The Warehouse Wellington Zoofari welcomes Maraeroa School
and Pukeatua School
133 students from Maraeroa
School in Porirua and 42 from Pukeatua School in Lower Hutt
will visit Wellington Zoo on Tuesday 2 September as part of
the Warehouse Wellington Zoofari programme.
Zoofari is a partnership between Wellington Zoo and The
Warehouse that helps local low-decile schools experience
conservation-based learning programmes at the Zoo.
Warehouse’s Wellington region stores raised over $25,000
in December to assist with the costs of learning sessions at
Wellington Zoo. Schools from around the Wellington region
were invited to apply, and 16 schools will visit the Zoo as
part of the 2014 programme.
