Tainui school gets environmental grant

Tainui primary school near Tokoroa has received $4000 in Environmental Initiative funding from Environment Waikato for an environmental awareness programme.

The school wants to foster greater environmental awareness among its students with a recycling programme and a school vegetable garden. The school also plans to use the vegetable gardens to supplement food available to students at home. It will also develop outdoor education areas.

The staff are using the school environment as a test subject for planning and teaching a unit to be implemented throughout the school. The students will develop ideas to progress the recycling and gardening programmes and put projects into practice.
