Environment Centre Working Bee

Published July 02, 2013

On Sunday 16th June Oakura School had a working bee to plant 1000 trees for our new Enviro Centre, which we won funding from the Treemendous School Makeover competition. Even though it was a drizzly day, we had a fantastic turn out and would like to thank everyone involved. The Mayor Harry Duynhoven was there to close the event and Ruud Kleinpaste was the MC. The Kapa haka group, along with the students that were there, welcomed everybody in, and then we started planting. After all the trees were planted, The Mazda Foundation kindly sponsored all of us a sausage sizzle for the hot and hungry workers. Thank you to everyone who came and helped make the day a part of Oakura School history!
