Arrowtown Field Trip

On Friday 11 June we had a fabulous day exploring the past at Lakes District Museum in Arrowtown for our Inquiry topic of Ka Mua, Ka Muri (Walking Backwards into the Future). Students were taken back in time to 1860 and attended a Victorian school lesson in Miss Grey’s school house. A few boys got the cane when they were caught in the girls playground on a Sunday, instead of being at church. Students then toured the historic buildings in Arrowtown, so we could build our understanding of how the early Chinese and European gold miners lived. The Chinese Village, town gaol, church, and houses of now sainted nuns were all discussed and explored. Our day ended with Amanda from Lakes District Museum teaching us how to pan for gold. Many students had their patience rewarded with a shiny fleck of treasure to take home.

Leaders Fundraising

Our School Leaders have been hard at work picking up and packing pine cones, so that they can raise funds for their Leadership Camp to Auckland in June. We did hope to advertise these bags here for sale, but they have sold them all in 24 hours. Watch this space as we will have more in the near future.

Hokonui Pioneer Village & Museum

We had a great time at Hokonui Pioneer Village & Museum this morning. We had a taster of what school used to be like. We got tours through the cottage, bank, museum and blacksmith. Some even took a pew at church, while others handmade butter. Thank you to the volunteers that helped students expand their knowledge of things in the good old days.
