Maungatautari Outdoor Inquiry

posted Oct 18, 2015, 2:57 PM by Reception @TMCS

Last term some of the Maungatautari students were involved in an Inquiry topic called “Outdoor Art”.  The students explored the school grounds and mapped areas that already had outdoor art such as murals and seats.  They also identified areas that needed brightening up.  Following this the students wrote proposals for ideas that they wanted to have a go at producing.  They presented their ideas to the rest of the group and then everyone voted on what would be achievable with our limited budget.  After weeks of painting it was an exciting day when the finished pieces were dug and nailed in place.  Thanks again to Bunnings Cambridge for the donation of paint, the Rolston family for their kind donation of posts, Mr Bennetts for cutting our fence palings to size and undercoating them, and Mr Wickens for helping us to get everything in place.
