Today's cause: Valuing our tūpuna.

Today's programme will kick off with an inspirational talk (speaker to be confirmed).

Following this inspirational talk and morning tea, art therapist Julia West will guide the children having fun and making friends with a group of residents from St Andrew's with the intention of creating a piece of art to be presented to an individual resident at the end of the day. The process will be facilitated by Julia who will help the children talk to the residents about their lives, their history, their passions and their families. Each child will be partnered with a resident and they will learn to use their interviewing and investigating skills and to turn their discoveries into art works which will be presented to their partners at the end of the day.
