Year 8 Enviro Project 2017

This year we have been looking at our local area.  We have been looking at the Kaipara Harbour, which is right on our doorstep. 


To look at that will allow use to explore our Harbour and many impacts that it has on us and our impacts on it.  We will explore our Harbour and investigate recreational, commercial and eco tourism uses of the Harbour. We will be given the opportunity to investigate our area and what it could be used for in the future and how we can improve and sustain the environment.

What do we want the students to get out of the experience

  • Know and value the area they live in

  • Think about their own local environment in terms of sustainability

  • Creative thinking - eco tourism

  • Problem Solving - identify and solve issues.
