With a passion for environmental education, Riverina School in Pakuranga provides its students with knowledge and tools to help develop their understanding of the natural ecosystem. The school encourages students to connect to the wider community and understand the role every individual plays in building an eco-friendly lifestyle.
Ruud Kleinpaste – the Bugman and Dr Riley Elliott, Shark Scientist visited Riverina School to inspire students and show them how we can all learn from nature and the important role that bugs and sharks play in our ecosystem and how they all impact our environment.
Principal, Carol Dickinson and her enthusiastic teachers are looking forward to further developing their outdoor learning space for students to learn in nature following Ruud’s session with the teaching staff. Their environmental project will see an area of their school grounds transformed into a vibrant learning space where fruit and vegetables will be grown and native trees planted.
