Gen-i, an affiliate of Telecom New Zealand, is New Zealand’s leading IT and ICT solutions provider. In February of this year, a group of Gen-i people spent a day at CUE Haven and did some track building work and today another group, including six from last time, came out to continue the work.
Once again, Steve Jessop, championed the visit and made it happen. The team arrived at about nine and included Steve plus Andrew, Bryan, Carl, Christopher, Darren, Eric, Howard, Jason, John, Josh, Paul, Qasim, Quintin and Ray. It was the second visit for Bryan, Christopher, Paul, Quintin, Ray and Steve.
On their last visit, the team built a good part of the track around one of the ponds in the wetlands and put in the foundation posts for a bridge on the track. Subsequent teams of volunteers completed the bridge and that section of track. Our summer project for this year is to connect that track with other main tracks and roads on the property by building a boardwalk through the wetlands.
Today’s objectives were to (1) finish blazing the track by clearing vegetation and putting in steps as necessary and (2) building and installing sections of boardwalk on the cleared track. Also, we had previously installed the foundation posts for a bridge where the finished track will cross the main stream and if time permitted we would do some work on the bridge.
We spent some time getting acquainted over morning tea.
Mahrukh then gave an overview of the CUE Haven project for the benefit of the new people and Tom described the work to be done and gave a safety briefing as well.
We initially broke the group into two teams. One would begin to assemble the frames for the boardwalk. The other team would work on clearing the track and working on steps.
Clearing the track is a challenge. We had previously marked a route with flagged sticks and had sprayed down the grass to mark the track and make it easier to clear. Even so, the team needed spades, rakes, loppers and a weed whacker to get down to ground level in some areas.
In spite of the challenges, the team made excellent progress and by lunch had finished clearing all the way to the end. As it leaves the wetland the track ascends quite steeply and the team planned, cut out and installed some very nice user-friendly steps.
It was a major task but thanks to the team’s efforts the track is now totally cleared and ready for the boardwalk sections to be installed by future volunteer groups.
The other team worked on assembling boardwalk frames. The frames were put together from one and two metre sections of timber and then taken to the site.
We took the assembled frames as far as we could in the ute, but then they had to be carried down to the end of the track. It’s not as easy as they make it look – the boardwalk section frames are quite heavy!
Once the frames are wrestled into position, it is necessary to fit them to the existing track sections and also make sure that they are level. This involved levelling the ground and repositioning the frames as necessary.
The frames are then fixed into place with stakes.
Shortly after noon we broke for lunch.
That was also a good time to assess our progress and plan the work for the rest of the day.
The next task was to nail on the boardwalk planks. The whole Gen-i team worked on this task. This job also presents several challenges to ensure that the boards are properly spaced and that angles formed by the meeting of two frames are properly covered.
Because of the excellent progress the group was making, we decided to go ahead and work on the bridge while the rest of the team would work on continuing the boardwalk.
We had previously installed the footer foundation posts and cut them down to the desired level.
The challenge of the bridge work, aside from having to stand in the stream while working, was to ensure that it would be level and sturdy and not slope too much. Carl and Paul took on the job of levelling everything out and installing the bridge framework.
The results are fantastic and it only remains for a future team to nail down the top planks to finish off the bridge.
We had a great day with the Gen-i team. They were a fun group to work with and in spite of the heat and messy working conditions, they far exceeded our expectations in terms of what we accomplished. They have set a very high standard for future teams!
We want to thank Nestle for providing the Nescafe Menus and Peach Nestea for the volunteers. The iced tea especially was very much appreciated by all on such a hot day.
As part of its programme of ‘catalytic philanthropy,’ the Telecom Foundation provides each employee with a Volunteer Day which they can take off work to help out an organisation of their choice. We want to thank Telecom/Gen-i for their contribution to the community.
And a big thank you to Steve Jessop for his hard work in organising the day. Thank you for your continuing interest in our project and for championing CUE Haven amongst your colleagues.
And we very much want to thank the hard working team. It was a pleasure meeting new and old friends and you should be very proud of everything you accomplished. We really appreciate your efforts and contribution and the boardwalk/track will enable visitors to enjoy the wetlands in comfort for years to come. We look forward to having you back again!
We’ve been extremely happy with our relationship with Unitec and the valuable insights that students and lecturers from many disciplines and departments have provided. To build on our many successes, on 11 November, the senior Unitec academic staff came out for a meeting and tour of the property.
