Preparing the Garden for Active Families

This year Makerspace and Tāmaki Wrap we are partnering with Sport Auckland! 

Pt England have students and whānau taking part in Sport Auckland's Active Families programme. We are helping by sharing one of our raised garden beds and starting a Pt England Mahi Māra Gardening Club.

Our first job is to prepare the garden. Over the hot, dry summer holidays the soil dried up so we are going to replace it with healthy compost from the EcoMatters trust. 

Volunteers from Room 1 and across the school have been working every day to loosen and remove the hard soil- it's hot, hard work but together we are getting there- Kia Pai te Kotahi!

Have you ever seen a Recyclemonster?

Well I have...
It was a bit crazy!
It was very big and very scary!
Watch out…

Because if you don’t put your rubbish in the bin…


When the writing crew this year decided this year to make a film about recycling, we wanted to get your attention by giving you a friendly scare! You'll never think the same  about chucking your recycling on the ground again...

Camera Assistant: Mata
Script: Daniella, Delijah, Laolao, Mata, Toni & Zaeeda
Choreography: Toni

*In the making of this movie no children were harmed :)

The Roots at Pt England- No Six video

It has been an amazing experience to have The Roots at Pt England this term helping us create our vertical gardens, water filters, water tanks and teach us so much about the water in our environment.  
We were also lucky to have the crew at No Six helping us, taking beautiful photos and making this awesome video.
