Tree Planting

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. The children are enjoying the opportunity to assist in helping to prepare certain areas for planting fruit trees and re-establishing planting plots for sensory and edible herbs.

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.
