The Tereora College year 12 ‘Environmental Sustainability’ class of 2020 are the first of 6 high schools to undergo an environmental photography programme run by Te Ipukarea Society. The programme aims to expose students towards various local environmental issues, along with introducing students to an alternative means of communication environmental messages. Photography is a powerful medium that can cross over social and language barriers, allowing the simple and effective communication of important environmental messages. There are 21 individual photographs in the online gallery each depicting an environmental message which was of personal significance to each of the students represented in the programme. Environmental messages range from waste issues to local biodiversity and invasive species.
