Broadlands School

Environmental Education

Although not formally an EnviroSchool, our active EnviroGroup spends time about the school keeping it tidy and occasionally planting a wonderful selection of native species each year.

We have an EnviroGarden with raised planters which are planted with seasonal vegetables. We have our own orchard which is now beginning to bare more fruit.

The EnviroGroup has also been involved with community planting days over recent years including the Lions Club Vaile Road Reserve project and the Te Toke Road Riverside Reserve joint Contact Energy / Ngati Whaoa – Ngati Tahu Runanga Trust project on two occasions.

In 2013, the EnviroGroup was also involved in ‘Beautify Broadlands’ project with the support of the Rotorua District Council.

We have three recycling bins for cardboard, paper and plastic which recycled locally.

We are all very proud of our school environment.
