Enviro School

Otonga School joined the national Enviroschools programme in June 2008. We achieved the Bronze Enviroschool standard in 2011. 

One term per year is spent in a full inquiry and action study that explores what we can do to look after our home, school, community and global environment.

 These range from individual responsibility for recycling, to class worm farms and litter areas, school composting , community stream and lake studies and being aware of the natural world that surrounds us. 

Otonga's Green Team enthusiastically runs special projects and monitors and supports classrooms to be more environmentally active. We enjoy support from our parents, community and the Bay of Plenty Regional Council.
We received a silver medal in 2015.
