Matahui Forest School Taster

posted in: News/Media | 0

Matahui School would like to invite parents with preschool children aged 3, 4, 5 or 6 years to join us for a three-hour forest school taster held here at the school.

Our forest school taster will be held in the school’s native bush area fondly known as ‘The Huts’. Here the children can play, build, create and explore in a natural environment guided by an experienced level 3 forest school leader and qualified ECE teacher. 

As part of the taster programme the children will be encouraged to climb trees, explore the forest area, build huts, learn to weave or whittle, make forest trolls or fairies out of clay, create forest art, become archeologists for the day, and play, learn and create magic in a native bush environment.

We have the following dates available during term 4: 19 November and 3 December from 9.00am-12.00pm with a 30-minute break for morning tea (morning tea not provided). 

This forest school taster is aimed at preschool children aged 3 years or older, and parents are most welcome to join us too. The cost is $10 per child/per session. 

If you are interested in joining us for this unique experience, then please contact us on 07 552 0655 or email office@matahui.school.nz to confirm your child’s place. Your child can attend one session or both. Spaces are limited to 15 children, so get in quick.
