On Monday 27th August senior students from Te Mahia school came down to Whangawehi to help plant another 100 trees and undertake some much needed weeding. The sun was shining on this beautiful day and the students weren’t lacking energy too. The small forest which was started 4 years ago already had some trees growing over 3 m tall. The students interplanted trees to help thicken this forested area. They checked their blue penguin boxes and were sad to see them uninhabited. Helen Jonas mentioned that 5 of the boxes established on Waikawa has residents with one Penguin siting on 2 eggs…very encouraging news.
Well done to Te Mahia School and a big thank you to the school parents and helpers for supporting the day.
