TREE PLANTING DAY - FRIDAY 30TH MAY 2014

Today, our families and community members joined us to carry out the planting of native trees at the top of our gully. Every student planted a tree which has been labelled with their name. Yes it was raining so everyone put their coats on, grabbed umbrellas and enjoyed the wonderful experience. The trees were sponsored by; Families, Taupo Bungy, Green Taupo and Taupo Native Plant Nurseries. The planting was followed by a BBQ which was sponsored by Vet Plus Taupo and M21 Butchery. Senior classes budded with our juniors classes for the day. Thanks to the marvelous pre-planning by Management, Roz and Jono, the whole project ran very smoothly.

Our planting also coincides with Arbor Day 2014 and fits well with this terms classroom topic of “Bioshere” - the layers that make up our environment.

Students had fun weeding the Brain Maze as well as collecting more cabbage tree leaves for firelighters - we’ve sold over 100 this week. With the colder weather now here, we moved the Worm Farm into the shed for the winter months.
