The Hedgehope School connection with Sherwood Forest at Tussock Creek goes back several decades to the time when Derek and Pat Turnbull owned the property. These days it is an integral part of the Enviroschool’s learning programme with visits there every fortnight. The pupils are involved in learning about the flora and fauna that live in this special place, along with undertaking predator control. On one of the school’s recent outings there was much excitement when they discovered a ferret killed in one of their DOC 200 traps. The students decided to make videos, involving all of the school, telling their learning stories from Sherwood Forest, so the experience is multifaceted. The photos below are taken from their Sherwood Sharp youtube programme. Amazing work, Hedgehope School!
