Recently, the L2 and L3 Media Studies students had the opportunity to attend the Docs4Schools film festival in Auckland to watch the feature length documentary, Set in Stone that tells the story of the restoration of a World War I monument which stands in the Whanganui’s Pakaitore gardens. This monument is significant because, unlike others, it is the statue of a known Maori soldier, Herewini Whakarua. The students had the opportunity to benefit from a Q&A session with the filmmaker, Kevin Double, afterwards and learn some important tips about editing a documentary.

40 Hour Famine Walk - Well done to all the students and staff who participated in the 40 Hour famine walk to raise money for the Syrian refugees. They walked 20km from Millwater to Gulf Harbour, then the next team walked the same distance back. A fantastic effort, and wonderful testimony to the HBC community.

Two Year 13 students have been practicing what they preach as they strive to educate people on how to minimise their environmental footprint.
