Community Organisation Grants Scheme success!

Woohoo! We just wanted to express our huge thank you to the Community Organisation Grants Scheme. Last week we found, once again, that we have been successful in receiving a COGS grant for this coming year. Receiving this grant is instrumental to the success of our nature programme. It enables us to have Sarah on our programme, weekly, as our Nature Programme Coordinator.

Sarah’s role is invaluable to us, and  of course she is such an asset to the success and longevity of our Nature Programme. Having Sarah as the continuous person every week means she is able to share knowledge about what has been happening, where the children have been exploring and what their interests have been, with everyone; she is a font of knowledge!

“The natural world is a playground and place of discovery for adults and children alike . . . it is a place for adventure, exploration and imagination as well as generating a deepening care and connectedness with our environment.” (DOC NZ)
