Forest School Sessions at Waikino School
Waikino School has introduced a Forest School programme, which currently operates one day per week. At present, only Waitawheta Class are taking part in these sessions, however, it is intended that the Forest School Programme will be extended to the wider school throughout the year.
Forest schools at Waikino is an evolving concept grounded in the fundamental idea that children learn more about themselves, who they are, what makes them excited, motivated and feel more connected when they are in nature. This learning through authentic and relevant exploratory experiences gives a foundation for learning in all other areas.
