Thank you to Te Anau's wonderful librarians for setting up this cool display!
Kia ora and apologies for the delay in sharing this post on our page. After a restful and enjoyable break, we are back on deck! Watch this space and have a great Term 4, Alessandra Education Coordinator
The Nature Bugs' enthusiasm also spread into yesterday's creative session at Te Anau Library...

Don't forget: KRTK / Te Anau Library creative session is on tomorrow (Friday), 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm at Te Anau Library! 😉
Te Anau School Room 9 and Room 4 spent last Tuesday afternoon hunting for critters and collecting special materials to create 'nature bugs' (inspired by photographer and artist Raku Inoue). The kids then worked on their creations yesterday afternoon and the results are amazing!
Yesterday Te Anau School Room 8 visited Ivon Wilson Park and the Bird Sanctuary. We loved catching up with the Nature Discovery kids from Fiordland Kindergarten, planting flax and kowhai seedlings (kindly donated by Home Creek Nursery and Kindy), meeting the southern grass skink, checking a few stoat traps, sitting and eating around the camp fire, stopping by the wetabox, playing in the hut, entering the takahe enclosure, asking Ranger Kiri a lot of good questions and feeding the ducks. Thank you Fiordland Kindergarten for hosting us by the Shed. Thank you also to the parent / grandparent helpers and Ranger Kiri for all their time.

You spend so much time exploring and wandering in the outdoors with the children... Fiordland Kindergarten and Southern Stars ELC, you totally deserve this! 😉
Do you remember the wonderful mobiles and travelling exhibit that the children made during one of the Te Anau Library / KRTK creative sessions? Today Raewyn the Librarian sent these pics from Lumsden Library 😉 Thank you for sharing guys and great to see you are enjoying the mobiles! Next stop: Winton Library
