Members of the Rangiora Ashley Community Board paid a
special visit to North Loburn School today to acknowledge the contribution to
the environment made by nine-year-old students, Cate Ambury and Jorja Simpson.
The Board presented the pair with certificates after they carried
out a survey of litter found in and around the Rangiora area, providing a
presentation of their findings to a school assembly.
The girl’s survey was in keeping with North Loburn School’s
position as a green/gold enviro school in the nationwide Enviroschools
Green/gold is the highest level a school can achieve within
the programme, with the significance of its attainment being highlighted by the
fact that there are over 1000 schools across New Zealand that participate in
the Enviroschools programme.
This network embraces over 260,000 children and young
people, their whānau and thousands of their teachers.
Cate and Jorja’s special project came at an appropriate
time, as North Loburn has been working hard in the environmental space in order
to retain its green/gold rating after this year’s review of all Enviroschools.

support of their parents, in their own time, with the work contributing to the
summit challenges North Loburn assigns its students.
The challenges require students to take the lead in
completing a number of tasks throughout the year.
The children are able to create their own task if they want
to, as Cate and Jorja did by carrying out their survey on local waste.
The girls’ activity fitted in neatly with their school’s
environmental values, which place an emphasis on sustainability through one’s
