Farming Flounder with Kauri Flats School

 Have you heard of farming flounder?  Well for a lot of us in Room 3 this is something very new.  We are delighted to share that we are in partnership with Kauri Flats school to farm flounder.

This morning our entire school headed to our Tamaki riverside to support our school flounder team.  We said karakia and sang himene as part of this support. We have never done this before as a school so as you can imagine it was very special time. We have just met the team who have returned and according to one student we have caught more than 20 baby flounder. They are so tiny they look to be about 2 - 3cm in length. They will be placed in our special flounder tank where they will cared for as they grow. Congratulations to the the flounder project team. We look forward to seeing what happens next with this project.
