Senior Ocean Champion Challenge Name: Happy Steps into the future
Challenge description:  Caring for tangaroa kaitiakitanga. We are wanting children to experience an environment where they will develop working theories and make sense of their natural world. To take care of tangaroa and everything it has to offer. Extending children’s interest and knowledge around sustaining our kai Mōana and what it takes to look after it to become a kaitiakitanga of the sea. We will be undergoing Seaweek with lots of knowledgeable fun exciting activities and information for our tamariki and any whanau who wishes to join us. We will be sending out a news letter to parents and whanau inviting them to join our Seaweek extravaganza. We are hoping for visits from our local community organisations to join us and explain to us the importance of their jobs (DOC and MPI) we are also trying to get hold of our local Coast Guard to teach us the importance of water safety. We will measure success by the engagement of the tamariki, photos, learning stories and whanau contributions.
