This past week I met with the stream maintenance team at Owhiro Bay School. They have a beautiful and unique outdoor area for learning at the stream behind their school, but it is difficult to maintain. More details on the Projects and Programs page of this site. I sat in on a planning meeting and will be volunteer there next Wednesday to do some maintenance work.
I had another visit at Te Aro School to learn from the bee keeping class. This visit was very short, but I still learned something new and will be going back for more next week.
I also had the opportunity to visit with the principal of Island Bay School. This is the school that little Z is attending. I am very excited about their progressive educational philosophies and getting to see them put into practice. I'm very much looking forward to the future visits I have arrange to meet with the Learning Hub coordinator and to see Freedom Fridays first hand. Again, more details about these on the Projects and Programs page.
Here hiking is called tramping, which, depending on the context, sometimes makes me giggles. That being said, we certainly are looking forward to more tramping around soon!
