Last week, some of the student leaders and students interested in the environment went on a trip to Rotoroa Island.
This island is a conservation site which is filled with native plants and wildlife.
We learnt about how to look after New Zealand; we leant about native plants, birds and explored the island.
Everyone had a fun and exciting day.
The instructors were very impressed with our behaviour and everything was amazing;the ride there on the train and boat as well as the ride back.
We learnt about how native animals are becoming extinct due to pests who kill them or the food they eat. If we don't do something to stop this - everything native in New Zealand will be extinct.
