Team Kotahitanga students visited Cascade Kauri today as part of their inquiry learning. It was a brilliant trip. Matua Riki and Jason showed students how Maori used the forest for various reasons. We examined a number of native trees and what they are used for. Matua Riki generated fire the way it was done long ago. Students were really amazed with this. They were also surprised to see massive Kauri and Totara trees. We had a long distance walk to explore the forest.