The objective was to give everyone a chance to see the latest progress on the project and to discuss next steps and future plans. Joining us were Angela Dale and Mel Galbraith from the Department of Natural Sciences, Ravi Bhat and Sukhesh Sukumaran from the Department of Management and Marketing, and Marcus Williams, Associate Dean of Research for the Department of Design and Visual Arts.
The group arrived at about ten and we had a short meeting over morning tea to discuss the objectives for the day and to brief everyone on the various projects currently underway.
We then went for a tour of the property and took a walk down the gully walking track.
At the end of the walk, we had a relaxing lunch and additional discussion.
Because one of our longer term goals is to achieve synergies with other environmental projects in the Kaipara area, we then went over to our neighbours’ at the Mataia Restoration project. We took a short walk around the historic Mataia Homestead and the beautiful gardens before the group headed back to town.
We had a truly enjoyable and productive day. It was a great chance to showcase some of our activities and also to discuss current and future projects.
We want to thank Ravi for arranging the meeting, and thank you all for taking time from your schedules to join us. And most importantly, thank you very much for your interest in CUE Haven and your support. We are very excited about our partnership with Unitec as it gives students from many disciplines an opportunity to work on real world projects to gain practical experience while contributing to a community project.
We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
On 19 September, Nick Spratt brought a group of Graphic Arts Students out to CUE Haven to learn about the project as a basis for coming up with ideas about how visual communication using text and images could improve visitor experience at CUE Haven.
The students, who are second year students working toward a degree in Design and Visual Arts had all chosen CUE Haven as the project they would work on as part of their coursework. During the visit the students took photos, made drawings and brainstormed about ways to use signage throughout the property to assist, inform and educate future visitors.
The group included Nick plus students Camille, Chris, Julian, Louise, Paige, Sam and Yan.
After their visit, the students went off to develop their ideas. They took the project very seriously and several students either contacted us for further information or made follow up visits to CUE Haven to get more feel for the property.
We had a preliminary meeting on 31 October where the students described the designs they were thinking about. They showed us their research and their concept plans and we asked questions and provided feedback on what they had come up with.
On 13 November we returned to the Unitec Graphic Arts department to view the students’ final designs. Several of the students had produced actual signs or artwork based on the previous meeting’s discussion.
Nick hosted the session and Sarah Sheehan, Auckland Council’s Senior Education for Sustainability Advisor was also present. Sarah has considerable experience in environmental education and she had met with the students on their visit to CUE Haven in September to give them some additional insights about environmental education issues.
At both presentations, we were deeply impressed by the students and the designs they came up with. It was clear that they had listened and understood the vision for CUE and they had embraced the philosophy and come up with fantastic ideas and designs. The presentations and the materials were extremely professional and each student gave us new ideas and insights.
Here, in no particular order, are the designs the students came up with.
Chris’s concept was to produce signs that are both participatory as well as inspiring and to ask rather than to tell. His hope is that the signs will engage the visitor and make them look for details that might not be immediately obvious. Because he wants the signs and quotes to be inspiring but portrayed in an interesting way, he experimented with several different uses of colour, symbols and text.
Louise chose to focus on combining art, wildlife, and inspiration. She also had the exciting idea of preserving the history behind CUE Haven as a farm and bridging to the future with signs and photographs.
Her ultimate design is beautiful signs which will educate future visitors about the trees and animals around them and guide them to look for what is not immediately obvious. Her signs and photos include inspirational quotes and also tell the story of the history of the property, for example, by retaining the old troughs used to water the cattle when the property was a farm.
Paige came up with a variety of exciting ideas all centred around the concept of CUE Haven being place for learning and cultivating understanding and enlightenment.
Her designs make use of inspirational quotes which she is proposing to place on beautiful signs which will have lovely artwork and will require to visitors to study and contemplate the quotes and the symbolism of the design.
One of the most unique aspects of Paige’s design is the concept of a little “CUE Birdie” who will guide visitors as they explore the property. The letters “C,” “U,” “E” form the eye, wing and tail of the bird and it will appear on signs throughout the property to “guide visitors as a messenger communicating philosophical ideas.”
Paige made some sample signs as well:
Additionally, she offered some ideas for unique places for other types of inspirational signs.
