Oratia School

Region: Auckland

Art form: Multi-Disciplinary / Documentary

Project name: The Little School in the Valley

Creative name: Martin Sercombe, Britta Pollmuller

Project information: The project will explore the history of the school and community of Oratia through reminiscence, archive research and animation. Year 5 and 6 students will work in small teams interviewing older residents, collecting stories and animating some of the funniest or most memorable ones. With help from the Oratia Folk Museum and local historians, we will explore living memory through the following topics: school days, working lives and recreation. Reminiscences, archive material and animations will be intercut to make a 30-minute documentary video for screening to the local and wider community.

This project will draw on our rich heritage, whilst building on it further by creating a multimedia record of reminiscences and living history.

Project starting: February 2021
