Latest News

On the 20th of september the College environment group went out into the community and collected rubbish in collaboration with the Keep New Zealand Beautiful trust in an effort to clean up the streets in our community. The event was planned and organised by Maia Harris and Demetrio Cooper from the college environment group.  We had a great turn out with lots of support from our group members who attended the event. The event was open to the community and we had other members of the community turn up and help with the collection including both Pahiatua and St Anthony’s primary schools who had students collect rubbish in the community throughout the day in groups. The event was a big success and the College Environment group hope to hold similar events in the near future.
