Building sustainable communities

In 2020 we became a Green-Gold Enviro-school. This means that our work on sustainable education was recognised as being authentic and embedded across the school and community. 

 

Our students are actively involved in sustaining and progressing beyond Green-Gold status as we regularly  reflect on the guiding principles of the Sustainable Schools programme.

 

The guiding principals are:

  • Empowered Students

  • Sustainable Communities

  • Learning for Sustainability

  • Maori Perspectives

  • Respect for diverse People & Culture

Environment

Our extensive enviro gardens, including a plant nursery are a special feature of our school that we are particularly proud of and it reflects our commitment to the Enviro Schools programme. Lunch time clubs like, Stream Rangers, Whakarina Fun Group, Pest Control Group and Garden Group offer our students authentic experiences to take part in meaningful clubs that support long standing enviro projects around the school. Sarah, our Forest Kaitiaki teacher, works with classes and small group projects to further advance our bush regeneration project and sustainable practices.

 

We are always looking for help and support to keep our Enviro Programmes and activities alive. If you have skills you would like to share or would just like to lend a hand with our programmes please contact the school office.
