The Den


The Den: As we move towards implementing a Learning Through STEM Programme, we require a lot of support from parents and whanau. When we have a look at what we achieved in The Cub House last year; it was amazing!!!!

How can you help???

● Donations of old but good tools, hammers screwdrivers etc

● Wood off cuts everything accepted

● Driftwood

● Plastic barrels (clean please.... No poison containers:)

● Planks of wood

● Nails

● Screws

● Plastic containers in good condition

● Rope

● Old sheets

● Clean plastic drink bottles

● Anything else that you have that students could use for building

If you have anything that you think may be useful for innovative tinkering and making projects we would love to hear from you.
