Welcome to Build Our Culture, the first Big Project at HPSS. Our Year 9 students (13 years old) have been working with local construction companies A V Jennings and a community development firm Hobsonville Land Company to explore the value of Hobsonville Point in the past, present and future. The project involved:
- Designing banners (1.8m x 3.0m) to
be printed and displayed in the community next to construction sites, to
reflect the past, present and future of this new community using HPSS
- Exploring this
context collaboratively, developing technical and thinking skills alongside
conceptual understandings of community and cultural values. Modes of
exploration can be wide-ranging such as performance, design, writing, visual,
action based, history, sculpture, sport, etc. Non picture based contexts will
be captured in a photographic visual for the banners.
- Exhibiting and sharing these new skills and understandings in an Exhibition at the school and Hobsonville Point Farmers Market - where the community can see our learning journey and final outcome of this Big Project.
