Environment

Kaikorai Valley College values its superb natural park-like setting that includes Kaikorai Stream.  Each year the College sets a curriculum goal to focus action towards meeting our environmental commitments and kaupapa as an Enviroschool.  Our students are increasingly taking the lead to make decisions for enhancing our environment.

Kaikorai Valley College is the school to be in if you value science, the environment and getting our young people to prepare for a more sustainable way of living.  The College is the hub for environmental action in the Kaikorai Stream catchment and seeks to provide outreach activities to share the learning with our neighbouring primary schools.  We aim to build a wider network of students and schools that can work collaboratively to improve the quality of our living space.

The school has a current community project working with Scott Technology at Townleys Rd to enhance the riparian margins of Kaikorai Stream.  This builds on the College’s 2006 and 2007 Stream Field days and World Environment Day celebrations in 2008. We seek to develop citizenship, leadership and academic excellence in our students using environment and sustainability as contexts for learning in all curriculum areas.
