Verse of The Day
“Otiia i a ia e hurihuri ana i enei mea, na, ka puta moemoea mai tetahi anahera a te Ariki ki a ia, ka mea, E Hohepa, e te tama a Rawiri, kaua e hopohopo ki te tango i a Meri, i tau wahine; na te Wairua Tapu hoki tona hapu. A e whanau ia he tama, me hua e koe tona ingoa ko IHU: no te mea mana e whakaora tona iwi i o ratou hara.” (Matthew 1:20-21)

An interesting, invigorating and very enjoyable Dunes Habitat workshop was attended by 70 year 5-6 students, parents and community members last week. The workshop, hosted by Ngunguru School and delivered by Northland Regional Council, saw students involved in hands on learning about how a dune habitat functions, the plant and animal biodiversity of our dunes, and pest plants and animals which threaten our coastline.

The workshop, which was very well run by Lisa Forester, Laura Shaft and Sara Brill from NRC, was an exciting step towards the community working together to protect and restore this unique habitat. The school plans to 'adopt' the care for the northern area of Pii Manu with student kaitiaki working towards managing the current Pea Shrub issue and investigating and dealing with other pest species into the future.

Thank you to those who attended and/or had input into the day. The students look forward to working with more of you in the future.

If you are interested in becoming involved with the efforts of Ngunguru School students in working towards community conservation please email Loren Hope lhope(at)
