9 August 2016 Meeting

11 August 2016 / Posted by Janszoon Education

We had our 3rd meeting with student leaders from all of the Adopt a Section schools at Kimi Ora today. The students from Motupipi Primary School led the meeting.

It's always good to get a chance to catch up and share in person. And today we had guest speaker Tim Logan join us in the afternoon to share his experiences of being a young person interested in conservation and the environment. He's done some really cool things, from getting his family to let him plant natives in a section of their lifestyle block, to doing research on the impact of grazing on some native plants. His research was presented at both the New Zealand and European science fairs, which was pretty impressive! He has also been a Sir Peter Blake Ambassador. We really enjoyed hearing from him and left feeling inspired at the end of the afternoon.

Have a look at the photos from our meeting to see more of what we got up to.

And big thanks to Karina and Aaron for hosting us at Kimi Ora today!!!
