The West Coast Penguin Trust guided their third group of teachers through the Trust’s educational resource and some of the activities at Hokitika Primary School in September 2016. The resource is modelled on the Enviroschools Action Learning Cycle and supports schools to take action for blue penguins.
To break the ice, attendees had to draw a penguin with pencil and paper on their head! Almost impossible to do and a great ice breaker - keep it up your sleeve!
The feedback from the workshop was very positive and included "This was all very relevant to our school. Thank you!" and "What a fantastic resource for use in our centres and schools".
Thank you to the participants who gave up time to come along and we look forward to hearing about the penguin and seabird activities you do with the children in your care. If you haven’t seen the resource yet and would like to use it with children you teach or lead, you can download it from the Trust’s website www.bluepenguin.org.nz/ , or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a hard copy.
