17th May 2017 Kids Playground
Come and help us celebrate the opening of our new playground. The playground was recently completed by a work team lead by Kerry Raikes. Kerry has put his own stamp on the project, complimenting the original design with creative landscaping that integrates the playground beautifully into the site. We are very grateful for funding assistance from the local Board whom we hope will be present at the ceremony along with members of our own board of trustees. The opening ceremony will commence at 3pm on Saturday 27th May and will be followed by afternoon tea.  


7th May 2017 Dark Sky Sanctuary
A great article by Paul Charman in the NZ Herald about Great Barrier's application for International Dark Skies Sanctuary status. If successful Great Barrier would be one of only three Dark Sky sanctuaries in the world. Paul was recently at Orama for a holiday with his family and investigated the Dark Sky story during his visit. Orama is working with the local board to offer a Dark Sky experience for visitors to the north of the island and is actively advertising for a young volunteer astronomer to help develop and present the experience.Watch this space ...
