Welcome to our 2012 GATE programme at Freyberg High School. This year we are exploring the question Is the money we spend on conservation worth it? Or, looking at it another from another angle Is there a price we can place on conservation? Over the year our group of GATE Year 9 and 10 studets will develop their own inquiry within these overaching questions. One of the starting points to all of this is to ask yourself and your families, What does conservation mean to you? What value do you place on it and why?
