Kura ki Pukihi Celebration


Students and their whanau were invited to the Christchurch City Council to talk about their designs.

Our students who participated in the inventionator sprints, creating digital solutions for real world problems, were invited to the Christchurch City Council on Wednesday 11 May. Here they were welcomed by Councillor Anna Galloway who chairs Te Pae Pīkari, the Youth Advisory committee. Our students delivered their fantastic pitches once again, this time to a room full of adults including whanau members who could see what they had created.
