Adopt a Plot

Room 1 have committed themselves to adopting a plot on Limestone Island.  This will be weeded and planted but the long term expectation is that all our children become involved and get the chance to develop this area.  We also hope that families visit Limestone Island and become involved in the care and maintenance of our plot.   Limestone Island is very important to Whangarei Heads as it is the nursery for the Kiwis that are eventually released at the Heads.

Rooms 1 and 2 are also involved in tree planting at Urquharts Bay, along the stream that our school has a long term commitment to clean up and develop.  They are planting a range of natives including flax, manuka, kanuka and pohutakawa along the stream under the guidance of Adam Willetts the Bream Head Ranger.

We have also been fortunate in receiving funding for a trapping project in and around school. The funds will be spent on rat and stoat trapping, pest tracking and weta hotels.

KUA TAE - OUR SCHOOL SONG

Our School Song, Kua Tae was written by Laurence Berry, and Cathy and Danny Tuato'o and the Youtube clip was made by Billie Berry before she left our school for High School.
