Te Mahia Enviroschool
A fortnight ago we had an enviroschool house group day. Tamariki were split into house groups where they had 6 different workshops to complete for the day. These workshops engaged tamariki in thoughts and ideas about communication, tree care, pest control, vision mapping, planting design and operational work, all related to the Whangawehi Catchment.
Your tamariki may have told you, but if they haven’t we are running a house group competition, where the winning house can win a trip for two children to head over to Waikawa (Portland Island), to help out with some conservation work. Every time we have an enviroschools day house groups are awarded points for their participation at each activity, contribution of ideas and engagement in group discussions.
A massive thank you to Whaea Jenni, Whaea Janna, Mrs Bowen, Nanny Rae, Matua Arthur, Nick and Nanny Kath. They all put so much time and effort into our enviroschool work and we are very grateful!!
