Ruahine Kindergartens

Welcome to our family

Ashhurst Kindergarten


At Ashhurst Kindergarten we have welcomed 3 goldfish. They are happily enjoying their new home in a self-sustaining ecosystem that requires little maintenance.

This setup teaches our children how plants and goldfish can benefit each other in a symbiotic relationship. The filter sucks up the water, feeds the plants, the plants filter the water and return it to the goldfish tank.

Children have taken on the role of kaitiaki for our goldfish and have contributed to the naming of List, Spritle and Dory.
