About EnviroSchools

Imagine a world where communities are thriving by revitalising the ecosystems they are part of - producing healthy water and food, clean energy and rich biodiversity as well as nurturing buildings. A place where schools and community are one, with young people gaining skills, knowledge and experiences to design and create their schools, neighbourhoods and country.

1072 schools, kura and early childhood centres have already begun a journey towards this and we are excited to be joining them! This year (2017) Normandale School has been accepted on to the Enviroschools programme.

We currently have many "sustainability" projects running at the school such as paper recycling and our worm farm.  However, this programme will provide us with an opportunity to grow and expand some of these practices, build sustainable communities, is grounded by Māori Perspectives and embraces cultural diversity. 

We began our journey at the first meeting of the Normandale School Envirogroup on Thursday 23rd February 2017.
