Garston and Hedgehope Schools Lead the Way
Environment Southland judges for the School’s Section of this year’s Environment Awards were most impressed by the great effort of Garston School with the 1,500 hours put in to restoring the roadside bank beneath the school in natives. Garston shared first prize in the School’s Section with Hedgehope School, who have had a busy year working with the community in a Treemendous Makeover of a waste area of their school grounds, planting it out in natives. They have also become involved in restoration plantings at the Turnbull Sherwood Forest.
