Subsequently, we hope, we and the children will benefit from learned techniques which will help in what is an increasingly busy, complex and sometimes stressful world.

Room Rimu had a wonderful trip down into our local bush yesterday. We walked down the main Kokako Bush Track (searching for minibeasts along the way) and entered Onaia Stream at the bottom (still on the hunt for minibeasts!).
