Details for Penguin Launch

The West Coast Penguin Trust
is delighted to invite you
to the launch of its
West Coast Penguin and Seabird Education Resource
When: 2.00pm. Friday 28th November
Where: Kaniere School, 16 Camp Street, Kaniere
The Trust has been developing the education resource over the past couple of years and would
like to share and celebrate its launch with you!
Through tailor-made, fun, educational projects written especially for the West Coast, the new
resource enables teachers and youth leaders to take children on a voyage of discovery as they learn
about penguins and penguin habitat on the Coast, consider and take actions to help penguins, and
then celebrate and share their projects.
Hokitika based primary school teacher and environmental educator, Zoe Watson, has written the
material, which focusses on the ever popular blue penguin and provides information and activities
relating to the Coast's other seabirds.
Kaniere School teacher, Kristine Hickford, has provided advice along the way and is kindly providing
the space and her class to join in with the launch.
Come and join the Trust and the school children to celebrate with afternoon tea

Fwd: Invitation to the launch of our education resource, 2pm, Friday 28th November

The West Coast Penguin Trust has created an education resource with activities for children roughly in the 5-9 years age range and we're about to launch it!  First of all, we'd like to invite you to our launch next Friday at Kaniere School (see invitation attached) and secondly, I'd like to post a copy of the resource to you and to other home school coordinators on the coast and wondered if you could let me have your and other coordinator addresses please.
The resource will also be available on line on our website by next Friday so all home school parents will be able to access it.
If you have any questions, please let me know and I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards
