Our Keas Section

Keas meet on Tuesdays from 5pm – 6pm

Term 3 Keas programme

Nature is a captivating playground for our Keas. It’s time to craft binoculars and embark on a nature adventure exploring the natural world that surrounds us to discover winter wonders and develop observation skills.

Growing seedlings in egg cartons can be both fun and rewarding. In this meet our Keas will learn about germination and nature’s way of bringing life to the world. We'll then create a mini garden to watch the transformation from a dormant seed to a vibrant plant over the following weeks.

Keas Term 3 Week 3 – Twig Rafts

6 August @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Forests are like Earth’s natural water factories - they collect, store, and distribute water to keep everything thriving. In this meet we’ll discover some of the watery highways that flow through forests. Then it's time to set sail by letting your creativity flow and making your own miniature raft using twigs, flax, leaves and grasses and watch it float downstream.

Keas Term 3 Week 4 – Bird Feeders

13 August @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Birds play vital roles in forest ecosystems. In this meet Keas will develop an understanding and appreciation of these feathered inhabitants and how they've shaped plant life globally. We’ll then be making a pinecone bird feeder so they can enjoy watching the birds feast on this natural treat!
