A new partnership

Back to Te Māra a Tāne.

Recently Thomas Robertson, principal of Kelvin Road School, signed a partnership agreement with Trees for Survival, Winstone Aggregates and Auckland Council and last November, Field Officer Dianne Patterson gave an introductory talk to teachers followed by a slide show to the senior school assembly, outlining the nature of the TfS programme and its educational and environmental benefits.

Dawn Taffard is keen to build the programme into the school’s curriculum and has taken on the responsibility of co-ordinating with TfS. The school is very appreciative of the great support of Keith Barber of Winstone Aggregates who has already assisted hands-on in linking the Plant Growing Unit to a water supply and installing the automatic timer. In addition, Winstone Aggregates is also donating some eco-sourced seedlings from their nursery in the Hunua Ranges.
