Tamariki at Central Kids Kihikihi Kindergarten enjoyed an inspiring and educational workshop facilitated by Para Kore Kaiārahi Paul Murray on 6th November 2020. Paul (alias Matua X) visits frequently to support us in our journey towards Zero Waste.
The Kaupapa for the morning included worm farming and waste management. In small groups, the tamariki were delighted to be observing up close the tiger worm characteristics and their variety of colours. They then demonstrated the knowledge and understanding of the food types which worms require for a balanced diet to produce wonderful ‘worm tea’ for our gardens.
Fun and laughter followed this as tamariki had the opportunity to meet, interact and explore a variety of puppets created from re used materials. The visit concluded with our quarterly waste audit.
We look forward to increasing the ways in which we re use, recycle and compost materials, thereby helping to protect and nurture Papatūānuku.
