Porirua SchoolElsdon, Porirua
Porirua School renovated a rugged patch of its grounds into an educational and interactive garden themed “Nga Taonga o Tane” (the treasures of Tane), the guardian spirit of the forest.
Sensory, edible, rainbow and butterfly gardens were planted and native trees were dotted throughout. A pond area for attracting insects and amphibians was enhanced with a lizard lounge, providing a safe area for lizards to sun themselves in full view of students.
