Enviro Cluster Meeting

On the 8th June Mrs Venville and Mrs Daniels went to an after school Enviro Cluster Meeting at Wakaaranga Primary School

We learnt about:
  •  Bees and ways to get students involved 
  •  It was an opportunity to reconnect/network with local Enviroschools key teachers
  •  We heard how Wakaaranga have set up their hive + visited the hive with students 
  •  We met local “Sweet As” bee keepers
  •  We found out about Sarah’s project to make Auckland become the safest city in the world for bees
  •  We explored how being beekeepers addresses global challenges. E.g. pollination and health
  •  We discussed the challenges and brainstormed a variety of ways schools can be bee keepers
  • Found out how and when to apply for quick response Howick Local Board funds to support your projects
  • We were given 5 lemon trees grown by prisoners at Paremoremo to plant in  our school orchard
