Our role

We coordinate the Enviroschools programme in Canterbury, working alongside Toimata and our regional partners to create a vibrant and supportive regional Enviroschools network. 

Toimata Foundation, a not-for-profit trust based in Hamilton, provides a national hub and works with local government and community agencies to build strong regional networks.

Our team of experienced facilitators guide, motivate and support our network of schools to develop their Enviroschools journey.
