When there is an event like A Tree for Every Child happening you would think it be the same year after year. This annual event is always different. A range of whanau come to participate and each tree is planted in a new area of the school.
For 2023 our area for planting was directly outside the School hall. The removal of the flax buses and old over shrubs allowed us to start a new round of planting.
There were of course the shovel learners who stand by and look. The Kaitiakitanga Amber, Sophie and Alex helped and supported our five year olds to plant their tree and to keep the garden clean and ready during the planting.
Matt our school photographer was also invited to plant his own tree and he jumped at the opportunity as did our caretaker Jeni.
A memory making day for all involved.
The trees were supplied by A and P Lifestyle Solution from Hitiri Road.
