​Year 8 Rat Trap Building with Forest & Bird

On Friday a group of Year 8 students worked with Jenny from Forest & Bird, along with some volunteers to learn how to build a rat trap. They also learnt about the importance of eradicating pests in our local community to help our native wild and birdlife.

Most of these students opted to take home the traps where they will keep a record of their catches on the trap.nz website to help collect valuable data. If you too, would like a trap at your property, you can go to the trap.nz website to register your interest.
