PTS SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN AT WESTCITY IN HENDERSON
A nature-themed educational school holiday programme
Monday 16 - Friday 20 July from 10am-2pm
* Bookings taken on the day *
Location: Level 2 next to Stirling Sports

Book your kids to explore our local environment and learn while they’re having fun! They will test the local water from our streams, check contamination levels and learn about what that means for the environment. This educational activity includes an information exhibition focusing on the different streams, insects and bugs that surround Henderson and the Waitākere Ranges.

They can also view the bug display and learn about the different leaves each insect likes to eat. They can create their own native clay animals dressed in leaves plus their own mini stream to take home.