Yan’s design focuses on bird life and she has created beautiful hand painted images of native birds found at CUE Haven on recycled boards. The signs will be placed where visitors are most likely to see the birds and include interesting information about them.
Camille worked on signs to educate visitors about bird life and she also designed directional signs which are intended to capture the provenance of CUE Haven as a farm by placing the signs on old tools and implements.
Her design included laser cutouts of birds which had interesting bits of information etched on to the ply. The cutouts would be a fantastic addition to the CUE Haven landscape as they are educational, attractive and unique.
Camille also painted feathers and heads of various birds on hand made paper with the details identifying the image noted on the back. These signs could be yet another way visitors could identify the birds they encountered at CUE Haven.
Julian took a novel approach to his design. He considered that in the future, as Auckland continues to grow and spread, a green space like CUE Haven may well be a curiosity. His design is based around the idea of circus posters which advertised unusual attractions. The result is both whimsical and thought provoking signs.
Sam’s design consists of three separate areas. First, artistic signs for way finding and signs to encourage visitors to slow down, explore and learn.
Second, he has created a beautiful and thought provoking painting which could be displayed on the property.
Finally, he crafted a booklet for visitors to help them identify and learn about bird life on the property. It is a beautiful resource with both technical information, folklore and humour.
Working with the students has been an inspirational and educational experience for us and all of the designs are something that would enhance the CUE Haven property and add value to the visitor experience.
Sarah, many thanks for rearranging your schedule to meet with us again, and for providing very useful guidance and feedback.
And our thanks to Auckland Council for their continued support of our efforts to make CUE Haven a place for enjoyment and learning.
Nick, thank you for your support and for giving your students the opportunity to work on the CUE Haven project.
And a very big Thank You to Camille, Chris, Julian, Louise, Paige, Sam and Yan – Thank You for your creativity, hard work and for engaging so fully with the CUE Haven project. We have been very impressed by your commitment and your talent, which is evident in the wonderful work you have produced. We very much look forward to working with you next year as we take the project to the next level.
The New Zealand branch of the Shah Satnam Ji Green “S” Welfare Force made a major contribution to CUE Haven and thanks to all their efforts we exceeded our planting goal this year. We have become good friends with the group and today some of them came out to help work on a boardwalk walking track we are building through the wetlands.
The walking track will be a great addition to our restoration project. It will give us access to an area of the property that is very difficult to get into and to move around in because it is very swampy. The boardwalk will enable us to get access to plant more trees in this area and will enable future visitors to enjoy the wetlands easily.
Aman, Ankush, Bharpoor, Dalveer, Pooja, Ranjit, Simarpreet, Suhas and Veerpal arrived about nine. After morning tea, and booting up in waterproof gumboots, the team set off to the work area.
Before we started work, the team planted a ceremonial tree near the start of the boardwalk. The Green ‘S’ Force team has assisted with planting trees at numerous conservation projects throughout the North Island and last night the group received an award from the Keep Waitakere Beautiful organisation to recognise their conservation efforts in the Whau catchment area of west Auckland. At the award ceremony they were given a Kohuhu (pittosporum) tree and they chose to plant the tree at CUE Haven. Ankush, who just arrived in New Zealand the day before, planted the tree on behalf of the team.
Congratulations Green ‘S’ Force on your well-deserved award and we thank you for planting the award tree at CUE Haven. Your much valued conservation efforts are having a very positive impact on our planet and may you continue to plant many many more trees!
The track work today involved three very different tasks.
First we had to cut and build steps from the road down to the wetland area. It is steep and slippery. The work involved figuring out where to put the steps and then digging them out.
Once the steps were formed, it was necessary to support them with wood planks and stakes. The group took turns fitting in and securing the planks.
We then filled in the steps with soil and later on we will cover the soil with gravel to make sure that the surface is safe for future visitors.
The next task involved blazing a trail through the wetlands where the boardwalk will go. The entire wetland area is covered with grasses and other vegetation and it was necessary to clear it out down to the ground so that we can install the boardwalk sections and secure them in place. It is very difficult work because the vegetation is thick and the ground is uneven and wet.
The team attacked the job with spades, choppers, mattocks and rakes and cleared a substantial section of new track, working their way around the kahikatea trees planted as memorials by members of the community.
The next task involved building and installing boardwalk sections in a previously cleared area of track.
