On Wednesday 11 February, all IGCSE and NCEA Level 1 Art students took a day trip to the Te Tuhi Art Gallery and the Howick Historical Village. We ambled around and explored the village while taking photos, and sketching drawings of buildings and wagons straight out of the 1860s.
Throughout the day we also dressed up in historical clothes and had our photos taken to see what we would have looked like as farmers and maids from 150 years ago. The whole trip was really interesting and we were enlightened about our land’s history and ancestors.
