Sea-ing green in the library

Franklin Law’s Daniel Cowan and Richard House (the weekend painters) with Patumahoe Primary School librarians (from left) Kirstin Harris, student librarians Bella and Tom, Administration Officer and librarian, Bronwyn Black.

When Patumahoe Primary School lead, Jade Tawhiti, mentioned the school librarians would like their space brightened up—they weren’t expecting their wish to be granted.

The community-minded staff at Franklin Law, got straight to work on revamping the library.

They supplied their in-house painters, the paint, (donated) as well as a considerable allotment of new books, with the entire team being very happy to extend their skills and contribution to this valued area of the school. There were great responses from students and teachers alike when they arrived at school on Monday morning to find their formerly beige library wall, now a brilliant blue—or ‘sea green’ as described by school bookworm and student librarian, Tom.

School librarians, Bronwyn Black and Kirstin Harris said they hoped the brightened space and new books would bring new luster to the school children’s library visits and were very grateful for Franklin Law’s contribution.

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.