We brought the timber down to the work area and one group assembled the box frames for the boardwalk sections while another group nailed in the top planks.
The job was very challenging because the boardwalk is curved and therefore the top planks have to be fitted carefully. The team worked together very well and came up with several innovative and creative ideas on how to make the track sections fit together properly.
The team then broke for a late lunch and refreshing snacks.
In just a few hours the team made a major contribution to the wetland board walk. Future volunteer groups will continue the work and the wetland track will give us the ability to plant and enjoy this area.
Our heartfelt thanks the Green ‘S’ Force for all their hard work today and their continuing efforts with our restoration project. We look forward to having you back in 2014!!
Murrays Bay Intermediate School is a New Zealand Enviroschool located on Auckland’s North Shore. In June of this year, sustainability teacher David Walker brought out a group of students to do some planting and learning activities and today another group of twenty-eight Murrays Bay students came out with David along with student teacher Laura Griffin, parents Jean Olzen and Jean Roberts and driver Karen Robertshaw. David, Karen, Jean and Jean as well as a few of the students had been out with the group in June and it was great to see everyone again.
Also joining us for the day were Shelley Hackett for the Auckland Council TFS and Wastewise programme and Marnie Prickett and Sophie Tweddle of the Auckland Council Waicare programme.
However, there was a bit of a complication. Last week we were notified by the electric company that they would be cutting the power for the day to do some major line maintenance in the area. Because we are far from the central city, we rely on rainwater collection for our water supply and the water supply relies on an electric pump. Without electricity we would have no water, flushing toilets or any ability to provide warm drinks or snacks.
We got in touch with Electrix, the company that provides the maintenance and they kindly offered to provide us with a generator for the day. About an hour before the students arrived, Nigel and his crew came up and set up the generator and we were ready to go. We really appreciate Electrix helping us out and want to thank the Electrix Warkworth team for their friendly assistance and support.
The plan for the day was for the students to work potting up some seedlings in the nursery and learn about waste minimisation with Shelley and about water quality with Marnie and Sophie and then go for a walk in the CUE Haven bush.
Shelley, Marnie and Sophie arrived before the students and got set up. Marnie and Sophie set up the testing gear by the ponds while Shelley got the nursery ready by setting out the tiny seedlings that the students would be potting up.
The weather forecast was for intermittent showers and that turned out to be exactly right! The students arrived at around ten and the Nestle Hot Chocolate generously sponsored by Nestle NZ was a welcome warming treat during morning tea. Thanks Nestle!
Because of the rain, we had the introductory briefing in the garage. Mahrukh welcomed everyone, introduced Shelley, Marnie and Sophie and gave a brief history and overview of the CUE Haven project for the benefit of the people who hadn’t been out before.
David then broke the students into two groups. One would go with Shelley and work in the nursery and the other would do the Waicare analysis. The groups would then swap over so that all the students would get a chance to participate in the different activities.
The nursery work involved taking tiny seedlings and putting them into larger pots. The little plants will spend the summer in the nursery and will be planted next winter. Shelley did a demo for the students.
And in no time they were potting up like pros.
We’d like to thank Trees For Survival for supplying the little manuka, kanuka and flax seedlings for the students to pot up.
In addition to the tiny seedlings, the students also transplanted some older, larger totara, nikau, and karaka plants that we had in the nursery which needed to be transferred to larger pots.
The students also found a few worms in addition to the plants.
A big thank you to Jean, Laura and Jean who helped to make sure that the students didn’t run out of potting mix!
By the end of the morning, both teams managed to pot up over 600 trees!
Marnie and Sophie started their Waicare presentations at the cottage. Marnie gave the students satellite maps of CUE Haven as well as the neighbourhood of Murrays Bay School. She had them notice the differences between a built up urban area and a rural area and used the maps to get the students discussing how the different types of environments would affect waterways and water quality. She also explained the importance of water quality and some of the issues affecting water quality in rural and urban areas.
The group then went to the wetlands where Marnie and Sophie had earlier taken water samples and set up their testing equipment.
Marnie had the students help with tests to check the levels of oxygen in the water samples.
She also explained the concept of water clarity and what it meant and the students all had a chance to check the clarity of the water samples.
Sophie explained the importance of temperature to animal and plant life in the water system and how to properly measure water temperature and also check for pH levels. She also helped the students identify macroinvertebrates that were living in the ponds.
