Students provide support to East Coast Bays Rotary Club to improve the various aspects of the environment to enrich the native ecology network.

East Coast Bays Rotary Club provides vast opportunities for students to gain a deeper understanding of New Zealand native ecology and its preservation. From planting native trees and preserving existing native fauna, to aiding in the clean up of local streams to improve water quality, there are a variety of events for students to get in behind to support with East Coast Bays Rotary Club.

In 2022, Rangitoto College students planted over 800 trees at the William Gamble Reserve along with providing further preservation practices. Additionally, students also removed 22 sacks of rubbish, 8 shopping trolleys and 5 sacks of recycling from Lucas Creek preventing further contamination to water ways.

Through participating in these opportunities alongside members of the East Coast Bays Rotary Club students can make a significant contribution to improving the environment.

Rangitoto Summit Diploma: students will need to complete two environmental service activities to qualify towards their student profiles
