The Ecorigami Club meets weekly to test students' patience, persistence and precision with advanced and intriguing origami projects, whilst also encouraging paper recycling and reusing processes.

Each week club members teach and learn a diverse range of both decorative and utilitarian models.  In doing so, students can gain an appreciation of the ancient Japanese art form, origami.

More than that, the club collects used paper from various departments around the College, as a way to give paper a second chance and to raise awareness on alarming deforestation rates.

The club hosts monthly competitions and plans to start fundraising efforts to donate to WWF and other environmental charities.

Sprouting Growth Fundraiser

We are having a fundraiser sprout-planting event at the end of March!

If you would like to plant a vege seed to be able to take home, bring along a gold coin donation next week!

All proceeds will go towards supporting Trees that Count, a national charity seeking to help New Zealanders plant millions more native trees for climate change. Students also have the option of attending a box-pot origami-making session, which will be used as pots for the sprouts. All materials will be provided.
