Floating Classrooms

Each year hundreds of tamariki are launched on a voyage of discovery, learning and leadership development on our Floating Classrooms, along with their teachers, adult supporters and invited guests.

Project Island Song’s Floating Classrooms programme is an in-the-field education programme generously funded by the Joyce Fisher Charitable Trust. The programme is tackling this challenge by introducing primary school students primarily from the Bay of Islands to the realities of sustaining the pest-free Ipipiri island wildlife sanctuary – home to re-introduced, endangered native birds, reptiles, and invertebrates.

We’re working on inspiring and educating our next generation of conservationists so that they gain an understanding of ecological restoration and enable them to take over this important work and promote kaitiakitanga.

Our educators use curriculum aligned activities and resources to deliver this unique opportunity to nurture conservation education. The Floating Classrooms are aimed at Years 5– 7 (Level 3) and can help you meet your curriculum learning objectives.
