This week we welcomed three girls into the WNA Ohana. With all the craziness of middle school camp and just third quarter in general I had kind of forgotten we had ordered them. On Monday morning, my wife and I headed to Asagi Hatchery with a box, heatlamp, and a lot of excitement. Read More »
Growing up in Hawaii, we are surrounded by natural beauty, mostly fresh air, and so much opportunity to go outside and play. I grew up in Hilo where there always seemed to be a empty lot that was over grown.

The WNA Garden is full of life, including our resident chickens. Affectionately known as, “The Girls,” they love oats, fish food, and cuddles.

Sustainability has been a focus of WNA for a while now. Our garden has been at the center of that focus. Every class has their own garden bed and are a part of every step of that garden bed. We also have an aquaponics system that the students get to experiment with, learn about, and maintain. Part of sustainability is eating what you are growing and some of the 3rd and 4th graders got a unique first-hand experience.Read More »
