Enviroschools ‘School Environments’ Workshop

The Enviroschools workshop held by the Northland Regional Council was held at our school and our students did us proud. They were excellent presenters of our school and entertained the guests who consisted of teachers, principals and caretakers from across the district to our hands on learning projects. They were so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and everyone commented about it. Leading and informing visitors with real knowledge and facts brings such an opportunity for leadership while also developing and shaping them in support of any future career.
