Mrs Smith's Room 17 students showed Aroha within our school with enthusiasm and a caring attitude. They asked our Sustainable Team of teachers and students what they could do to help in our gully. Our gully restoration has been in progress for many years with substantial plantings happening in 2001. Our boardwalk is a great way to view the gully and listen to the many birds that now visit our gully. In teams, Room 17 planted six native trees and then cleared the slippery boardwalk. This will help all our students when they are doing visitor tours and further planting.