Once all of the students had done both activities, the entire group came together and Shelley did a Wastewise presentation. It was an eye-opening experience for the students and even the adults!! Shelley’s interactive presentation had the students learning about landfills and how much of the stuff they throw away ends up in landfills or the ocean. They learned about what happens to man-made materials such as plastics in the ocean. They then did an exercise to help them determine where waste could be reduced, reused or recycled in order to decrease the amount of waste going into landfills and the environment.
At the end of Shelley’s presentation, Marnie handed out prizes to the students who had answered the most correct questions.
The students then had a quick lunch before their next activity.
After lunch Tom took the group on a nature walk through the bush to learn more about the CUE Haven restoration project.
We had a great day with the Murrays Bay students. They were enthusiastic and interested and we were especially happy when at the end of the day when Dave asked the students to talk about some of the things they had learned it was clear that they had been paying attention and absorbing all the new information they heard.
Many thanks to Shelley, Marnie and Sophie for your fantastic presentations and creative input into the day. And we want to thank Auckland Council for making it possible for you to join us.
Also, Jean, Jean, Laura and Karen thank you for all your hard work and helping with the day’s activities.
Dave, a very big thank you for your ongoing interest in the CUE Haven restoration project. Your interest and enthusiasm are evident in the attitudes of the students.
And finally a big Thank you to the students for a fun and interesting day. Those of you in Year 7 we hope you will come back next winter to plant the trees you potted up today out in the field. For the Year 8 students, we wish you all the best as you move on to high school and we do hope you too will come visit us again in the future.
For the past three years, Mel Galbraith, senior lecturer at Unitec, has brought a class of ecology students out to CUE Haven for a field trip. Two previous students have also done a portion of the practicum field work at CUE Haven.
The objective of the visit is to give the students a first-hand look at a bush restoration project. This year we decided to expand the agenda to include a visit to our neighbour, Mataia, so that the students could see a slightly more mature project and also to learn about the kiwi release that had taken place at Mataia earlier in the year.
The group arrived at CUE Haven at ten. Mel brought 15 students as well as his colleagues from the Department of Natural Sciences Don Mardle and botanist Dan Blanchon. Gill and Kevin Adshead, our neighbours from Mataia also joined us.
We all got acquainted over morning tea.
Mahrukh gave the group an overview of the CUE Haven project and explained the history of the property and the project, and discussed our plans for the future.
Tom then took the group on long walk along the walking tracks pointing out the different plantings over the years since we started the restoration project.
Along the way, Tom explained operational issues with respect to the restoration project and discussed weed and pest control, walking track construction and management, challenges associated with weather and wind, wetlands management and a number of other issues.
We made frequent stops to explore interesting things along the way and discussed any questions the students had.
The students found several skinks on the walk and were able to identify both the native Copper Skink as well as the introduced Rainbow Skink.
Once we finished up the walk the group returned to the cottage and had a quick lunch.
After lunch we headed down the road to Mataia.
The Mataia property has been in the Gardener family for generations and we met at the Old Homestead which was the family home built in 1891. For most of its history the 3,000 plus acre property has been a farm and quarry but Gill and Kevin have been restoring almost 1,000 acres and in May and June of this year they released 14 kiwi on the property. You can read details about the kiwi release here.
Gill gave the students a history of the property and explained the Mataia Restoration project and related conservation efforts.
We then went outside and Kevin demonstrated the kiwi monitoring equipment. Each kiwi has a tracking device attached to its leg and each device transmits at a different frequency. By tuning to each bird’s frequency and moving the antenna, it is possible to determine where each kiwi is and also get a general idea of their activity.
Kevin and Gill have also installed an infrared camera in the bush and showed us some videos of kiwi moving around at night.
Gill then took us on a walk in the Mataia bush. Because of its size, there are many different environments on the property from mature native forests to salt marshes and mangrove swamps. Gill pointed out different features of the property and also discussed predator control and other restoration issues.
The students had lots of questions and also took some time to explore the bush in detail.
When we got back from the walk, Gill and Kevin had organised a refreshing afternoon tea and the group had a chance to relax a bit and ask additional questions.
It was a fantastic day and we want to thank Mel for his support and for organising the visit. And thanks to Don and Dan and the students for taking the time to come out. Although the students were visiting as part of their learning, we learned a lot from them and were very impressed at their level of knowledge and enthusiasm.
