Legacy Projects

This is a special week for our students.  While half the Campus is out on Expedition, (which is a cool experience in itself), the half that stay in focus on a what we call a Legacy Project.
Pounamu and Swamp Kauri Toki for a Koha 

This was my favourite project


This is pretty self explanatory and is what is sounds like, a project to leave a Legacy behind at the campus.  Something they are proud of that can benefit the future students coming here.
Wall mural with a message from the boys to the boys.

These project range from the very tangible, things like artwork, building furniture, records boards.

Sports field Score Board

Also the intangible, things like, composing music, advice for the next cohort, teaching units.
Minecraft world for Social Studies Unit

All of this gets wrapped up at the end of the year at a Celebration of Learning Day.  Here they make a presenation board showing their Legacy Project and what they have learned.  The community is invited to come and view this and while the students stand beside their work community members wander around and ask questions.  It is a great way to connect with the community and for the students to show off what they have achieved and learned.
