Students learn about the threats to the land from invasive pests and the threats to water quality. Students then brainstorm solutions to these threats.
Students will participate in local environmental actions and where possible establish an enterprise. In 2017 students will work on a Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment Curious Minds project being led by the Whitebait Connection. The aim is to find Inanga (Whitebait) spawning sites in Pawarenga. Students will learn how to find whitebait spawning sites. The Pangaru and Boroadwood rangatahi will learn fencing skills in order to exclude stock from the precious spawning sites and what type of plant to grow to encourage inanga to spawn on the Rotokakahi Awa.
