Junior School ākonga enjoyed a visit from Helen Hamblin of the Kea Conservation Trust last week to share some information about Kea with us. She shared lots of great ways we can help Kea and we learned how dangerous lead can be for Kea. 🦜

The children were thoroughly engaged throughout the whole session, and their learning linked back to our WAKA Value of Kaitiakitaka (Guardianship) and how we can help to protect these birds. The students looked at the wonderful examples of leg tags and predator poo encased in resin. One even had the remains of a kea in it!

This was a wonderfully informative session, thank you to Miss Haanan for organising this.
