Rata Team have been environmental warriors! We've been busy learning about plants and have been planting near and far.
Our day started with a visit from Richard Leckinger from Keep NZ Beautiful. Richard spoke to us about his job and how we can contribute to keeping 'our place' beautiful by being Tidy Kiwis. We shared many ideas about how we could do this.
Room 1 learning about and naming plant parts.
Room 1 and 2 planting seedlings and bulbs with our expert from Mitre 10, Diana Kewish. Thanks to Diana for your time and to Mitre 10 for the donation of soil and seedlings. We will enjoy watching these grow in our vege garden.
Rooms 3 and 13 teaming up to plant tree seedlings.
Rooms 5 and 9 learned about herb plants and helped pull weeds out of our school gardens.
