School Has Many Green Projects

Worm Farming

“Ten years as an environmentally friendly school has turned out nicely for one east Auckland school.

Pigeon Mountain Primary was recognised at a ceremony last month for its long standing commitment to the Enviroschools programme.

The programme has been running for 10 years and Pigeon Mountain has been involved from the very beginning.

“When I first came to the school it wasn’t long before the council brought in some new regulations which were particularly tight around coal fire heating,” principal Ginty Bigwood says.

“We could no longer burn our rubbish or have a coal fire boiler so we decided that we would become an environmentally-friendly school and I could see it would be a great catalyst for children’s learning.”

The school has worm farms, actively recycles, saves energy and has planted native bush, gardens and an orchard.”
