During 2018, our Wairakei Estate Propagation Project has brought together the following intergenerational combinations from our local community.
The four groups powered through the task, potting up the 2,500 root trainers each. If the plants survive they will raise a potential $2,500 for each participating school.
- Students from St Patrick’s School and retirees from Liston Heights Retirement Village
- Students from Mountview Primary School and retirees from St Johns Wood Retirement Village.
- Students from Tauhara Primary School and retirees from Summerset by the Lake.
- Students from Reporoa Primary School and retirees from Wharerangi Village.
A warm welcome was waiting for Reporoa Primary School students who joined the project for the very first time. They were paired with Wharerangi Village residents who have all the previous experience needed to assist the newcomers with all their tasks.
