Onerahi School Programme, 2023

In term 2 of 2023 three of Onerahi School's year 3/4 classes engaged in a Whitebait Connection programme with coordinators Pat, Tracey & Greer.
Their programme included a local freshwater investigation at their local awa Waimahanga. At the Waimahanga awa the students did water quality testing, gathered macroinvertebrate samples and observed fish species that were caught in gee minnow traps and a hinaki. Positive things the students noted about the awa including shading, cool temperatures, high clarity and a high diversity of fish species.
