Orokonui Enviroschools Hui

Liam Hewson, Zoe, and Britten Clarke went on an Enviroschools Hui at Orokonui Ecosanctuary.  The focus for the day was Ecological Buildings.  That means a building which works in harmony with the water and land around it, that can harness the energy from the sun and which enriches the lives of creatures, plants and people. We were inspired by the schools that shared their work on Eco Huts.  We also went to Purakanui School to see their hut that encouraged life to grow amongst it and to enjoy its presence.  
We braved the wind, rain and hail to visit the birds' habitat and examine their feeding stations. It was a very interesting day where we met super people from other Enviroschools and we heard about their fantastic Enviro-projects.  We felt so inspired.
