Term 3 snapshots

30/9/2020  We hosted a range of groups in Term 3 and look forward to a busy and more ‘normal’ Term 4!  Students engage with NZ history through our personalised hands-on Education Programmes.  Each group brings unique perspectives, gaining a deeper understanding of not only our history,  but also themselves and others. Thank you all for visiting; we love the new things we learn from you too.  Take a look at some of our awesome visitors!
