We are very lucky to have a school beehive that George and Claire Bell of Southern Lakes Honey have set up for us. Today was our first lesson about bees and the hive. Some students were able to suit up and give the Bells a hand. We are very excited to have this great ongoing learning opportunity for our students. Thank you George and Claire we can’t wait for the next visit.

Kids Restore the Kepler

Today we went on our Annual Kids Restore the Kepler Trip. This year we got to explore Jack Beer’s Camp. Jack was a pioneer who farmed at the start of the Kepler Track, before it was a National Park. KRTK Education Co-ordinator Alessandra planned a great day for us, that allowed us to learn about Jack Beer, his life and explore the artefacts that were left behind. This was a great start to our Kiwiana Inquiry this year by learning about our local history. Thank you to the parent help that joined us and a big thank you to Alessandra for sharing her knowledge and setting up the treasure hunt.

Blueberries

Our School Leaders have been hard at work fundraising over the Summer holidays and also this term. On a very hot weekend this month, some of our leaders and their supportive families picked, packed and delivered 115kgs of blueberries. A huge thank you to Blueberry Country Southland in Otautau, where Jim the Orchard Manager taught the students how to pick the best berries and picked up the trays each hour, so they stayed cool. Also thank you to Simon the General Manager for letting us work for this great fundraising opportunity.
