Central Kids Charles Kindergarten tamariki and kaiako take pride in our ongoing Mahi Tiaki Mō te Māra. Working and learning with kaiako, tamariki take an active part in preparing the ground, planting, watering and knowing where the plants are.
The satisfaction for our hinengaro/mind, tinana/brain and wairua/spirit when we partake in harvest, eating our produce that we have taken care to water and nurture, is one part in which we undertake taking care of ourselves through using Papatūānuku and her resources.
Pikitu Marae, a Marae in Raukawa located on Wiltsdown Road in Waotu, leads in sustainable practices with Manaakitanga of Papatūānuku and restoring Earth Mother for future generations to come. Central Kids Charles Kindergarten will follow in their steed towards becoming more in tune with the needs of Papatūānuku.
