is no requirement for an annual renewal of your NCHENZ membership and it is easy for us to lose track of members who change address or stop home educating. We have a legal requirement as an Incorporated Society to have an accurate membership database. With this in mind, we have decided to ask all members to confirm their details and also confirm that they still wish to be a member of NCHENZ.
Anyone who has not confirmed their membership by 5pm 31st August will have their membership cancelled and will be removed from the NCHENZ database.
All current NCHENZ members at 5pm 4th August went into a prize draw to win one of two Bud-e reader packs worth $149.95 each, kindly donated by Whitcoulls. A further prize draw of all members will be held at 5pm 31st August. The prize pack includes:
– Bud.e Starter Pack, $49.99
– Wobbling Whiskers Book and CD, $24.99
– Sneaky Snake Book and CD, $24.99
– Oh Me Oh My Book and CD, $24.99
– Brachio Book and CD, $24.99
Winners who do not have any early readers in their family can choose to nominate another member for the prize pack and instead receive a $50 credit towards NCHENZ member services.
NCHENZ membership offers you several benefits. We are the only national home education organisation in NZ. We are a neutral group with no philosophical, political or religious affiliations. NCHENZ is run by an elected Executive Committee who are all home educating and volunteer their time for the benefit of NZ home educators. NCHENZ meets regularly with the Ministry of Education and Education Review Office, and reports back to members on the outcome of these meetings. We advocate on behalf of home educators who have difficulties with either of these organisations, and also generally in cementing home education as a valid educational choice. As a member of NCHENZ you also receive a range of discounts to educational programs and resources.
Please note: The prize pack will be posted to the winner at a NZ address only.
