The teachers said, "Yes - we're going, it's not going to rain!"
So off we went on our walk to the river.
We noticed lots of stormwater manholes and the drains. We imagined the pipes going under the ground, taking the rainwater down to the Waikato River.
We stopped at the top of the steps because we found this sign. We have heard the word "Matakanohi" in our school Hotumauea song and now we have seen it on a sign! Now down all the steps...
We were very careful walking down the steps because there were lots of them.
Can you see our Stormwater Drain Ninja Turtle name tags?
At the bottom of the steps we found another sign!
The research group took photos and tested the water quality.
All the children had a bag and plastic glove to collect rubbish on the way back to school.
Great work Year 2/3 team. The teachers were proud of how sensible you were on our trip.
A big thanks to all the wonderful parent help who came to help the children with their
learning about stormwater and keeping the Waikato River clean.
