Trips and Events

We are planning several trips and events throughout the year to promote the learning themes of the team. Photo's and artefacts will be recorded here as the year progresses

As part of our swimming programme at the tepid baths, the Totara team learns Water Safety.

We had a fabulous morning down at Herne Bay beach, observing the surroundings and discovering some wildlife. This trip is the inspiration for our inquiry, next stop Long Bay Reserve!
