Innovation as students plan Wellington visit.
The children are working hard to fund the trip, where they will visit parliament, see the Gallipoli story at Te Papa and visit WETA workshops. They will visit Taupo and Rotorua en route. Several of the children have not travelled far from home before and are nervous but very excited at the prospect of the trip.
Teacher Deb Rei said; “this is a fantastic opportunity for our class. It will provide us with a wonderful authentic context for our learning.”
The children, parents and staff have come up with fund raising ideas where the children can participate. The children used their chrome books to design posters for the Car Boot Sale on Saturday July 25 and a Hangi which they will be preparing with whanau and the community on Thursday August 13 for delivery the next day. Orders can be placed with the office on or before 7th August. The class thank all those who have helped and look forward to meeting more at the coming events. Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
