A week full of activities at Kokatahi-Kowhitirangi School

Sustainability Term 2 2018

Our whole school visit to Shanty Town this week. We learned about the "waste not, want not" approach during Victorian times. In other words, if you use a resource carefully, you will never be in need. This fits in very well with our Enviroschools kaupapa of creating a sustainable world.
