In 2015, Hamilton Central Rotary started working with Whitiora School. We have a few things we are working on including an eco-garden, reading and maths assistance, and an outdoor classroom design.
We will be providing photo updates shortly. In the meantime, here is a list of remaining activities required for the eco-garden.
- Two garden boxes still to be completed.
- Collection of rainwater system to be organised.
- Topsoil and grassing to perimeter of gardens.
- Install additional compost bin (donated by Bunnings)
A working bee will be held at Whitiora School on Saturday 17 of September, 10am to 1.00pm. Working bee objectives include the spreading of topsoil around the perimeter of the garden boxes prior to the sowing of grass seed later in the spring.
If you’d like to help out with the eco-garden, offer reading and math assistance to the young students and/or can offer expertise towards designing an outdoor classroom, get in touch.
