There's a handy little list of the final key dates for the 2023 Springs-Waiōrea school…
Level 2 Environmental Sustainability
The Level 2 Environmental Sustainability students braved the weather recently to replant the garden beds in the village green. We were inspired by Allen Gorthy from “For the Love of Bees”, who ran a workshop about biodynamic gardening. Oscar Perress Furness-Wills came too, to explain the social sustainability aspect of these gardens – both the beds in the village green that he & some friends started while they were at Springs, as well as the community garden projects that For The Love of Bees are coordinating.
Level 2 Science
Level 2 Science students have been learning about how different animals (fish, mammals & insects) are adapted to respire in their different environments.We were very lucky to have Associate Professor Tony Hickey come & speak to us about his work with mitochondria.
Level 2 Biology trip to Te Hāwere-a-Maki / Goat Island
Level 2 Biology students travelled to the Leigh Marine Reserve to collect data & observe the pattern of organisms on the Rocky Shore. We were so proud of how the students worked together to collect their data & explore the Rocky Shore.
