Wednesday 30th March 2016
As part of the Documentary Edge Film Festival (with the generous support of the Rei Foundation), ‘Docs 4 Schools’ is offering free in-theatre screenings for year 5-13 students of the latest documentaries from around the world. This opportunity is just too good to miss and we have booked for our team to go and see the documentary “I am Eleven” on Friday 6th May at the Roxy Cinemas in Miramar. Please follow this link if you would like to…

As stated above, the entry to this documentary is free and the cost of the buses will be covered using the students’ activity fee.
But there’s more! Since we are heading into our Science term next term (and as we have the ocean so close as such a wonderful natural resource!), we thought it would be a good opportunity to combine our visit with an afternoon at The Island Bay Marine Education Centre. Their goal is ‘to inspire wise stewardship of New Zealand’s seas and marine life through exciting live exhibits and interesting educational experiences for people of all ages’. There is a minimal charge of $5 per person for this, which will be covered by your child’s activity fee. You can find out more by following this link…
We will be dropped at Island Bay for lunch and a brief talk in the ‘Octopus Headquarters’ before heading into the ‘Bait House’ for the hands-on learning! The bus will pick us up at 2pm to return to school for usual finish time.
If your family lives in Wellington or Petone, or you would prefer to pick up your child from there please contact your child’s classroom teacher and we will do our utmost to work around this with the bus company. Although please do note that we should be back to school at normal time.
We are unsure as to what the weather will be doing on this day so, to ensure they have a great day, students will need to bring:
- Warm clothes & a waterproof jacket
- Comfortable shoes for walking
- A large named, filled water bottle
- Plenty of lunch and morning tea
- Any medication they are required to carry (inhalers, etc)
- Their sunhat
