Tiri Kids Care

Our Enviro Group meets on Tuesday afternoons during 2012 to work on projects that support environmental action and to learn how to care for our environment .  One of our teachers, Mrs Stephanie Devcich, brought photos to school at the end of 2011 that showed teams of people working on the clean up of the beaches around Tauranga and Mt Maunganui after the oil spill from the stranded container ship 'Rena' off the coast in the Bay of Plenty. Mrs Devcich and her family are part of that team becaue they have a holiday home in Mt Maunganui.

Our children have been very concerned and interested in following the progress of emptying the ship of oil and keeping our beaches pristine.

They drew pictures and talked about this terrrible environmental threat.