We wish the students all the best with their endeavours and we hope you will all come back to visit us again soon!
On 1 October, a group of Unitec Landscape Architecture students visited CUE Haven to learn about the project and our plans for the future and to identify areas where landscape architecture could assist with the project and enhance visitor experience.
Since then, under the direction of Ian Henderson, Program Director, Landscape Design, the students have been working to develop concept designs for areas that they wanted to work on.
This morning we met at the Unitec Landscape Design studio with Ian and students Alicia, Alisa, Eleanor, Gary, Jala, Sharon and Val so the students could present their designs. Each student explained the design area they selected and explained the concept of their design and what they were trying to accomplish. They showed drawings and discussed various design issues.
Ian critiqued each presentation along with Penny Cliffin of the School of Landscape Architecture and Jeanette Budgett of the School of Architecture.
We were extremely impressed with all of the students’ designs and all of the ideas are very interesting, creative and exciting.
Here is a brief summary of each of the students’ designs.
Jala was interested in the natural amphitheatre near the top of the property between the Duke of Edinburgh Hillary Grove and the site of the future Learning Centre. Her vision is for a platform stage and open seating to cater for up to 250 people. It would be a facility where people could gather for education, inspiration and enrichment.
The design includes innovative features such as a dramatically curved stage roof and a fire trough in front of the stage for aesthetic and practical purposes. The space would be managed further with the use of an interesting earth wall to mark the entrance and a manuka hedge to provide wind protection.
During the tour of CUE Haven, Gary had noticed a number of places where he thought it would be nice to have seating where visitors could relax and enjoy the sounds and sights. His design identifies each area and includes how proposed seating areas would look.
Gary took into account how the materials would be transported to the remote rest areas and also the cost of the benches so he proposed using readily sourced natural materials like macrocarpa for constructing the log benches. Additionally he proposed enhancing each rest area with different plants which would provide wind protection, shelter from the sun, or flowering trees like kowhai and pohutakawa that would add colour to the space.
Val focused on the pond at the top of the property and came up with an imaginative and dramatic concept that incorporates a waterfall. Her plan includes planting specific native species in the right position around the pond to help increase biodiversity. She proposed circulating the water through a regeneration zone of aquatic plants to filter out contaminants and prevent algae, thereby making the pond reasonably maintenance free. The water would circulate out towards some big rocks to create a waterfall beside which would be seating areas for people to enjoy the space.
Alisa came up with ideas on how to improve the walking track network on the property with tracks that are easy to walk and require minimal maintenance. The underlying theme of her design is to have people walk through the bush, not past it.
She proposed a long track which traverses much of the property and uses switchbacks and curves to minimise the grade. Her rolling grade track design is built around best practices for building walking tracks and is also sensitive to the landscape, the objectives of the CUE Haven project and the needs of future visitors.
Alicia’s design also looks at the area between the future Learning Centre and the DoEH Grove. Her visionary plan looks to how CUE Haven will be in a decade when a lot of the trees have matured. Her plan involves the careful planting of specific trees now so as the native bush develops it creates a haven for visitors to discover and enjoy. The idea is for people to stop, look and listen to what is around them.
Sharon’s design calls for a boardwalk and planting around the pond near the top of the property. Her concept is both aesthetic and practical with a focus on improving water quality in the pond, stabilising the banks, controlling erosion and attracting native birds and protecting restoration plantings.
Eleanor focused on the opposite end of the property and her design is for a raised boardwalk through the wetlands. Her design includes different ideas for how to construct wetland boardwalks and also incorporates ideas for building viewing platforms so that visitors can observe the wildlife. Her proposal is very timely as we will be constructing a boardwalk through the wetland this summer and we will be able to incorporate her suggestions.
We were very impressed with all of the students’ designs. Their presentations and materials were very professional and their ideas were creative and innovative. In addition to great ideas for the future, we also got some excellent ideas and advice for things we can do today, such as track building ideas and ideas for synergies with other ongoing projects.
They had taken into account our vision for CUE Haven and have added much value to the project.
Thank you Ian for arranging the presentations today and for coordinating and supporting this project. And thank you Jeanette and Penny for taking the time today to provide constructive feedback to the students.
And our many thanks to the students for their great ideas, hard work and professional presentations. We wish you all the best with your continuing studies and do hope you will continue to be involved with the CUE Haven project.
