Sustainability was on the agenda at Kaiapoi North School
yesterday when pupils received an introduction to the Kaiapoi River
Council Land and Drainage engineer Greg Bennett gave an address on the issue of ecological sustainability, encouraging the students to think about the future, and how they could contribute to the health and prosperity of their local river and its surrounding environment.
“The feedback was really encouraging,” Bennett says.
“You could see as the discussion developed that the students
were really getting into it. Some great ideas came up, which I’m sure the
school, and the students themselves, will follow through on.
“This is their environment, their river, and you could see
their excitement as ways they could contribute were discussed.”
Students were shown a presentation which highlighted the
changes that were taking place on and around the river, and asked to consider
questions such as planting concepts and detailed
landscape plans for particular sites.
Education was also provided around
plant selection for landscaping purposes.
“There was a lot to it,” Bennett
“Sometimes we take aspects within
our environment for granted. We all see things but we don’t really give a lot
of thought as to how they came to be and, just as importantly, why?
“The Kaiapoi North School discussions
were about finding solutions and it was really pleasing to see the depth with
which the students engaged on the topic.”
Council’s Kaiapoi River Rehabilitation Project consultation,
which closed earlier in the month, offered the public the chance to comment on proposals
that were designed to improve the water quality, navigability, flood hazard
management, amenity and recreation of the river.
