New Whanau Member
New Whanau Member - Mill Street Early Learning

We have a new addition to Mill St whanau, our tamariki really wanted a pet to call their own.  First mission was to decide what animal we wanted. We had to work out the logistics of could we potentially have a horse? After a lot of discussion and measuring it was decided no, perhaps a horse wasn’t the best choice.

At Ashhurst Kindergarten we have been very fortunate in receiving fruit trees from some of our families to support our focus on sustainable practice/being kaitiaki of Papatūānuku.

Welcome to our family
Welcome to our family - Ashhurst Kindergarten

At Ashhurst Kindergarten we have welcomed 3 goldfish. They are happily enjoying their new home in a self-sustaining ecosystem that requires little maintenance. This setup teaches our children how plants and goldfish can benefit each other in a symbiotic relationship. The filter sucks up the water, feeds the plants, the plants filter the water and return it to the goldfish tank.
