Henderson Valley Primary School - Waitakere - 2 kw
Henderson Valley School is excited about being involved in the Schoolgen Project. As a Green-gold enviro-school we actively pursue initiatives that support our vision of sustainability. We want to be a leader in environmental education and are innovative and motivated about developing a school community which instinctively thinks and acts sustainably. We are keen to share our knowledge and understanding with the wider community.
Henderson Valley School is in a semi-rural setting; nestled between farmland and bush at the foot of the Waitakere Ranges.We are extremely proud of our school environment and our ‘Green Team’ works hard with all our students and staff to ‘Reduce, Re-use and Recycle’.We are all involved with a number of action projects including edible gardens, wetland restoration and plant propagation.Our Schoolgen team are ambassadors for renewable energies: we promote energy-saving information in class, on our school website as well as in school newsletters and assemblies. We are busy and proactive and very proud to be working in partnership with Genesis Energy in generating electricity on a renewable basis.
