Roto-o-Rangi School

2 Kiwi visit and get released

The school were treated to a rare event today. Two Kiwi were brought to the school for all the children to see and hear about the detailed process of conserving our kiwi and returning them to Muangatautari.
Two students said a karakia for a safe life to the kiwi and then every student received a close-up view of each one. Following that close encounter, 11 very lucky children (and a few adults) went with the kiwi into the Maungatautari bush. The children searched for a suitable burrow that the Kiwi could call Home. They were able to watch them both move into their new homes and settle down for a good sleep after a tiring day. Thanks to Bill Garland and the Maungatautari Sanctuary group for giving our children a life long memory.
