EPro8 and Rural Cross Country Success!

I’m writing this at the end of two very successful events - ePro8 and Rural Cross Country. What a fantastic whirl of activity around the place, and awesome involvement from students, staff, and parent volunteers. Our ePro8 Year 7 and 8 team not only took out the interschool event, but came second at the regional finals. The only thing that set them back was a ‘build the tallest tower challenge’ as a tie-breaker when their tower (which was heading to be the winner) collapsed at the last second. Awesome work team! The Year 5 and 6 team also did exceptionally well, coming 2nd equal at the semi-final and then 8th in the final. It was fun to coach them on their building technique and ideas for making team decisions in the heat of the competition. [Read More...]

Kaharoa Kokako Trust Work Day - 21 May 2022

posted: Wed, May 18, 2022

See below a message from Graeme Young from the KKT requesting help for the upcoming work day: Hi Kaharoa Supporters. We are approaching our critical period of the year with our pest control operations due to start in mid-July. Only 2 months away! All going well around that same time there is a capture of a few Kaharoa kokako to be translocated to Kapiti Island as part of a gene safety bank. So that means clear access is critical for both of those operations. Most of our bait line tracks have a volunteer assigned to look after them (adopt-a-track) and they should be finding the time to get out and clear their lines and fix any issues with their bait stations or track labelling. ...
