At the Mahara gallery, we have a Native Habitats project underway. Bringing together the arts and conservation, this is sponsored by the Phillip Family Foundation.
Year 5 and 6 students from Kapanui and Waikanae Schools have been coming to the gallery to play the game, write poetry, and create artwork.
The gallery will show all the artwork and the poetry that the students produce in a show Native Habitats: Waikanae Children’s creations. These works will then be gifted to the Nga Manu Wildlife centre for display in their new education suite.
Meanwhile we’re planning a inter-schools play-off of the game at the education centre on 28 March
