Kia Manawanui @ Auckland Museum
Today the Kia Manawanui senior syndicate went on an adventure to Auckland Museum. The sun was shining and the students were excited, a fantastic way to start Week 4!
We organised the trip to help our students investigate myths and legends as part of our inquiry unit this term. We had two educator sessions; Te Ao Pasifika looking at the world through a Polynesian perspective, and Ancient Civilisations where the students became archaeologists and investigated artefacts from ancient Egypt, Greece, Italy and Scandinavia.
A few spare minutes were also used to check out the amazing and very moving war memorial monuments and galleries, still decorated with beautiful remembrance poppies.
We had some wonderful parent and teacher helpers on the day and the students had a full on entertaining and educational day!
