Jim Barnett Bush Walk...

What a great day for the juniors. We got together with our town schools and had a wonderful day. Thank you to all the parent and grandparent helpers that came along and supervised small teams.

We are incredibly lucky with Barnett's Bush right on our doorstep. There is a huge variety of native trees, even a 1000 year old Totara! We were a bit too noisy for the birds, but there is also an abundance of birds flying around.

Many volunteers offer their time freely to walk their tracks and check the traps in order to keep pests like mice, rats and possum out of the bush.

We are lucky to have such a Taonga in our neighbourhood!

Don't forget, tomorrow is our turn for running the assembly!
