Last week the team at Central Kids Jackson Park and Henare Gurney met to talk through the mahi they do in relation to the Bronze reflection paragraph. After a discussion about the sustainable practices of Jackson Park and the learning that our tamariki are doing, we all agreed that Jackson Park is meeting the Bronze reflection paragraph. Some of the things that Jackson Park do are, gardening, community events, supporting whānau, ngahere excursions and water use awareness.
The paragraph says…. “We have started work on getting to know our environment better and creating a whole Early Education Centre vision. We are thinking about all the Guiding Principles in our planning and action, and we can see how they would look across the Key Areas of centre life. Children at our centre are exploring options and finding some ways to take action for a sustainable future. We can already show some changes from what we have done. There are some children and staff actively involved, and we’ve taken steps to let everyone else in the centre know what is going on. The people in our centre and community know that we are an Enviroschool.”
