Our photography exhibition

Learners of Years 3 and 4  were proud to present their celebration of cultures through the arts.

Each class in Year 3/4 used a different discipline to explore the central idea.

Making cultural graffiti
Singapore through a lens
Cultures and their Visual Art
Sharing learner created Dreamtime stories
Cultures and their music
Stories and culture

4G used this as an opportunity to showcase our submission of life in Singapore to the photography project My Story, Our Story, Your Story being run by Ahuroa school in New Zealand. The photos will be on display as part of the New Zealand photography festival. Mary Thurston, New Zealand Deputy High Commissioner to New Zealand, was a guest of honour today. You can find our submissions to the project here on our flickr account.

We were proud to have her visit our class. We performed the waiata we learned especially for the occasion  Maya was a Kaea, the leader, for our group. We were proud to be able to sing in Maori for the occasion.

The children were proud to share their learning with their parents and the wider community.

A huge thank you to the wonderful Ms Linda and Ms Jo for all their hard work in helping us with our performance.
