Tangiteroria students star in Kea Kids news!

Watch Tangiteroria student and KEA Kids news’ reporter Carmen showcase the delicate eco-system surrounding the Enviroschool.

The news story captures the Tangiteroria tamariki in action learning and wanting to change the environment around them for the better.

Teacher Eden Hakaraia said the opportunity to feature their Enviroschool on Kea Kids news was due to parent and Animal Pests Control NZ owner director Duane Doughty, who helped facilitate the visit.

The film was shot over a few days and also included a separate video on Project Pest Control.

Eden said Carmen’s role as a Kea News reporter was a perfect fit, as she is a great advocate for the Enviroschools Programme and a budding environmentalist who loves to trap predators!

All the children involved loved participating in the experience and wanted to share some of their highlights:

Casey: Enjoyed the night shooting because she likes to shoot possums and the process of getting them out of trees.

Jack: Liked skinning the possums at Kai Iwi Lakes and likes the idea of being able to gain school credits for the task in the future.

Carmen: Her favourite part was the interview at school especially in the ngahere because they were able to showcase all the hard mahi of Tangiteroria School.
