Motupipi River Catchment Project is a Golden Opportunity for local High School students.
The Motupipi catchment drains an area of approximately 2855 hectares in the lower Takaka Valley of Golden Bay. A whole catchment and community initiative is being implemented to remove weeds (in particular crack willow), fence off the waterways and plant edges. Golden Bay High School students have got stuck in, boots and all, in this collaborative project that aims to address water quality issues.
Me in My Environment activities help build awareness and sensitivity to nature.
An alternative to the usual Tasman Mission event was hosted by Enviroschools Tasman to provide an opportunity to experience some of the activities from the Enviroschools resources and build awareness of these and the “natural resources” that each school has available for learning in their local environment.
Day of inspiration for Tasman's Envirogroups and Lead Teachers showcases Ngatimoti School
It’s cool to be an Enviroschool! Enviroschools Tasman facilitators held a professional development day for their network hosted by Ngatimoti School in May 2021. The programme provided learning and development for teachers and students, with strong leadership shown by the host students in sharing their knowledge and stories.
Tasman Mission provides a positive challenge for 2020
The Tasman Mission event is an annual challenge for groups of students from 7 -12 years old engaged in the Enviroschools programme in the Tasman District. Below is a recap of this positive event that helped build connections between students and provide a range of environmental and sustainable experiences for participants.
