Our Whanau in Art

Room 15 created a piece of artwork that represents our whanau members and our surrounding landmarks. This tied in nicely with the term one focus of ‘Our Place.’ 


The koru represent our family members - the bigger ones are our parents/caregivers and the smaller ones are ourselves and our siblings. 


Reegan said, This is all my family. That’s Mount Tauhara and the Lake Taupo.


Austin said, This is Lake Taupo and this is my mountain and these are my family.

The blue at the bottom of our art represents our beautiful Lake Taupo and the green represents Mount Tauhara or Mount Ruapehu.

The children worked on this piece over quite a few sessions choosing to create one element at a time. We think you’ll agree with us that they are stunning!
