Friday 9th September hosted an opportunity for Room 1 & 4 learners to head out to I’Anson Reserve (Te Puna) on a field trip to the wetlands. Through in-class learning, a field trip and a follow-up activity, our learners have been provided with a fantastic opportunity to learn about the wetlands. What a super day of learning (freshwater bug identification, pest plants and wetland health assessment). Our tamariki are so lucky to be involved in a hands-on experiential conservation education programme.
Our learners are kaitiaki (guardians) of our future. Our learners are being encouraged to protect and nurture our environment so that in turn our environment will protect and nurture us. Our younger learners in Rooms 2 & 3 have an exciting programme ahead of them as they move through the school.
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.
