With the support of Tammy Bruce, Wild about New Zealand, our students are provided with the opportunity to help turn the tide for our native wildlife. Simple equipment and methods help our students to find out about the pests and native wildlife living near us. A visit to Puketoki Reserve on Tuesday 26th February was first on the list for 2019. How clean is our stream? The results gathered from the mornings investigations clearly indicated that our local reserve has a healthy stream with good water quality.
How healthy are our local streams? A question our Whakamarama School learners are always keen to find the answer to. Friday 15th February hosted opportunity for Room 1 students to work alongside Tammy (Wild About NZ) learning about where our water comes from (visual and interactive session) and healthy stream vs unhealthy stream activities.
What is a “sense of wonder to us?”
