5,000th Student Milestone!

Last Tuesday, students from St Joseph's School in Hawera visited Rotokare Sanctuary to take part in our popular Environmental Education Programme.  One of these students marked the 5,000th student through the programme.

Since the development of the programme in late 2009, it has gone from strength to strength.  Over 2,000 students from early childhood through to year 13 attend per year.  The recipe for success has been simple, Rotokare provides the perfect environment for education, that along with high quality, hands on activities and lots of passion and commitment from a well oiled team of staff and volunteers.  

The early and ongoing success of the Rotokare Environmental Education Programme would not be possible without the generous support of Taranaki Electricity Trust (TET) and the Ministry of Education Learning Experiences Outside the Classroom (LEOTC) funding.
