Our Enviro-schools and Whangawehi Catchment group workshops this year have been an opportunity for our tamariki to learn in more detail what is happening on their back door step. This year we have been accumulating points from these workshops with active involvement, thought provoking questions, assisting younger students, interacting with key/skilled people, following up tasks completed to the best of our ability. I had great delight in announcing that Jack Delaney and D’Magio Karangaroa will soon be going for a 3 day excursion to Portland Island. Helen Jonas (DOC) is heading to the island soon to do conservation work and the hard work of these 2 students means they will be accompanying her. It is the opportunity of a lifetime and I know they will act as conservation ambassadors for Te Mahia School. Keep us posted boys!
