Last Thursday, our students who care for the Living Room were our representatives at the annual Waikato Enviroschools celebration at Mystery Creek, Hamilton along with 300 other passionate environmental students.  This year's theme was 'Global Issues, Local realities'.  In our presentation, our global issue was the decline of honeybees and the impact this has on our natural and food producing environments.  Our students worked for over a term to develop their presentation. We started with an iMovie that introduced our issue, followed by our factual information presented in three different ways, including a display in two different mediums and an iPad Puppet Pal.  At the conclusion of our presentation, we had a fun honeybee quiz with a prize.  We had a fantastic day together with our parent helpers, and other enthusiastic schools who we learnt a lot from too.

A lot of great things have been happening in the Living Room backyard garden.  We have completed the first stage of the outdoor oven with community help, we have a new beehive thanks to our supportive local beekeepers and we continue to care for, eat and cook from our gardens.
