Wai is the lifeforce of all living beings. We are mostly made up of water and we are reliant on it to survive. Our freshwater has carved out our landscape. It is millions of years old and keeps recycling itself and being cleaned by natural processes. And yet, our freshwater is in serious trouble, impacting all the species that rely on it. We all need to look at how we use water wisely and treat it respectfully so it can remain clean and plentiful for generations to come.
On Friday 24th March, Rooms 1&4 Friday headed to our local waterway, Puketoki Reserve, to enjoy a day investigating the health of the water. The field trip allowed our learners the opportunity to observe the top of a pristine stream and look at the creatures that live in it.
By working alongside Bay Conservation Alliance, our learners will discover how incredibly unique New Zealand is, gain an insight into many of the conservation challenges in New Zealand, and learn a set of practical conservation skills. We support the well-being of nature everywhere – our forests, streams, wetlands, harbours, estuaries and coastal areas as well as our own backyards.
